Allow plugin developers to get their plugins translated by the piwik community #7883
We already have some more or less successful plugins listed on plugins.piwik.org
As we have a community helping us to translate Piwik to many languages on transifex, we should give plugin developers the possibility to get their plugins translated.
There is not that much to do to make that possible:
Most Piwik & PiwikPRO plugins are already available for translation on Transifex.
@piwik/core-team Thoughts or suggestions anyone?
Non-Maintainer users are not able to fully use the api methods for the project.
I've justed tested that with my own plugin ReferrersManager.
The only other solution I see right now, would be not to allow the developer to update on his own, but to create pull requests for their plugins to update the translations...
Overall it's a super idea to provide easy way for Third party plugin developers to get their plugins translated and reusing our transifex tool.
If we do this, how will the plugin developer import the translations in the plugin repo? would it be automatic or would developer need to manually import translations.
I'd do the initial set up, which contains an auto update path for english translations on git.
Nevertheless, I'm still searching for another solution. I've created a project for my plugin and none of the translators already started to translate it. I guess that's because they would need to switch to the project... Maybe I can find a solution where we could handle that with only on project

Ok. I found a solution how to handle all in one project.
So we will have a new resource for each third party plugin within our piwik transifex project.
Anymore thoughts or comments?

We published the blog post: How to get your Piwik plugin translated in many languages?
Therefore this issue is closed: translators of open source plugins can now easily get their plugins translated by the Piwik translator community. Really a great move @sgiehl
