(speaking in foreign languages) - Hello, I'm Carrie Dils, and I'd like to welcome you to WordPress and Internationalization. As you may know, I'm a huge fan of WordPress and love its mission to democratize publishing through opensource GPL software. This means that WordPress exists to help you publish content on the web no matter who you are or where you live. Internationalization, which is the process of writing code in a way that makes it easy to translate into other languages, is a really important part of this mission.
In this course, I'd like to explore the benefits of internationalization, go through the various translation functions available in PHP and WordPress, and show you how to make your themes or plugins translation ready. Are you ready to join me for the journey? Well, pack your bags, saddle up your horses, and let's get to it!
