The idea for this initiative was born during a session “Translation Handling rethought” at the TYPO3 Camp Mitteldeutschland 2022.
Subsequently, there was a workshop and a presentation at the Developer Days 2022, in which the feedback of the community with regard to translations in TYPO3 was collected, evaluated and weighted.
Based on the results, similar events were held at the TYPO3 Camps RheinRuhr, Mitteldeutschland, Berlin-Brandenburg, Hamburg and Munich. In addition, corresponding discussions took place online in the user groups and at the Developer Days 2023.
With the data collected in this way, we intend to conduct a detailed survey within the target groups during the founding phase of the initiative, in order to obtain more concrete information beyond the limited scope of the TYPO3 events and the “usual suspects” attending those events.
Based on this verified information, we then will put together individual work packages that will contribute in the medium to long term to improving translation handling for the benefit of all TYPO3 users.
