WordPress Translation Strings

New Chart – WordPress Translation Strings

Rami Yushuvaev 0 Comments

Introducing the WordPress Translation Strings chart. The chart displays the total number of translation strings for each WordPress version.


The chart is based on the PO/MO files comes with WordPress and sums the total number of all the translation strings.


Only in three WordPress versions we see a decrease in the total number of translation strings.

WordPress 4.5 had the highest decrease on translation strings. The reason was the removal of Default Themes translation strings from WordPress install. But when delving into the numbers we see that if we neutralized Default Themes translation strings this version had more translation strings comparing to the previous version.
