WordPress Translation Strings

Total Translation Strings

Data Sources

The raw data for this chart is based on WordPress Core Translation. Each WordPress version has thousands of translation strings grouped into several PO/MO files.

This chart displays the total number of translation strings for each WordPress version.

History

At the beginning WordPress core had a single file containing all the translation strings. Over time the file was splitted into several projects (Front End, Administration, Network Admin and Continents & Cities). Older version had more files (Multisite, Default Themes, etc).

Every year since 2010, WordPress introduces a new Default Theme. Each theme had its own translation strings.

WordPress 3.0 merged Multisite into WordPress core, which added another translation files. In addition to the translation strings added by the new Default Theme.

To reduce load time, WordPress 3.4 splitted the main translation file into two files: Front End and Administration. In addition, Multisite renamed to Network.

WordPress 4.0 changed the installation workflow, now you choose the language before installing WordPress.

WordPress 4.5 removed the Default Themes translation strings from core.
