This week we share news about Admin UI Internationalization progress by engineering, threaded messaging on Slack, the complete naming history of eZ Systems releases and more news, social media and events.
Progress on Admin UI Internationalization
David Liedle, Technical Product Manager at eZ, made an important announcement on Slack this week: “Who is interested in translating the Admin UI text into your native language? Join us in #i18n (Slack) to learn how to contribute! It’s fast and easy thanks to our Engineers and Crowdin.com.”
Bertrand Dunogier, lead engineer and developer advocate at eZ, also shared information on this topic. Bertrand refers to the story on Jira, about Crowdin's in-context translation integration. The documentation for this in-context translation is in review.
Threaded messaging comes to Slack
"When you’re working with your team in Slack, discussions can move quickly and cover a lot of ground. Now with Threads, a new way to connect related messages, it’s easier to follow and manage the variety of conversations happening in Slack."
This new feature is very useful, also in our Slack channels, where our members ask questions, discuss ideas and more. Read the full blog, as it also covers how to manage your threads and when to use them.
