WordPress Origin Story

Ended up with WordPress when I wanted to migrate my blog in Russian about working as an expat in Oman to my own domain and made it a tri-lingual site. Since then I’ve helped lots of friends to get started, too.
When I noted that the themes I loved and some plugins I wanted weren’t available in the languages i needed, I started translating them.
Now I’m one of the global mentors for the WordPress translation efforts and an active participant in the Swedish WordPress community, although I live in Barcelona, Spain.

The great and versatile tool WordPress can be free thanks to the contributions from thousands of users. And I think it’s great that one can “give back” to WordPress and the community in so many different ways. I’m not a coder (although I may be able to find and fix some small and simple errors in PHP/CSS/JavaScript). But where I really can make a difference, that’s in making WordPress available in Swedish.

Later I even became a global mentor for WordPress translation, so one could say that I support the processes that make WordPress available in more than 70 language versions. Did you know, that 55% (these figures are for June 2021) of all WordPress installations are using a translated version of WordPress? I’m proud to be a part of that!
