Developer’s and web designer’s use WordPress due to its extreme flexibility and customization  WordPress also has built in functionality for multilingual support which is also one of the main reasons why WordPress is popular among many.  The WordPress community has already translated the blogging platform into over 70+ languages

As WordPress is a very common platform for thaana websites, many believe that it is essential for WordPress to include Native Dhivehi Language Support.  A local blogger Aadhu has taken initiative in translating the WordPress to thaana. Anyone who is interested in the project may contribute by using the WordPress translation engine GlotPress to assist with the translation.

As of now out of approximately 1725 translations 1620 Translations are still pending.  This is a huge project which needs supports from many to make this a success.

Similarly we have previously seen Ubuntu localization project and Songbird translation couple of years back which had contributions from over 60 participants.
