Translation Stats


The plugin adds a “Translation Stats” column to the plugin list screen in WordPress admin.

The translation stats are shown only for plugins that exist in and are prepared for localization.

If a plugin doesn’t have complete translation stats, you’ll see a notice with one of the reasons below:

  • Plugin not found on
  • Translation project not found on
  • The plugin is not properly prepared for localization

The color scheme of the translation stats bars is exactly same used in GlotPress for consistency with the translation experience in

This plugin is properly prepared for localization.


  • Translation Stats shown in WordPress plugins page
  • Translation Stats installed plugins list
  • Translation Stats settings tab
  • Translation Stats tools tab


What are the plugin subprojects?

  • Development – Translation of the Development version of the plugin
  • Development Readme – Readme of the Development version of the plugin page on
  • Stable – Translation of the Stable version of the plugin
  • Stable Readme – Readme of the Stable version of the plugin page on

How can I translate a plugin?

Should I translate both Stable and Development?

Since mid-April 2016, not only new strings but also edits are synced between dev and stable (both ways, only approved translations). When a plugin releases a new version all translations are copied from dev to stable. Read more…

How long does it take for a translation to become available?

Translations for the readme are published almost immediately.
The language pack for a plugin will be generated when 90% of the Stable (latest release) sub-project strings have been translated and approved.

I got to know this tool in WordCamp Lisbon contributor day and I must say it’s very useful. Not only as a contributor but also as a plugin developer. Good job!

Este plug-in me é muito útil porque eu trabalho com traduções para o WordPress e o plug-in me ajuda a perceber o que está defasado em nosso idioma. Além disso, é simples e prático. Bom trabalho, Pedro! This plugin is very useful to me in my work on WordPress translations. It helps me to visualize what is incomplete or outdated in my language. Moreover, it is simple and easy to use. Good job, Pedro!
