Recently, we got locale integrated with the schema system, which is a huge win for us. Now people can translate shipped configuration (but not yet custom configuration). We also made strides in converting the config translation module proposed for core to latest routing and form standards. We need reviewers on that issue and support to get into core! We also recently got transliteration for machine names into core! The first UI exposure of transliterations!
Now we need people to help review making node properties multilingual, so you can translate titles, and maintain publication status/authors per language. We are also working to make menus multilingual in https://drupal.org/node/1966298 and https://drupal.org/node/1945226.
These are amazing things, and we have a lot to be proud of that we are here, however, we still want to build more on these patches. Migration paths, tools for localize.drupal.org, more transliteration integrations, and so on. So we are not close to done yet. We have tasks for all kinds of interests on all kinds of difficulty levels. All help is welcome!
See you all there! This is the last meeting before DrupalCon Portland's huge onsite sprint!
Meetings are every other week at the same time on Wednesdays. Check out http://www.drupal8multilingual.org/events for the calendar of upcoming meetings.
