What’s New With WordPress ?

Change-language-WordPress-4-after-installation Multilingual

With the WordPress 4.0 release earlier this year, internationalization was improved when users got the option to choose which language to enable when installing WordPress. The latest version extends this trend by including the same functionality in the WordPress admin panel under Settings -> General.

This means you can switch any WordPress installation from its default US English language to any other supported language at any time without having to change configuration files or run an updater. Considering non-English WordPress installations now outnumber their English counterparts, this is an important update that will ensure people all over the world can easily use WordPress.

-GOOGLE: Material design

We challenged ourselves to create a visual language for our users that synthesizes the classic principles of good design with the innovation and possibility of technology and science. This is material design. This spec is a living document that will be updated as we continue to develop the tenets and specifics of material design.

Beautiful and free fonts for all languages

Noto is Google’s font family that aims to support all the world’s languages. Its design goal is to achieve visual harmonization across languages. Noto fonts are under Apache License 2.0.
