Oh My, DradCast! (also Martinis)
Very happy to see my WooThemes post being discussed on the DradCast (jump to 46:05, but you should watch the whole thing. “Rap battle”, and I’ll say no more), and glad to see the i18n discussion reaching the United States on a larger stage.
I think Dre an Brad may have confused “.pot is mandatory” with “we’re required to supply translations”, though. Just to be clear: the .pot is, if not required, at least strongly recommended, (remember that that file is simply a list of original strings in English, and very easy to generate, if your code is correct), and no, you’re not required to supply any translations. We do that, free :)
