Internationalisation in Block Themes.pptx

In this session, we will take a brief look at what Internationalisation (or i18n) in themes means, as well as cover the common Internationalisation functions available in WordPress, and how to use them. We'll then create a blank block theme, and then take a look at the strings that we might need to make translation ready, as well as how to achieve this.
