Documentation Helpscreen Team (JDocs)

The Documentation Helpscreen Team is a sub-team of the official Joomla! Documentation™ Working Group. The aim of this sub-team is to update and maintain the help screens, in order to reflect the latest version of Joomla. As soon as Help Screens are updated, they will be marked for translation to be available for most.

en-GB User Interface Text Team

The official language of Joomla is en-GB and yet the actual strings we use have been created, over 10 years, many by people who are not native en-GB speakers. Establish official style guidelines for writing en-GB strings. Ensure consistency throughout Joomla. Provide translation teams with an easy framework and guidelines to create their own style guides. The style guide is a living document that may be updated and added to over time as the need arises. The style guide will be maintained by native en-GB speakers.
