Internationalizing and localizing block based plugins is an important stage in the creation of WordPress blocks that can be used worldwide. Once it’s been internationalized a plugin can be delivered in any locale that WordPress supports; over 200 at the last count.
In this post I summarize the process I use to automatically perform internationalization ( i18n ), translation and localization ( l10n ) of my block based WordPress plugins from US English to UK English and the bbboing language.
Using easy to use translation tools, internationalized plugins can be made available in many other languages.

I’ve been updating my blocks to support the Widget block editor in WordPress 5.8. oik-magnetic-poetry now allows you to choose the text colour for each magnet and the background colour/gradient of the whole block.
