FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is Crowdin? How do I use Crowdin?

Crowdin is an online website we use for our translations. Please see this link for a tutorial on how to use Crowdin.

What is Slack and how do I use it?

Slack is a communication platform. We have a public Slack workspace available to our translators.

You can join Slack through this link. You can also view this page for more information about how to use Slack.

Why was my Slack account deactivated?

If your Slack account was deactivated, it was due to one of these reasons:

  • You have made no contributions on Crowdin since 3 weeks.
  • You haven’t completed the set-up process.
  • You haven’t followed to our Slack rules.

You also received an e-mail with a proper reasoning. If you have a question regarding your Slack account, please contact us using the form below.

Is Crowdin free or do I have to pay to create an account?

No worries! Creating a Crowdin account is completely free for you.

My language isn’t listed on Crowdin!

Please write us through the form below, and we will consider adding it!

Can I just use a machine-translator?

Please don’t use machine-translators (Google Translator, Microsoft Translator etc.). You have to be completely fluent in your language to become a translator.

I’ve already translated a lot, but I wasn’t invited as an official volunteer yet!

We also check for the quality of your contributions. If we see that you contributed a lot, but made a lot of spelling mistakes or similar things, that might have lowered your chance.

My translations were suddenly removed but I don’t know why!

We review your contributions, and if it seems like that you’re using a machine-translator, we’re removing them. We usually send you a Crowdin direct-message if we decide to do so though.
