CROWDIN, OUR TRANSLATION PLATFORM

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

Yes! Crowdin’s online website works great with mobile platforms.

You don’t have to be fluent in your language since your work will always be proofreaded by a fluent translator. However, you have to be fluent in order to be rewarded for your work.

No worries! Crowdin is completely free for you.

Unfortunately, we are currently not looking for translators for your language. Please write us through the form below, and we will consider adding it.

Please don’t use machine-translators such as Google Translate. They’re never as accurate as human-translations are.

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. 
What we are most looking for when deciding about new volunteer-translators is consistency. It doesn’t matter how active you are in the first few days, if we never see you again after a week.

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


ALL ABOUT OUR PUBLIC SLACK WORKSPACE

Slack is a communication platform and works just like Discord! We have created a public Slack workspace for our translators. Stay in contact with other translators, receive fast assistance and much more! 

Read all about it here. See you on Slack!

To keep our Slack workspace clean and organized, we require every new member to complete the set-up process. This can easily be done by sending us your Crowdin username and the language(s) you speak on Slack. 

Still worried about how that works? Here’s a full step-to-step tutorial!

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

  • You were completely inactive on Crowdin for a long time.
  • You haven’t completed the set-up process in a given time.
  • Inappropriate behavior.

If your Slack account was deactivated, you should have received an e-mail with the full reasoning. If your Slack account was deactivated for one of the first two reasons, your Slack account can easily be re-activated by responding to the e-mail you have received.
