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.
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.

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.
