Translation FAQ

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 proofread by a fluent translator. However, you have to be fluent in order to be rewarded for your work.
No – Crowdin is completely free for you to use.
Unfortunately, that means we are currently not looking to translate that language. Please write to us through the form below and we will consider adding it.
Please don’t use computer-aided translators (e.g. Google Translate). They’re never as accurate as human translations.
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 all contributions – if it seems like that you’re using a machine translator, then they’ll be removed. You will always receive a Crowdin direct message if that action is taken.

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. This allows you to stay in contact with other translators, receive fast assistance, and much more!
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-by-step tutorial.
If your Slack account got deactivated, it could be because of the following:
  • – You were inactive on Crowdin for a long time.
  • – You haven’t completed the setup process in a suitable time frame.
  • – Inappropriate behaviour (i.e. breaking the rules).
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.
