Guide

As of today, 2 of the translation strings need attention. This is in addition to the 6 strings changed last week. This is the string freeze, that is the last update for the 0.8.0 release scheduled May 25th, 2018. No strings will change before the release.

There are a number of languages that are in progress and candidate to be released in a week from now. If you are fluent in one of the languages that are in progress, feel free to jump in.

Reviewers from localizationlab are kindly reminded that they can Approve a string, meaning translators can only suggest modifications but cannot modify the translated string. This helps make sure the strings they reviewed are not changed unexpectedly right before the release. See the documentation for more information about this feature. When a language is fully reviewed, the progress bar will show all blue. Translations that need approval show in green.

If you notice something odd in the strings marked Need review, this is not a bug and there are good reasons for this to happen and nothing we can do to improve that. This is rare though and you can just provide the correct translation and all will be good. If you think the problem you’re seeing is different, please followup on that thread in the forum.

On the weblate language page, you will see that some strings need review (they were modified) and others are new and not translated yet.

You can click on the red line and will be redirected to a page where you can see how the english string was updated.

If you think the translation is still good and does not require any update, you can check the Approved button and then Save to move to the next string. Otherwise you can modify the string, check the Approved button and Save.

The good news is that all translations are 100%, this is great and we will prepare the release with what is there. In Dutch and Norwegian a few strings are not reviewed yet. It means that if last minutes changes are made, we will have to propose a merge at the last minute. Hopefully that won’t happen, fingers crossed :slight_smile: But even if it does, we will manage.
