Later today weblate will be upgraded to the latest version, 2.18. This will enable the ability to approve individual translations. This won’t be visible right away and the interface will stay the same.
The general idea is simple:
- When a new string needs translation, anyone can translate and save
- After people (let’s call them reviewers) with the approval permission decide the translation is final, they click on the new Approve button.
- When a translation is Approved, people who do not have the approval permission can no longer modify the translation. They can however suggest edits.
If a reviewer is willing to experiment with this new feature, please speak up and you will be granted permission to approve a string.
