Hello, future translator!
This topic will explain how you can help us translating Lifeboat into your language.
If you have any questions about how to become a translator or about our translation system in general, feel free to shoot us an e-mail via firstname.lastname@example.org or you can just direct-message me here on forums.
The first step is to join Crowdin! We have 2 Crowdin projects. One project with game-files (Game types, in-game announcements etc.) and the other project with non-game files (Website). You might have to create a Crowdin account before you can start translating. However, Crowdin is completely free for you!
If your language is already translated & proofreaded, you can just go over everything and make suggestions for better sentences if needed. If your language is already translated but not proofreaded yet, this means we would like you to vote on translation suggestions.
If your language is not fully translated yet, you can make a suggestion on a source string.
Becoming an official volunteer
We truly appreciate your help! If we notice that you seem to be really interested in translating Lifeboat and you already contributed a lot, we will ask you if you want to become a crew member. If you accept, we will invite you to our Slack team where we communicate. Your tasks will remain the same, but you would be an official volunteer for Lifeboat. You can see a list of our current volunteer translators here.
We also sometimes give away in-game products to translators who contributed a lot. Please be aware of the fact that we will check your translations. Machine-translating won’t do!
