Tools to help you make your software local

User Tools


Language page

Only users with view rights for the language can access the language page. Server level permissions are used if no language specific permissions exist.

Overview tab

The Overview tab of the language page lists all the projects for which this language has been enabled. Project names link to the translation project (aka language/project pair) page not the the project page.

Note that any user with view rights for the language will be able to see all projects listed regardless of whether they have view permissions on the corresponding projects and translation projects.

For each project translation statistics are displayed, a summary of pending translation work (hover over the link and you tooltip listing how many words are untranslated and how many are fuzzy, clicking on the link takes to quick translate page for that translation project), the total amount of words in the translation project and the user who submitted the last translation with the time and date of that submission.

At the bottom there is the top contributors table for this particular language.

News tab

The News tab has the last news items related to this language, which includes alerts about new projects for which the language has been enabled and users selecting the language in their profile (indicating interest in joining the translation team).

Users with admin rights for the language will see a form where they can submit new news items for the language.

Permissions tab

Users with admin rights on the language will be able to use the “Permissions” tab to manage language level permissions or grant extra rights to some users.

Language permissions overrule server-wide permissions.

On the users drop down users who have added the language to their profile will be listed first under “Language Members”.
