Support » Plugin: User Role Editor » contribute to translation

  • Hi, I’ve been using this plugin and would like to help to translate it into Chinese. I went to translate.wordpress.org and found that there have already been many people trying to help translating. Most of the texts have been translated into Chinese for years, but users can’t see the translations because they all sit in the waiting area, waiting to be approved! Seems like no one is moderating. I’m afraid this is quite discouraging for people trying to help. Can you do something about it?

    Thanks for your desire to help.

    Do you have experience with translate.wordpress.org? Who are the moderators there?

    How can I moderate something in other language (even if have enough permissions) if I understand nothing except Russian and English?

    Yui

    You can make a request (tagged: #editor-request) with mentioning locale names
    at https://make.wordpress.org/polyglots

    I don’t have much experience with translate.wordpress.org, either. Don’t knowing the target language is indeed a problem and I don’t know what’s the best approach.
    Personally I guess I would just trust the local translators and approve anything. It’s not possible for plugin developer themselves to know all languages in the world. If something is translated wrongly, I’m sure people will make editing suggestions.
    I just checked again and on https://make.wordpress.org/polyglots/teams/?locale=zh_CN there lists some translation editors. Seems that you can contact them and ask them to add someone as your plugin’s translator.

    I have a small plugin of myself and I just tried to do some translation for my plugin on translate.wordpress.org and it turns out that I don’t have the permission to approve. As I said, I’m new to translate.wordpress.org and don’t know how it works. 😅 Seems that only the translation team has the permission. Plugin authors don’t.
    After some digging, (thanks @fierevere ) I found this: https://make.wordpress.org/polyglots/tag/editor-requests/. Plugin authors can post on the page to ask the team to nominate project translation editor (who can approve translation suggestions). There are already many requests, which could be used as examples I guess.
    I’ll make a request for my plugin. @shinephp maybe you could make a request, too? And you can request for several languages in one post. Last time I checked out, many other languages also have unapproved translations for your plugin (your plugin is widely used and loved 😊).

    Hi, Vladimir Garagulia (@shinephp)
    Just letting you know that I tried posting on https://make.wordpress.org/polyglots/tag/editor-requests/ with a request to nominate a translation editor for my plugin and it worked. 😊
