Proofread Translations

Most translations are contributed, reviewed, and accepted by the community. We are very appreciative of the work done by translators and proofreaders!


Become a proofreader

Before requesting proofreader permissions in Crowdin, be sure you have a history of contributing translations to the GitLab project.

  1. Contribute translations to GitLab. See instructions for translating GitLab.

    Translating GitLab is a community effort that requires teamwork and attention to detail. Proofreaders play an important role helping new contributors, and ensuring the consistency and quality of translations. Your conduct and contributions as a translator should reflect this before requesting to be a proofreader.

  2. Request proofreader permissions by opening a merge request to add yourself to the list of proofreaders.

    Open the source file and click Edit.

    Add your language in alphabetical order and add yourself to the list, including:

    • Name
    • Link to your GitLab profile
    • Link to your Crowdin profile

    In the merge request description, include links to any projects you have previously translated.

  3. GitLab team members, Core team members, or current proofreaders fluent in the language consider your request to become a proofreader based on the merits of your previous translations.

    • If you request to become the first proofreader for a language and there are no GitLab or Core team members who speak that language, we request links to previous translation work in other communities or projects.
