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

Note: Before requesting Proofreader permissions in CrowdIn please make sure that 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 team work 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, please include links to any projects you have previously translated.

  3. Your request to become a proofreader will be considered on the merits of your previous translations by GitLab team members or Core team members who are fluent in the language or current proofreaders.

    • When a request is made for the first proofreader for a language and there are no GitLab team members or Core team members who speak the language, we will request links to previous translation work in other communities or projects.
