We are currently letting a translation agency translate and proofread Discourse in the following languages:
- Chinese Simplified
- Portuguese (Brazilian)
That’s why crowdsourcing of translations has been temporarily disabled for those languages in the Discourse (core) project on Crowdin. It’s still possible to translate plugins for all languages.
We are doing this in order to increase the quality and consistency of translations. That being said, it’s an experiment. We intentionally selected mostly languages where we have native speakers within the team. So, rest assured, we will be keeping an eye on the translations.
Yes, we intend to re-enable translation for all languages after the translation agency finishes their work. We might disable it again shortly before each release of a stable version, but all of this is subject to change.
Only the core project is currently being translated by a translation agency. The plugins are still available for translation and we appreciate your help with that.
We value your feedback. Please create a topic in #dev:translations and explain your complaint with as many examples as possible. We will forward your feedback to the translation agency.
