Hi, @jakebolam , when you say Portuguese it's pt-pt (European Portuguese) ou pt-BR (Brazilian Portuguese)?

If it is Brazilian Portuguese, I can help too!

Let me know how could I do that, ok?

To approve translations (even your own), switch your view to proofreading

Yes that worked. Oh also just to be sure @Berkmann18 I saw some of the translations also translated the ID (Xpath) pretty sure I saw a issue that doing that causes a 404. Should the ID be translated or not?

Alright, in that case I'll also make sure none of the ID's are translated 👍 Thx @Berkmann18

@Berkmann18 the dutch translations are now 75% approved, I'll hopefully finish the rest in the weekend when I have time. I was wondering, if a proposed translation is not entirely (in context) correct. Should I suggest a correction? Or make a issue of it in Crowdin? And in regards to suggestions I made in Crowdin, should I approve those too, or just let those be?

@yannick1691 Amazing, that's great progress; keep it up 😄.
If the proposed translation isn't correct in the context (even if it partially is) then feel free to flag it and propose a more correct one and perhaps have a discussion with other translators if you think it will be useful/beneficial.
As for your own suggestions, feel free to approve them if you're confident that they're correct.

If any of you are proof-readers or recently translated page ids (in Korean, Polish, Portuguese, Russian or Chinese), could you please look at #187 (comment) and revert them to the English version.
If you are unable to do so, let me know of the page and the initial text and I'll fix it.

@960813 For those, I believe only proofreaders like (@dance2die for Korean) or admins like @jakebolam and myself can fix this.

@stefanfreitag That would be grand, feel free to do so.

@SNvMK Life has been complicated for some of us, so it's understandable.

@MrAugu Awesome, I'll try to get it published (something @jakebolam used to do but is no longer active in this project).
In the meantime, you could get someone to a proofreader to check and approve the rest of the unchecked suggestions.

Hello,

French is definitely a disaster, barely readable by a french speaker. Hope it was not translated by a human being otherwise I am being rude to that person, oops.

I see that some people offered to improve it in March, I don't know how that's going but I'm ok with translating some sections.

@lawrensylvan A fair amount of people helped while others were all talk and criticism and no action.
If you want to be in the former group then go ahead.
