Procedure and documentation about how to contribute to the Open Collective translations


{% hint style="info" %} We use Crowdin to manage all our translations. You can join and contribute on: {% endhint %}



Words between brackets are variables that meant to be replaced by dynamic values.

For example the string:

Hello {collectiveName}!

Will render as Hello Webpack! if the collective name is Webpack. You must never change the variable names.


select is a special command that let us render different texts conditionally. The base pattern is:

{myVariable, select, value1 {Rendered if myVariable=value1} other {Otherwise this}}

A classic example for that is the interval select:

{amount} {interval, select, month {monthly} year {yearly}}

Here interval is the variable with month and year as possible values. If amount is equal to $5 and interval to year, the template above will be rendered to:

$5 yearly

Here again, don't change the variable name or the select keyword, only the replaced strings (monthly and yearly if we take the example above).

You can’t perform that action at this time.
