Open Collective - How to contribute to translations?

Adding a new language

To ask for a language to be added on Crowdin, feel free to open a discussion. We always accept these requests, but please note that inactive languages will often be removed if there's no contribution.

Format

Variables

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

select is a special command that lets 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).
