Registration and user profile

Registration

While everybody can browse projects, view translations or suggest them, only registered users are allowed to actually save changes and are credited for every translation made.

You can register following two simple steps:

  1. Fill out the registration form with your credentials
  2. Activate registration by following in email you receive
  3. Possibly adjust your profile to choose which languages you know

Dashboard

When you log in to Weblate, you will see an overview of projects and components and their translation progress.

New in version 2.5.

By default, this will show the components of projects you are watching, cross-referenced with your preferred languages. You can switch to different views using the drop-down menu on the highlighted button.

The drop-down will have several options:

  • All projects will show translation status of all projects on the Weblate instance.
  • Your languages will show translation status of all projects, filtered by your primary languages.
  • Watched will show translation status of only those projects you are watching, filtered by your primary languages.

In addition, the drop-down can also show any number of component lists, sets of project components preconfigured by the Weblate administrator, see Component Lists.

You can configure your preferred view in the Preferences section of your user profile settings.

User profile

User profile contains your preferences, name and email. Name and email are being used in VCS commits, so keep this information accurate.

Note

All language selections offers only languages which are currently being translated. If you want to translate to other language, please request it first on the project you want to translate.

Translated languages

Choose here which languages you prefer to translate. These will be offered to you on main page to have easier access to translations.

Secondary languages

Default dashboard view

On the Preferences tab, you can pick which of the available dashboard views will be displayed by default. If you pick Component list, you have to select which component list will be displayed from the Default component list drop-down.

Subscriptions

You can subscribe to various notifications on Subscriptions tab. You will receive notifications for selected events on chosen projects for languages you have indicated for translation (see above).

If you are an owner of some project, you will always receive some important notifications, like merge failures or new language requests.

Note

You will not receive notifications for actions you’ve done.
