Contributing to Weblate

There are dozens of ways to improve Weblate. You can choose the one you feel comfortable with, be it coding, graphics design, documentation, sponsorship, or an idea:

Translating Weblate

Weblate wird laufend mit Hilfe von Weblate selbst <>`_übersetzt. Helfen Sie mit, Weblate in so vielen Sprachen wie möglich verfügbar zu machen. Das bringt Weblate näher an seine Benutzer!

If you find a possible mistake in the source string, you can mark it with a comment in the Weblate editor. This way, it can be discussed and corrected. If you’re certain, you can also click on the link in the Source string location section and submit a PR with your correction.

Zur Weblate-Dokumentation beitragen

You are welcome to improve the documentation page of your choice. Do it easily by clicking the Edit on GitHub button in the top-right corner of the page.

Please respect these guidelines while writing:

  1. Don’t remove part of the documentation if it’s valid.

  2. Use clear and easily-understandable language. You are writing tech docs, not a poem. Not all docs readers are native speakers, be thoughtful.

  3. Don’t be afraid to ask if you are not certain. If you have to ask about some feature while editing, don’t change its docs before you have the answer. This means: You change or ask. Don’t do both at the same time.

  4. Verify your changes by performing described actions while following the docs.

  5. Send PR with changes in small chunks to make it easier and quicker to review and merge.

  6. If you want to rewrite and change the structure of a big article, do it in two steps:

    1. Rewrite

    2. Once the rewrite is reviewed, polished, and merged, change the structure of the paragraphs in another PR.


You can translate the docs.

Erweiterung der integrierten Sprachdefinitionen

The language definitions are in the weblate-language-data repository.

Sie können fehlende Sprachdefinitionen gerne in languages.csv ergänzen, andere Dateien werden aus dieser Datei generiert.


If you have an idea and not sure if it’s suitable for an issue, don’t worry. You can join the community in GitHub discussions.
