Registration and user profile

Registration

Everybody can browse projects, view translations or suggest translations by default. Only registered users are allowed to actually save changes, and are credited for every translation made.

You can register by following a few simple steps:

  1. Fill out the registration form with your credentials.

  2. Activate registration by following the link in the e-mail you receive.

  3. Optionally adjust your profile to choose which languages you know.

Dashboard

When you sign in, you will see an overview of projects and components, as well as their respective translation progression.

New in version 2.5.

Components of projects you are watching are shown by default, and cross-referenced with your preferred languages.

Hint

You can switch to different views using the navigation tabs.

The menu has these options:

  • Projects > Browse all projects in the main menu showing translation status for each project on the Weblate instance.

  • Selecting a language in the main menu Languages will show translation status of all projects, filtered by one of your primary languages.

  • Watched translations in the Dashboard 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 personal default dashboard view in the Preferences section of your user profile settings.

Note

When Weblate is configured for a single project using SINGLE_PROJECT in the settings.py file (see Configuration), the dashboard will not be shown, as the user will be redirected to a single project or component instead.

User profile

The user profile is accessible by clicking your user icon in the top-right of the top menu, then the Settings menu.

The user profile contains your preferences. Name and e-mail address is used in VCS commits, so keep this info accurate.

Note

All language selections only offer currently translated languages.

Hint

Request or add other languages you want to translate by clicking the button to make them available too.

Translated languages

Choose which languages you prefer to translate, and they will be offered on the main page of watched projects, so that you have easier access to these all translations in each of those languages.

Secondary languages

You can define which secondary languages are shown to you as a guide while translating. An example can be seen in the following image, where the Hebrew language is shown as secondarily:

Default dashboard view

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

Avatar

Avatar can be shown for each user (depending on ENABLE_AVATARS). These images are obtained using https://gravatar.com/.

Notifications

Subscribe to various notifications from the Subscriptions tab. Notifications for selected events on watched or administered projects will be sent to you per e-mail.

Some of the notifications are sent only for events in your languages (for example about new strings to translate), while some trigger at component level (for example merge errors). These two groups of notifications are visually separated in the settings.

You can toggle notifications for watched projects and administered projects and it can be further tweaked (or muted) per project and component. Visit the component page and select appropriate choice from the Watching menu.

Note

You will not receive notifications for your own actions.

Account

The Account tab lets you set up basic account details, connect various services you can use to sign in into Weblate, completely remove your account, or download your user data.

Note

The list of services depends on your Weblate configuration, but can be made to include popular sites such as GitLab, GitHub, Google, Facebook, or Bitbucket or other OAuth 2.0 providers.
