Registration and user profile¶
While by default 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 by following a few simple steps:
- Fill out the registration form with your credentials
- Activate registration by following the link in the e-mail you receive
- Possibly adjust your profile to choose which languages you know
When you log in to Weblate, you will see an overview of projects and components as well as 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 navigation tabs.
The menu will show several options:
- Projects > Browse all projects in the main menu (or menu Tools > All projects in the Dashboard) will show translation status of all projects 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 default dashboard view in the Preferences section of your user profile settings.
The User profile is accessible by clicking your user icon in the far-right of the top menu, then the Settings menu.
User profile contains your preferences, name and e-mail. Name and e-mail are being used in VCS commits, so keep this information accurate.
All language selections offer only languages which are currently being translated. If you want to translate to another language, please request it first on the project you want to translate.
Choose here which languages you prefer to translate. These will be offered to you on the main page of watched projects so that you have easier access to these translations.
You can define secondary languages, which will be shown to you, while translating, together with the source language. Example can be seen on the following image, where Hebrew language is shown as secondary:
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.
You can subscribe to various notifications on Subscriptions tab. You will receive notifications for selected events on watched or administered projects.
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 per project and component. To configure (or mute) notifications per project or component, visit component page and select appropriate choice from the Watching menu.
You will not receive notifications for actions you’ve done.
On the Account tab you can configure basic aspects of your account, connect various services which you can use to login into Weblate, completely remove your account or download your user data.
List of services depends on Weblate configuration, but can include popular sites such as Google, Facebook, GitHub or Bitbucket.
