Quote from: Hristo on May 05, 2017, 05:39:00 PMI always wondered why not make that translation tool open to anyone who has say 5 or 10 posts?! I guess you are afraid that it could be abused?Statcounter has a site translation tool that is open for the members. That way anyone in the mood can translate a line or more. Then a moderator only has to approve or reject that translation. That is how it works past 3 or 4 years. Much more simpler than what we have here - no applications, no strings attached ("that you can spend a significant amount of time on translating").Now, despite that their system is much more open, still the translations are going very slowly. I only can imagine what is the situation here.

Some of them, usually the most active ones, will attract your attention. You can invite them to join the team as mods if language X needs such. The motivated ones will accept the rest will prefer simply to translate now and then a few lines. That is exactly how statcounter acts. I fail to see how that will lower the quality.
