Yes, exactly, as change in source string requires action/update for each language :)

That's good to know, if you find anything else we're here to help.

Thanks for doing the great work @rjen! :)

Currently, the situation is more or less like so:
[...]
- the first translation from accepted translators (that's most of you) will be auto-approved
[...]
- once one translation for a string has been approved, future suggestions for that string have to be manually approved

Looking into the crowdin overview, almost no languages has a significant portion of approved words.
For Norwegian it is stuck on 0% as for many other languages.  I have no obvious way of approving anything, and download as ZIP from within Crowdin only lists strings that were translated in LE and uploaded when we started using it...

Is there a simple fix?

For Dutch I am now granted Proofreader rights. Proofreaders can approve the translations

There has not been any auto approval for as far as I know...

Even though translation is not approved - it will be included in exported file. Approval is just one additional step to ensure translation quality where we have bigger translation teams with proofreaders.

Took you long enough. :P I remember you silently mentioning this back in May. Congratulations on the move. Using the LE was a truly painful experience sometimes. I hope this is a significant improvement. Well, as much as it can be.

Good, but then why are all the files in the downloaded archive given a date of Feb 26th instead of the date it was translated or changed?
Is it a bug?

I just tried downloading and took a random sample:

1) Download from https://download.simplemachines.org/index.php?thanks;filename=smf_2-1-rc3_norwegian.zip
Dates within file :  March 30 2021.
Example untranslated:  $txt['mc_warning_template_body_default']  in moderationcenter.norwegian.php  (it has english text in file)

2) Manual download from within Crowdin today using the "download" function -- shortcut <ctrl>S:
Dates within file :  Feb 26 2021.
Example untranslated:  $txt['mc_warning_template_body_default']  in moderationcenter.norwegian.php (it has english text in file)

3) Actual translation in Crowdin:
$txt['mc_warning_template_body_default']  in moderationcenter.norwegian.php   26 days ago today. All OK, translated to Norwegian but not marked as approved.
Code: [Select]
{MEMBER},\n\nDu har mottatt en advarsel for upassende aktivitet. Vennligst slutt med det og følg forumreglene ellers vil vi måtte ta ytterligere tiltak. \n\n{REGARDS}
I seem not to find any way of actually getting to the translated files neither within Crowdin nor in the download area.
Seeing them on screen in the crowdin editor is of course slightly satisfying, but not what I was hoping for.

I just downloaded the language pack of the URL you put in 1). The file you say, ModerationCenter.norwegian.php, has today's date (01/05/2021) and the string you mention appears translated, as you state in 3).

Yes!
Now, it seems OK. Maybe some sort of delay
