SMF moves to a new translation platform: switching to Crowdin

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?

@rjen

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.

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).

Crowdin seems nice! I tested it by translating many strings already.

1) Me too, I see strings that are already translated in previous versions, at least I think so... Maybe the variable names are different, I didn't check.
2) Can you add Google Translate together with the TM and MT suggestions? Sometimes there are no suggestions, especially in big strings, and I am lazy to type the whole translation, I prefer to copy/paste/edit.
3) Sometimes while I am translating a file Crowdin asks me to login again (I was not inactive)

SMF_2-1_NEXT refers to current GitHub code.

The main branch SMF_2-1 is tied to the latest release - RC4.

I.e., we can now prepare translations for the upcoming release, instead of waiting until after each release, as in the past.
Address the process rather than the outcome.  Then, the outcome becomes more likely.   - Fripp

Many thanks for Info. Then I can get started there. I have translated the current commit for the German "Sie".
