How can you become a Waze translator?

How can you become a Waze translator?

Long gone are the days of Excel spreadsheets and purely manual workflow!

To accommodate Waze's growth and its rise in international users, we've switched over to tool called "Transifex," which offers way better user-friendly features for translators.

To join our translation teams, and translate Waze in your native language, please do the following:

1. Open the Tansifex link https://www.transifex.com/tour/formanager/ and sign in free as a translator. We recommend using your "Waze" credentials as your "Transifex" user name.

2. Send a "Join Team" request to Waze Active Project using the following links:

https://www.transifex.com/projects/p/wa ... -projects/
https://www.transifex.com/projects/p/waze-w_p/

3. After it will be approved you can start and help us translate Waze in your native language!

Hope to see soon on the Waze Translaton Team!

Thank's
Orit

Is it possible to indicate how many man hours it would take to translate to a new language. Assuming the translator is fluent in both languages.

There are currently 2047 strings for the client, translation is one thing but checking if the text fits the UI/boxes/screen is another thing. I don't know how many hours i've spend already.
There are strings that belong to Android and some to iOS. It takes hours to get an overview.

I just joined the spanish localizers team... I know my language is supported now, but I want to help to improve the wikki, the app and many places that need to be translated yet.

Best,
Not te try to force anything on you, but maybe you should consider working on Spanish (Latin America) instead of "Spanish" because that one is meant for people living in Spain. As such, the language which theoretically is meant for you is " spanish (latin america)"... The wiki doesn't have any distinction but the client and website do.

Thanks and best,
I should mention that it's best to start at your country forum since there might already be some discussion regarding the translation. You can find CR in the Latin America section.
