There are multiple methods you can use to join a localization project in Crowdin.
If you already know the project name you’d like to join, you can use a Search projects field in the head menu on your profile page. Just type the project name in the Search projects field, and the system will show you a few of the top results.
Press Enter to check out more results that match your search query. This way, you’ll be redirected to the Advanced Search, where you also can use search filters like Source language, Translated into, and others to specify the desired scope of projects you’re looking for.
From the Advanced Search, you can switch to the Showcases page, where you can find project categories filled with popular projects. Scroll down to see the Popular This Month project list.
Another way to join a project in Crowdin is to use the invitation provided by the project owner or manager. It could be an email invitation like the following:
Alternatively, it could be a sharable link that might look similar to the following:
Click the Get Involved label in the email invitation or open the sharable link in a browser. As a result, you’ll be redirected to the project page in Crowdin. If you were logged into your Crowdin profile beforehand, you’d automatically join the project, or if not, you’d be asked to either sign up or log in.
To start translating the project, you’d like to participate in, follow these steps:
Some projects require a join request to be approved before you can start translating. To submit a request, click Join. In the appeared dialog, add some details on why you want to participate in that particular project.
If the project you’d like to join doesn’t contain your preferred target language or you have some questions related to its content, or you’d like to be promoted to a proofreader role, you can contact the project manager.
On the project page and click Contact next to the manager’s name.
