Structured Translation: How to assign an individual to a particular language of one project?

Asked by Job Diógenes Ribeiro Borges

We at Evergreen Open-ILS, are looking a way to change the current "Open" permissions for translations, to "Structured", but Dan Scot, our current admin, say that he can't assign one person to a Specific language of our project. He say, that he can only assign to a Team.

But, launchpad say "Structured: if your project's translation group has assigned an individual or team to a particular language, only that person or members of that team can review and accept translation strings for that language. Anyone can suggest a translation for those languages, though. For languages that aren't covered by a translation group, anyone can directly submit a translation."

The question is, "How to assign an individual to a particular language of our project (Evegreen Open-ILS)??"

Or we need to create a new team?

Hello there,

in order to be able to fully use the Structured permission for your project, if you want to assign the "admin" of a specific language to a single person, you need to create a new translation *group*, not a team, that will handle the translation of your project.
For more information on this last point, see:

Doing so, you will be able to administer the translation for your project, and all the other projects you will create on Launchpad.

For an idea of the already existing translation group in Launchpad, and how they are administered, see:
