FAQ

How can we give credits to translators?

We *will* add the 'translators' xml element back. This is still WIP.

How to prevent two people working at the same time on the same translation?

By default, when you start working on a translation, that translation is locked for 15 minutes. You can also take the lock manually. See upstream documentation.
