What is this on the Crowdin website? It is a great online tool to manage all our translations. It is very easy to manage and edit online on all kinds of types of mobile platforms or on your personal computer.

Rules about the translation

To get a good quality of the translation and to get it uniform in all languages. First of all, you must follow the rules here below:

  • The trademark “Turn Off the Lights” may not be translated into other languages. (*Only Chinese translators may translate this text)
  • The first letters of the trademark must be all in the capital letters, and not the mid-word “the”.
  • You are free to translate, improve, and provide suggestions to improve this string in the comment sidebar. There is no compensation per translated word.
  • If the HTML syntax is the same as in the original English string. Don’t remove the <a href attribute.
    Example: <a href=””>Google Official Company website</a>
  • If you see a URL in the text, do not translate (the words inside) or change the link.
  • Furthermore, do not translate the web browser name into your own local language. Also, do not edit this trademark name. For Example the web browsers: Google Chrome, Safari, Opera, Firefox, Maxthon, Yandex web browser, and Microsoft Edge.
  • Finally, do not spread hate or threat to other Crowdin users. If we see this in our Turn Off the Lights project, we will take the necessary steps.

One last thing. Thank you so much for contributing and we really appreciate it!

Maintaining translations

Finally, on each +/-2,5 week, there is an update for all the Turn Off the Lights software platforms. The users of this software will get the latest translation updates.
