Change Language

To change the language in absentify, click your profile picture in the top right hand corner and click Your preferences.

You'll notice that some of the languages are translated by the absentify community as well as AI translation tools, and not by the absentify team.

If you happen to see a mistake in the translation or have suggestions for improvement, please feel free to reach out so us. We'd love to hear your recommendations!

Fix Translation

If you find any translation mistakes, you can now correct them yourself!

To do this, you need to register with crowdin. To register, go to the crowdin website and click on the sign-up button. Once you've registered, select the language you'd like to correct from the sidebar.

To achieve this, click on the Focus menu (Ctrl + /) button on the left and go to the Language tab, then select the language you would like to correct from the sidebar.

After that, you can see all the files for the language by clicking on the "CALENDAR.JSON" button on the top. You can also search word for word.

To change the translation, click on the string you want to translate from the left sidebar. You can also search for specific words or phrases by clicking on the search button and entering the word or phrase. 

Afterwards, write the correct translation in the text field and click on the Save button.

If you add a translation that already exists in the file, you can upvote the existing translation instead of adding a new one. This will help ensure that the most accurate translation is used.

We are currently displaying a progress bar to show how close we are to having a complete translation. If you upvote everything that is written correctly, it will help us quickly reach our goal of 100%.

If you make more than 2000 changes (translation or upvotes), you will get 50% off the business license.

For example, if you translate 198 strings and 1676 words, and upvote 433 strings, your total contribution would be 2307, which is greater than 2000 then you will be eligible for the discount.

We would really appreciate your help in translating our website! If you are interested in using absentify in another language that is not currently supported, please contact our support here, and we will be happy to add it!
