Transifex Reviewers: Each language team has at least one community Reviewer. Reviewers are experienced with Transifex and knowledgeable about Discogs. They are often good people to turn to when you have a language-specific question. Reviewers often add translations, but also have the ability to mark a translation as “Reviewed”. They can also “Unreview” and change a previously utilized translation. Click into your language from the Transifex Team page to see a list of Reviewers.
