    Hi all, you'll notice that there are a lot of new untranslated strings that were just added to Transifex. Styles and Genres are finally translatable! Feel free to discuss here or in one of the general Database forums if you get stuck on how to translate a style, or if a style should even be translated.
    Thanks for all of your help!

    Hi kkawamura!

    Thank you so much for noticing that incorrect translation!

    Here is the string that needs to be updated:

    Sorry, I'm not fluent in Japanese... here's my best attempt:

    Hi Kirsten,

    Thank you for following the issue! I have corrected the translation : https://www.transifex.com/discogs-1/discogs-i18n/translate/#ja/$/50451798?tags=MED

    「Med」の誤訳についてご指摘いただきありがとうございました。当方で「医学」→「平均」へ変更致しました。ご確認ください: https://www.transifex.com/discogs-1/discogs-i18n/translate/#ja/$/50451798?tags=MED

    1) まずTransifexにサインインした後「discogs-i18n」ページ下部の言語選択箇所で「Japanese (ja)」右側の「翻訳」ボタンをクリックしてください。
    2) すると「en」、「en-js」という二つの項目が現れます。どちらもオリジナルから日本語への翻訳ページですが、まずは「en」をお選びいただき画面左側の検索スペースを一度クリックします。英語で「Text, Translation text...」などと呼び起こしたい語の種類が表示されますので、英語の原文から探したい場合には「Text」を選択後、検索スペースにに「Med」、日本語訳から探したい場合は「Translation text」を選択後、検索スペースに「医学」などと入力してenterキーを押すと該当の語を含む原文または翻訳リストが表示されます。その中から最も適したものを選んで、「提案」または「コメント」欄から正しい翻訳または翻訳の誤りをお知らせ下さい。

    Hey all,

    We're currently sending our help documents over to Transifex to get them translated into German, Italian, French, Japanese and Spanish.

    We just got started with one article -"How Do I Activate My Account?" - and are still missing the Japanese one.

    Would you mind helping with the translation of this one?

    Here the direct link:

    Thanks a lot for all your help! It's very much appreciated!

    Hi I joined

    Hi! Maybe I missed it, but I don't see your request to join in Transifex yet.

    Did you click the Translate or "「Discogs.com Localization」の翻訳" button yet?
    You can find it here: https://www.transifex.com/discogs-1/discogs-i18n/dashboard/

    Feel free to message me if you have questions. Thanks!

    Awesome, I'm seeing your request now to join the Japanese Community Translation Team now. I just approved your request to join the Japanese team.

    If you want some info about how to get started with Transifex, we have some guidance in Japanese here:

    Or this document from Transifex might help:

    Please let me or BoSound know if you want any help getting started with adding translations. Thanks! :)

    Hello Japanese Translation Team!

    I'm going to make some improvements for our Community Translation Team in the coming months, and I would love to hear your feedback in this survey:
    Discogs Community Translation Team Survey

    The survey is only a few questions long and should only take a few minutes to complete. I'll use the feedback to help guide improvements to the translator onboarding process. The survey is anonymous, so feel free to pass along any and all feedback. Thank you!!! :)

    Hey all, just a quick update:

    There are many places on the website where we "recycle" translations for certain words or phrases. For example, we don't ask you to translate "Forum" for each place it's used on the website - we simply use the same translation across the website. However, occasionally that doesn't work. There are several English homonyms (words that have the same spelling, but different meaning) for which we incorrectly reuse the same translation across the website.

    One example, which has been an issue for a long time, is "Credits". On Discogs, "Credits" might relate to Artist "Credits" or Marketplace "Credits". Obviously, in most languages, two different translations are needed. But until recently we were using the same translation for both. But, as of today, we have a better way of separating out these strings! Wahooo!

    • Here is the string that relates to Marketplace Billing "Credits".

    • Here is the string that relates to Artist "Credits".

    Will someone please check those two strings to make sure they are translated correctly? The Transifex "Translation Memory" filled in a translation for the new string already, but I'm not certain it's correct.

    And please let me know if you run across other strings that are incorrectly using the same translation in multiple places. Thanks all!

    Hello again!

    We've separated more homonym strings that may need different translations.

    I've added String Instructions for all of these newly separated strings: https://www.transifex.com/discogs-1/discogs-i18n/translate/#en/$/175859639?q=tags%3AContext_Added

    You'll notice that most of those strings have translations filled in by "DiscogsStaff"... but that really just means those translations were populated by our Translation Memory. Many of those translations are likely wrong. So if you have time, please take a look! Thanks!

    Hello Japanese Translation Team!

    Our developers have added translation tags to several areas of the website that were missing translations previously.

    So there are many new strings that need translations. Any help you can provide with translations would be much appreciated: https://www.transifex.com/discogs-1/discogs-i18n/translate/#ja/$/179022108?q=translated%3Ano

    We also separated out a few strings related to feedback. Since "Feedback" is both plural and singular in English, the plural and singular strings were combined previously. Here are the related strings that might need to be corrected:
    (Note that our Transifex "Translation Memory" just filled in the previously used translation. So although there are translations filled in, it's likely that two of those translations are incorrect.)

    Remember newly provided translations aren't added to the website until the resource gets to 100% translated and reviewed, so let's try to get those translations complete. Thanks everyone!
