Creating and personalizing your Kató Community profile

Kató Community is our main platform for communication with translators, and translators can use it to network with their fellow translators as well. Once you create a Kató Platform profile, you’ll be able to log in to Kató Community. Learn how to register Kató Platform and how to log in.
Once you’re logged in, personalizing your Kató Community profile is very easy:

How can I add a profile picture? :camera_flash:

We’d love to put a face to our translators’ names! Simply go to your account (the circle in the top right corner), click on your name and then click on “preferences”.

From there you will be able to add a new profile picture.

You can also personalize your profile’s background or add information about yourself!:speaking_head:

Remember to save any changes once you’re done!

@Gloria, interesting features. I know that the best way to learn how to use them is to play with them, but could you explain what the “User Card” is? I assume it’s some section on a user profile page, but I don’t exactly where or what. Thanks!

Hi Nozomi! Great question :slight_smile: When you click on a user’s name connected to a message they’ve written, a small ‘card’ will pop up showing basic information. So the ‘user card background’ will be the background image of this little card. Hope this makes sense! :sunny:

@JoannaW
Thank you for your explanation! Card = a popup user profile. Got it!
And sorry for my delayed reply - I did not realize I had a reply to my post!

Hello, do I have to be a verified translator in order to access tasks on the platform

Hello @tehleel95 :slight_smile:
It depends on the task, some tasks require you to be a Verified translator, other tasks don’t.
I hope you find some interesting projects to work on! :star2:

Hello everybody,
I would like to change my username, but if I go to preferences I am able only to change the name not Username. Can anyone help me?
Thank you in advance :slight_smile:

Hi @AngelaG, I’ve moved your message to this thread which I think you might find helpful :slight_smile:

You should be able to change your username by going to settings and clicking on the pencil symbol :pencil2: next to your username.

Hi again Joanna :grinning: there is no pencil symbol next to my username but only next to the profile photo and the Name, but not the UserName!

@AngelaG Oh ok! Why don’t you let me know here what you want to change it to and I’ll change it for you :blush:
