How to start translating?

Hello!

I claimed this task yesterday, but it is not in English. I can´t start translate it.
Help me, please!

Hi Leslie, I don’t see any claimed task on your dashboard and all the ‘Localizing the OpenWHO e-learning platform’ tasks have been claimed by other translators. I have moved your post here so that you can have a look at the tips at the top of the section.

Feel free to search for other tasks in your language combination. Let me know if you have any questions or problems :slight_smile:

Hi,
I have never received any emails on available tasks in my language pairs, but when I come here to the website I see that other people had already claimed them. Is it possible that I miss something on my profile or during my registration? Even in the task filter I cannot find “italian” among the target languages.
Thank you in advance to anyone who will reply to me.

Laura

Have you tried searching for tasks in your language pair? Watch this youtube video to know more :desktop_computer: (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=waGRDP_EZ7g&feature=youtu.be)

Hello there!
I claimed a task yesterday and I’m done with it. I watched a video of “how to submit a task” so I did exactly as what the video tells, but I couldn’t find the task I’ve translated in my “claimed tasks”. what should I do now?

Hi @Hind.Salah :slight_smile: are you referring to the task titled “Chunk 1 of Peach Almanac - Part 1”? I’ve just had a look and I can see this in your claimed tasks :star_struck: Make sure that the “Task Status” is set to “In Progress”.

Let me know if you still can’t see it :blush:

I have already translated, I’m done with it. How can i submit it??

@Hind.Salah to translate tasks with TWB, you need to use our CAT tool, Kató TM. These links will help you learn how to use Kató TM: video tutorial, FAQs, Do’s and Don’ts.

When you’ve complete the task, follow these instructions to submit the task :fast_forward:

If you haven’t already done so, have a look at our welcome pack for more information on getting started with us :dizzy:

I have watched this video already, and did exactly what it was said there, BUT I couldn’t find my translated task there !!! Where is my translation?? I spent the whole night translating this task and now I cant find my translation!! Could you PLEASE tell me where can I find my translation !!

Hi @Hind.Salah,
if you have already submitted a translation, you won’t be able to find it. The only way you can save it, is by pressing the botton of “download translation” that appears when you have ended your task at the top of the Kato TM.
If you go to your “claimed tasks” section, though, you could filter your task status to “complete” and see all the tasks that you have submitted so far, but not the actual translation. Tomorrow you will see the result of your translation thanks to the increased number of donated words on your profile. You might also receive feedback from a fellow translator in the next few days.
I really hope this helps. Best. L

Good evening, @Hind.Salah :first_quarter_moon_with_face:

In case you haven’t deleted your browser history, you may be able to download your translation. All you need to do is look :face_with_monocle: for the link to Kató TM, access it and download your translation. :white_check_mark:

But please don’t introduce any changes in Kató TM. :slight_smile:

I hope this helps.

Have a great weekend. :hibiscus: :leaves:

I am not sure if it was submitted, I went to “claimed tasks” and then to “complete” but I did not find anything! although I have finished the translation process. so what do you think?
I need to make sure if it was submitted ASAP.
