**Welcome to the translation project for publiclab.org! **
**The goal of this project** is to make Publiclab.org more genial and accessible to new and existing users and foster diversity.
**The final result** will be that publiclab.org can load in other languages according to what people have their own browser language preference set to.
**What we're doing together** is each contributing translations of the small bits of text that appear all around the website, like the sidebar, the header, and the footer.
**Check out the series of activities below to get involved, thanks!**
## Translation prompts
By clicking the button "Join this group", you enable small <i class="fa fa-globe"></i> prompts around the site, for text which are not yet translated into the language you've selected. Click them, and you'll be prompted to provide a translation. You will need a Transifex account (see below).
The people in this list have signed up to see these prompts and help translate the website:
## Activities for people who want to translate this website
### Publishing new translation texts to the website
To get new translations actually published on the website, we need to take a few steps, starting with opening a GitHub issue. See this example:
If it's a new language, we will also need to add it to the footer listing; please contact an admin for this.
