When it comes to translations, we at AdGuard always heavily rely on volunteers.
Now we use Crowdin platform to manage translations of our products. So this is the place to go for all the people who want to contibute to AdGuard by translating any product(s) they are interested in.
If you want to be among volunteers who help us translate AdGuard, please read the following information to learn more about how to become our translator, as well as about the way we collaborate with them.
If you want to join AdGuard translators, first of all, go to Crowdin and sign up/sign in there.
Once you are logged in, head to our page. You will see a few AdGuard projects, each of them contains folders for different product strings.
Choose your language and you will see the list of available product folders.
You can start translating literally any product you like by choosing the respective folder.
Filter phrases that are not yet translated and start your translation history!
Suggest your version in the text box and save it.
If you don't agree with existing translations, you still can suggest your own versions. Also, you can up- and downvote suggestions made by other volunteers by clicking "plus" and "minus" buttons.
Besides, there is an opportunity to open translations in a Voting mode if you just want to rate translations.

As every honest and well-done work should be rewarded, volunteers who actively translate on Crowdin are eligible to request a free AdGuard license key.
To request a one-year license key you should translate at least 500 words ONLY in phrases that have not been translated before.
Just send us a request to firstname.lastname@example.org and you’ll get the license key as a token of our gratitude.
Besides, the most active translators may receive a Proofreader status in future, should they express such intention, and that promises even more good stuff :)
