Documentation on how to translate software with POEditor

If you want to allow people to join the translation of your project by themselves, you can choose to make it public. This way, anyone interested in your software will be able to contribute to its translation.

1. Set public access to crowdsource translation

Go to your project and click on Project Settings, then select Yes for Public Project in Advanced Settings.

Set project as public (Project Settings) - POEditor localization tool

2. Share the self-enrolment page with your crowd

Your public translation project will have an individual join page on POEditor which people can access to self-enroll. You can find the join page link in Project Settings or on your project page, under the available languages list.

Note that you can also moderate your outside contributors from Project Settings by selecting Yes for the New Contributors Require Moderation option.

Working with public projects will help you use community translation to add more languages to your app, website, theme or software.
