First steps


  • Create a Github account and verify your email adress

  • Now you are in Edit-Mode. At this moment you can write into the files.

Editing the files

At this point you've found a file you want to translate and opened the edit mode. Please be aware! Only edit between
Code:
<Text></Text>
When you are editing a file for the first time, type your name in the Contributors section.
Now go on translate the English sentences in your language
