Weblate is a free web-based translation tool with tight version control integration. It features a simple and clean user interface, propagation of translations across components, quality checks and automatic linking to source files.


Project goals

Web based translation with tight git integration supporting a wide range of file formats, makes it easy for translators to contribute.

The translations should be kept within the same repository as the source code and the translation process should closely follow development.

There is no plan in heavy conflict resolution as these should be primarily handled on the git side.

Project name

The project's name is a portmanteau of words web and translate.
