Dear @imran3may thanks for supporting us to translate the platform to Bengali language.
Here you can find the guide to start the translation Translating Online with the Web Editor | Transifex Documentation Please choose “djangojs” to start with.

Dear @arshad_hussain1, thanks for willing to participle and support us. we are asking volunteers to work with us at least 5 hours per month because at the beginning we don’t have any translated words to Bengali. However when this percentage is nearly complete, you don’t need to work unless we include new features/messages.
we measure the achievement per user according to the #words/sentences s/he translated. Hope I answered your question.
Let me know if you have any question.

Hello All,
Please add me to the Bengali Language group.

Welcome to the community, @irfan013! Thank you for showing interest to contribute to become a volunteer. For this, all you need to do is:

  • Create an account in Transifex.
  • Select organization as KoBoToolbox.
  • Join the desired language you wish to contribute to. In your case, it should be the Bengali language.

Thanks @Hadeelt, will start working this weekend. I may come up with questions as this is something new to me. Glab to be a part of this intiative.


If you ever need to translate to Filipino/Tagalog I can help.
