Not too long ago, we talked about a list maintained by XDA Senior Member Benkxda aimed at getting those who need app translation services in contact with willing volunteers in the forums. After all, as cool as Google Translate is, a context-aware human translation is always better than machine translation.
But let’s face it; as time goes, not every volunteer can continue devoting so much time to translation. Thankfully, Benkxda has been keeping the list updated, culling out inactive members , as well as adding a few new faces and languages to the mix. Additionally, a list of former translators is included. So if you need translation help from a user who used to offer his or her services and is now on vacation, you may want to try asking really, really nicely. Who knows what will happen?
Just as before, developers should create their own thread with intentions to translate their application and link to it from Benkxda’s translation services thread. This should only be done once the application is nearly complete in order to prevent having to ask for additional translations down the line when new features are added or existing features are modified.
Head over to the translation services thread to get started._________
