Most of the time, you will be requested to translate a phrase and that's all. But maybe for 30 strings or so, you'll have to keep some tokens called placeholders. Below are some examples with a translation from English into French:

Dear {Firstname} {Lastname},

Just copy paste {Firstname} and {Firstname} without translating them:

Cher {Firstname} {Lastname},

Another example with {StartDate}:

From {StartDate}

Just copy paste any {Token} and don't translate them.

Du {StartDate}

Sometimes, you'll have to indicate where are some words (it depends on the target language, but most of the time it is possible):

Request a *new leave*.

If possible, use the * character to indicate where is the translated string:

Faire une *nouvelle demande*.

Here, a new leave is translated into French by nouvelle demande.

What is the next step?

Post a message into the Google group. We will include your language into the next release.
