For many years now phpList is using the Pootle software for translations and so far the community has done an excellent job of adapting phpList into their language, with 17 languages close to fully supported. Unfortunately maintenance for Pootle has been dropped by the Pootle developers, and this will cause trouble in the future without moving to a new platform.
Therefore we are considering to switch to Weblate which is designed as a replacement for Pootle. So far Weblate is being used by many open source projects.
An installation of Weblate for phpList translation has been set up and can be found here: https://weblate.phplist.com/. If you already had an account for Pootle you are lucky because you can use the same credentials for Weblate.
Take a look and let us know how Weblate feels or if you’ve used it in the past. It has very similar features to Pootle and should feel familiar.
Because it takes considerable effort to import user accounts and permissions from Pootle to Weblate, I would like to avoid a long period of both services running together. Therefore we are aiming to switch translate.phplist.org over to Weblate on Thursday or Friday of this week, depending on your feedback.
