Twitter Translation Center: The new badging system
Mon, 05/14/2012 - 16:52
Twitter is now available in 28 languages, thanks in large part to our incredible community of translators and moderators. We appreciate their hard work to help make Twitter available around the world.
Next month, we’ll be making some changes to the way that badges are assigned to translators, and wanted to give a preview of what’s to come.
The goal of this new badging system is to recognize hard work and provide a better learning experience. Once you are ranked among the top 20% of your language’s translators, you’ll be awarded the Translator badge. Your badge will remain featured on your Twitter profile as long as you remain in this position. Just keep in mind that only approved votes and translations are counted towards a translator's rank. It’s never too late to improve your standing by submitting high-quality translations and voting for high-quality strings that get approved by our moderators in the Translation Center. When you get back to translating and improve your rank, you’ll see that the translator badge will once again be featured on your profile.
This new process will be effective on June 6, 2012. Until then, all you need to do is continue to submit great translations. Translators will be able to monitor where they stand right on their dashboard.
We are so appreciative of the excellent job our translator community is doing to make Twitter available around the world, in so many languages. If you have any questions we are ready to assist you in our forums.
