Ability to see contributors of a project

Description

Now that plugins and themes are starting to become translatable by everyone, the need arises for developers to appoint translations editors for their plugins. This linked post shows that it is quite hard to choose people, especially because there is no way to see who actually has already contributed to your project.

In this use case it would actually also make sense to see the amount of translation work each user has done--you'd possibly rather ask someone who has done a whole bunch of translations to be an editor, than someone who has just contributed a single tranlation.

Maybe it would make sense to spin this overview more as a guide page for the developer (and hence only accessible to them) on "How to announce translation editors for your plugin", i.e. include some guidelines like "please ask this person personally before you ask to appoint them".

This limited visibility would address potential performance problems if these stats are slow to fetch.

I'd like to avoid any type of rating tables because quality over quantity. Grouping contributors by locale which have contributed a translation (which wasn't rejected) in the last 12 months sounds like a MVP here.

On second thought, should this be displayed on the project page of a locale (https://translate.wordpress.org/locale/ar/default/wp-plugins/akismet) instead? Because this data would be helpful for other translators too if we're going to display current translation editors. Example from Transifex: https://www.transifex.com/woothemes/teams/7662/ar/

I added the part that could be seen as "rating" mainly to address the concern that you might want filter the list by people who have only contributed in the last 12 months, for example when you want to ask them if they could help with more translations.

Maybe this feature shouldn't be exposed in that way, though, and just be available for a possible future notification feature.

I agree that the list would be useful on the project page itself, I'll try that in the next iteration.

I wonder if it could be useful to add the translation editors to the contributor list on the locale project page. Right now, even if the translation editor is the only active translator on a project locale, they won't appear in the contributor list at all.

An alternative would be to merge the 2 columns into one "Contributor list", and add a special style to the translation editor rows.

In addition to jeherve's suggestions, I think it's useful if:

As someone who is looking for contributors to promote as PTEs, I want to know if there is any active GTE (thus I can skip the request).

Hello,

Right now on project pages(e.g. https://translate.wordpress.org/locale/tr/default/wp-plugins/buddypress) some stats are displaying for contributers but not for editors. Could you please make a change to display same stats for editos.

Some of you may think that displaying stats are(should) not that important for the team and i'm agree with you but on the other hand some of us (like me) translating commercial themes/plugins/sites as a freelancer to earn money. Showing some stats to employer as a proof reliability from official WP sites results a very biiiig plus.

Consider as, theme/plugin authors has a list of their projects on their profile but why not there is nothing something similar for translators?

Replying to Nao:

  • Active GTE is marked

As someone who is looking for contributors to promote as PTEs, I want to know if there is any active GTE (thus I can skip the request).

How would you define an active or contributing translator, though?
