Policy for adding and removing translations

Our community contributes to Metabase translations on our POEditor project. If you’d like to help make Metabase available in a language you’re fluent in, we’d love your help!

For a new translation to be added to Metabase, it must reach 100%. Once it does, we add it in the next major or minor release of Metabase. All existing translations in Metabase must stay at 100% to continue being included in the next major version of Metabase. This rule ensures that no one encounters a confusing mishmash of English and another language when using Metabase.

We understand that this is a high bar, so we commit to making sure that before each major release, any additions or changes to text in the product are completed at least 10 calendar days before the release ships, at which point we notify all translators that a new release will be happening soon.

Note that while we only remove languages in major releases, we are happy to add them back for minor releases, so it’s always a good time to jump in and start translating.
