How to request

Users may apply for translation adminship at Wikifunctions:Requests for user groups#Translation administrator.


To successfully request the translation administrator user group on Wikifunctions, a user must complete the following:


Once a request is closed as successful, a request should be posted at Steward requests/Permissions#Miscellaneous requests. A steward will then assign the permission, if the granted group is temporary, the permission will be automatically removed without notice after the term expires. If this group term needs to be extended, start a new discussion in advance of expiration.

Administrators do not need to undergo another discussion to become translation administrators; they can self-grant the rights to their account if necessary. Temporary administrators are not allowed to self-grant permanent translation administrator rights.

The translationadmin user group gives users the technical ability to:

  • Change page language (pagelang)
  • Enable two-factor authentication (oathauth-enable)
  • Import offline translations (translate-import)
  • Manage message groups (translate-manage)
