App Strings Translation Guidelines
Remember Musixmatch in English is written in a friendly, fresh and casual style.
You do not need to translate literally or word-for-word, but where possible please try to preserve a friendly tone with your translation.
2. Proper Names
Proper names or product names do not need to be translated.
i.e. "LyricsCard" and "FloatingLyrics".
Some of the strings that you will be translating contain placeholders (pieces of text that will automatically be replaced with other pieces of text).
What do placeholders look like?
Placeholders are anticipated by %.
The following is an example of string containing a placeholder:
How do I handle placeholders in my translation?
All placeholders in a string should not be modified.
Translating Musixmatch is a collaborative effort – several translators may work on the same language. To help ensure a consistent and high-quality translation for each language, we encourage you to correct mistakes or offer improved translations.
You can do this by choosing to edit existing translations or voting for the existing one.
