Translation level badges

  • Platinum badge Platinum Translator
  • Gold badge Gold Translator
  • Silver badge silver Translator
  • Bronze badge bronze Translator

The translation level is calculated according to multiple parameters. To get the first rank (bronze translator) the translator needs to translate at least 10000 words. For badges higher than Bronze the number of words considered is the amount of words translated in the last 16 weeks. The ranking (Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum) depends on many parameters: overall rating, number of projects translated, number of words translated, recent project date, number of reopened/ reallocated /disputed projects and other parameters.
