1. Attachments of translated text need to be processed and saved as a .txt file only. A program such as  [http://www.flos-freeware.ch/notepad2.html Notepad2] is free and is ideal for this. ''(Please do not use MS Word)''

*Log into [http://jira.secondlife.com/secure/Dashboard.jspa Pjira]  with your Second Life name and password.
==== Do you remember your first days in Second Life? ====
*Go to Project:Community Translations
Every day new residents try to find a start in the world. They need You! They need your help to find places worth seeing, to learn how to get rid of the box they wear instead of hair, to not feel lost in the huge world that expects them, or they just need someone to explain them what Second Life is about.
*Click the subtask link of the article you would like to translate.
*On the left side of the page under "Available Workflow Actions" you will see '''Assign this issue''' > Click on '''to me'''. Now that subtask is in your name. [[Image:Pjira1.png]]
*On the left side of the page where it says '''Translation in Progress" - Click that link'''. You will see the Status at the top change to: Translation in Progress
*Near the top part of the subtask page you will see an attachment. This is the English article text available for translation. '''Download this attachment by clicking the download link.''' There also may be '''another attachment''' that is the previous version of the German article. Please, download that attachment as well and reference it.
*Please reference the software strings, '''German style guide and glossary''' (Ref to Glossary location here) while working on your translation.
**If the article you are translating contains a screenshot from the viewer, if possible, please replicate the screenshot using the German viewer interface.
**In the article you are translating, there may be url's that have a German equivalent. If possible, please insert the German url.
*'''Translate''' the text then '''save it as a .txt file''' using the file's original name, but '''add _DE''' at the end. 
*Return to your subtask and '''click on Attach File to this issue'''  link on the left side of the page. Follow the onscreen directions to upload your completed translation.
*On the left side of the page under "Available Workflow Actions" '''click the "Translated" link'''.
**A bit later in this process your translation subtask status will change to Published and may be included in the Second Life Knowledge Base.


'''You are done and have helped in the Second Life Localization process!   Thank You!  Feel free to take another subtask and start the process again.'''
==== Have you ever tried to build something and got stuck? ====
Scripts, prims, sculpts, textures, shapes and skins... There is so much to play with, so many cool things you can build and so much that can go wrong. Wouldn´t it be cool if there was someone to ask for help? This is where you step in! You can help residents to develop their skills by providing localized Knowledge Base and Help articles.


==Editing==
==== Do you have a hard time reading english words? ====
''Translators are encouraged to edit each other's translations!''
Some people do. Many residents can´t access help resources because they don´t speak english. Your help can make a difference. By translating the wiki, the viewer, blog posts and more you can help those residents find the information needed.


*Once you have translated the text, another translator may come in, '''Click the Workflow Action - Editing.''' They will '''download your translation''' and edit it. (It is always good to have your translation edited!).
==== Still not convinced? ====
[[Image:Pjira2.png]]  
Volunteering is fun and makes a difference in the world. You can make new friends and share your skills with others. It´s something different and you help develop skills. You develop your communication skills and can work in a team. Helping others builds your self-esteem and self-confidence. You will feel needed and appreciated.  
*After making edits to the translation, the editor will '''upload the edited translation''' to the PJIRA task, click on '''Edited''' and '''leave a comment''' on the subtask that reads: "Edits Done." This comment should include any pertinent information, if applicable.
</div>
*Please, do not remove the original translation attachment.
