As a member of the GitHub Student Developer Pack, we are always happy to see student projects becoming multilingual with Crowdin. That’s why we’re running a contest together with GitHub Education starting December 2 until December 27, 2019.
The most active student using Crowdin for project localization receives a 100$ gift card (for App Store & iTunes or Google Play) + our cool swag. Some of the best student projects get a chance to be featured in the GitHub Student Gallery
How to Participate
Building your project on GitHub? Localize it with Crowdin. The more translations you’ll have in your project – the higher are your chances to win.
All the students who applied for the GitHub Student Developer Pack and verified their student status can join. Start by creating your own Crowdin project. If you’re not a member yet – visit Crowdin for Students page to learn how you can join this program and claim a free Crowdin account for 1 year.
Integrate your GitHub project with Crowdin to automatically pull source texts from GitHub (choose any branches that should be translated). New translations can be pushed right from Crowdin to your repo as a pull request based on the selected time interval. You can also upload files to Crowdin manually to test the platform. Feel free to share an invitation link to your Crowdin project on your social media to get more people translating your project. You can also order professional translations or use Machine Translations.
For project submissions, tag us by using our handle (@crowdin) in a social media post with a link to your project and use the #GitHubPack or DM us. Please, make sure you’re an owner of both GitHub and Crowdin projects. With any questions, you can reach us via social media or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Announcing the Winner
The winner will be announced after December 27th on our social media: Twitter, Facebook. The most active project among the submissions wins. We’ll be looking for a project with most translations pushed from their Crowdin project to their GitHub repository. You’ll receive a 100$ App Store & iTunes/Google Play Gift Card (you’ll be able to choose which one you’d prefer) + some of our branded swag.
To get a chance to be featured in the GitHub Student Gallery make sure your project is demo-able (is hosted somewhere and has a link), and open source. This is a great opportunity for you to showcase your development skills to the wider world.
