New advocates: registration guide


How do I get registered to use the Khan Academy translation tools?


  1. Look out for an email with a Khan Academy Advocate Agreement you need to sign. We cannot set you up on other systems until this is completed.
  2. Make sure you read and understand the difference between the Translation Portal and Crowdin, and how you will use these sites as an advocate.
  3. Go to the Translation Portal and click on your language. You will be prompted to register for the translation project via Crowdin. Follow the directions and we will accept your request shortly.  Some tips for registering on Crowdin:
    • Make sure that you register only for the "Official Khan Academy Translation Project".
    • Make sure you select the correct language.
    • To finalize registration, click on the confirmation link.
  4. Create an i18n support ticket indicating your Crowdin user name. Use the subject heading [Attention i18n: Crowdin user name].
  5. Look out for an invitation to manage the Khan Academy Youtube channel for your language.  We use Youtube to host and subtitle our videos (your translators will access subtitling via the Translation Portalbut the advocate needs to manage the Youtube channel we provide).
  6. Look out for invitations to join some Advocate Community communications tools (E.g. Discourse forum).

While you are getting all of this done, the Khan Academy localization team will be setting you up from our end!

As soon as the registration process is completed, you can start translating videos and written text!
