I give my reply for italian language/community:
 
> Clearly define the problem we are attempting to solve? For instance, Is it "vandalism" of existing translations (this could be solved by banning offenders)? Or is it incorrect/low quality new translations (which can be fixed easily after the fact, I suppose)? Or something else?
As far I know we don't have problems of a misuse of the tool. What we noticed is that the "need" and the "hurry" to have the translations, or a lack in the definition of a glossary for common terms, or the contributions of a new entry (like in part I am), goes to some incorrect  or not so pertinent translations.

Hm, here I don't know what to say, can't be done in the "same way" that PSC are nominated for repository in GitHub?
 
> How to make sure translation proposals are not stuck for too long waiting for review?
Yes, this is a weakness. I don't know if it can be done and how, but I'd like to have a system in which the reviewed terms can be changed only by reviewers and other terms can be changed (and then loaded) by anyone (view *).
 
> Should/can we enable the review process per language? This may be important as not all language communities have the resources to have dedicated reviewers.
Absolutely yes: the lack of resources is a problem and (*) I prefer that a thing is done now than perfect never. So the activation of the review process should be decided by each community.

Thanks for expanding the discussion, I hope others will join.

Oggetto: Re: [FIX]:Weblate - use po file download/upload - revisions

We discussed a translation review mechanism before, I think, but IIRC we concluded we need a process first.

Here are a few questions that come to mind. There might be more.

- Clearly define the problem we are attempting to solve? For instance, Is it "vandalism" of existing translations (this could be solved by banning offenders)? Or is it incorrect/low quality new translations (which can be fixed easily after the fact, I suppose)? Or something else?
- What would be the process to appoint/elect reviewers? Currently we accept anyone who asks.
- How to make sure translation proposals are not stuck for too long waiting for review?
- Should/can we enable the review process per language? This may be important as not all language communities have the resources to have dedicated reviewers.

Best regards,

Hello Stefano,

I'm not familiar with that Transfer revision option.
Have you found something equivalent in the weblate documentation?


Hello Stéphane, here you can find how to enable it:

I agree with Stefano that we should enable peer review (with a dedicated role) to improve translation quality.
A sort of PSC, but for translations.
