All help is appreciated !
To contribute to the translations, you just need to have a WordPress account and you can start translating strings: https://translate.wordpress.org/locale/de/default/wp-plugins/bbpress
When there are no strings left to translate, any German GTE could validate the package.
But let me forward your request to the team here anyway.
@let-me-see Awesome, that would be great, I can “officially” make the request though the best option would be if you spoke directly with the German translation team. The best way to do this would be to join the local German Slack team, you can sign up for that here http://dewp.slack.com
(If needed I can also make the request on the #polyglots blog if still needed after that)
@netweb Thanks, I was specifically told by one GTE to go via the plugin author(s) in the process detailed above. I would have asked him directly again, but last time he only made an exception, he told me then.
So, I already am on Slack, but still I need you do it 🙂
