|How to start|
Hi MinecraftAustralia. Welcome to translatewiki.net!
You can now start translating.
You should also check the portal for your language, the link is in the sidebar. Other useful pages are linked in the menu next to this message.
Your translations are transferred to the standard product every few days or every few weeks depending on the product. Please notice that it may take longer before you see your translation in the actual product.
We wish you a productive and pleasant stay. Please leave any questions on Support. Cheers!

You are translating to a whole lot of languages: Irish, Tamil, Maori, Scots, and more. Are you sure you know them all well? Submitting machine translations without knowing the language is a no-no.
Yes, I know basic knowledge of those languages and I contributed to them because they had nearly 100% fully translated (except Māori, I contribute to it because I know some). I just can't put all of them on my user page otherwise the list would be huge.
I find it hard to believe.
I checked a sample of your translation to several languages, and all of them were exact copies of what Google Translate outputs. This is too unlikely.
I revoked your translator permission. I will reinstate it if you can prove that you actually know the languages into which you translate.
Fine. No more translations into languages other than Norfuk, Māori, Tok Pisin and Bislama (and maybe Australian Kriol if you ever add it). Can I just have my translator rights back?! Sorry, I'm just pretty pissed off right now. I only did those translations (I will admit, they are from Google, but does that really mean I'm a fucking cunt and I'm offensive or whatever, especially considering Google is pretty fucking accurate for most languages these days?) because they were nearly complete. I didn't know you couldn't do machine translations, so I'm sorry. I made an account so I could translate messages and fix incorrect ones, not to be banned, so it's kinda shitty. Sorry for the rant. Could you please give my translator rights back? Thanks.
I asked people who know these languages to check your translations, and they were not good.
It doesn't look like you understand what is supposed to be done on this website. Contributing guesses, dictionary translations, machine translations, and auto-converted text is not helpful. It wastes the time of volunteers who have to clean it up.
If you really want to help, find people who actually know these languages well and teach them to contribute.
