The process to translate plugins into your local language is quite easy.
To translate ProfileGrid Memberships into your local language all you need to do is head over to ProfileGrid Translation Project, select your locale, and begin adding your translations.
If you need assistance you can explore this step-by-step guide to translate plugins.
You can translate plugins to your language in two simple ways:

Translators can get a chance to win ProfileGrid Premium and/or ProfileGrid Premium+.

Step 2: Approve Your Translated Strings
Translated texts are approved by local WordPress team of volunteers, and not by plugin author. You will have to request one of Translation Editors (PTE) to approve your translation. You can find the PTE assigned to the project on right side bar (scroll down a bit), as an example on this page.
If no Translation Editor (PTE) is assigned, you can request to become a Translation Editor (PTE) for our plugin here:
PTE Request (Link provided for information only, you just need above link “Making a PTE Request Template” to complete the request)
Please make sure you are requesting to become a language editor (PTE) for your language only, otherwise your request will not be approved. You can tag us @metagauss in your request just like the user did here so that local language team knows that we are aware of your request. Volunteers will approve your request on first come first basis.
Once your request is approved, you can approve your translated texts yourself. You will be also able to approve any future translation requests from other users.
