Translating the project
I'm new to Codidact and would love to translate QPixel (and the project's homepage as well) to my native language, as I've been doing on other open-source projects :)
I looked around and couldn't find anything regarding translation; did I miss anything or is it not a priority yet?
It looks to me as though there is partial support for translation. Compare, for example, the text strings output in app/views/advertisement/index.html.erb and app/views/suggested_edit/category_index.html.erb.
If you are interested in translating QPixel to natural languages other than English, I suspect that a good first step would be to make similar changes across all views. Doing so would enable later actual translation of those strings into other languages. Commit 32cb10b36b9c5333fc3c5e2566204acec35e032e can probably serve as a template for the changes you'd need to make.
You could do this fully for one view at a time (adding translation support and providing a sample translation), or you could start by adding translation support (to a small subset of views, or to all views) and only later actually use it. How you choose to work would likely depend more on what you feel comfortable with.
You may also be interested in Codidact Collab which focuses on issues more directly related to specifically QPixel software development and testing. For general software development questions, the go-to community is of course Software Development Codidact.
