Like Albert said we need 100% of the strings present on the specific announcement page.
I added a few more strings yesterday (alt text for images) and a few typos were fixed, but now
the translations are considered final and won't change until the announcement. Unfortunately,
I don't have much time to help, but it might be a good idea to ask for help in the Matrix channel.

I don't think this has been discussed and I'm quite open to add such a feature to the websites.
Unfortunally I'm not sure how to implement this. We probably only want to credit the translators
who worked on a specific announcement otherwise we would have a really big list of people who
contributed other the years to www_www.po in each announcement.

Any ideas how this could be implemented?

Maybe adding a "Plasma 5.20.0: TRANSLATOR_NAME" string and let translators replace it with their
name in it could work?

Also I think it would be a good idea to discuss with Promo how we want to promote the translations
of the announcements. Currently there is a log of missed potential that translators are translating
the announcements but the translations are not always shared on social medias.
