Can I help improve translations?

You sure can. If you identify part of our app that is not perfectly translated, please report this to us via suport@joinblink.com. This request will be passed on to native-speaking translators for review.

Please note we're aware that buttons on feed posts are not always translated and a fix for this is being considered.
