Greetings, I would appreciate anyone who spots mis-translations and grammatical errors within the Module, if you wish to assist that would be great!
To start it off, first you should write the thing you believe is incorrect or you want to change it to a more accurate term, regardless of how minor it is. Afterwards write the phrase corrected to the best extent of your abilities.
Use this for example:
(Old phrase with issues) -- (New phrase fixed by you)
Example:(If you see tis bug, report to) -- (If you've seen this bug message, please report it to the developers.)
I will proof read each issue and apply it to future patches if its sufficient.
You may also come to Discord to discuss if you wish.
