- To reach a translation admin with questions or suggestions, see Translation Administrators' Noticeboard
Translation administrators indicate what page needs to be translated using the page translation functionality that is part of the Translate extension. In addition to that, they are the only ones that can delete the translated pages created by the translation extension.
Administrators are able to add (and remove) themselves to the group if they are willing to help other users or need it and they know what to do (because they've read the documentation and if possible tested it—Wikispecies is not a playground and translators are not toys). Additionally, any user can request it (with the same requirements) from local bureaucrats at requests for translation adminship.
Bureaucrats are also able to remove the right.
List of Translation Administrators

Requests for translation adminship
Please explain here why you need translation administrator access. If granted that you should be a Translation administrator, one of the bureaucrats will fulfill the request.

Hello! I am an active translator on Wikispecies with about 1.200 edits here. Since I edit some translatable pages to add missing translate tags and tvars I would like to request translation admin rights to be able to mark them for translation again. Right now there are 12 pages that have to be marked for translation again, some of them since a few months, so I would like to help here as well. I am already familiar with the tools because I have the same rights on a few other projects. Thanks for considering my request. Ameisenigel (talk) 20:39, 19 June 2021 (UTC)
