Hello Stian,

Weblate can wrok with the respository as is but it can introduce a lot
of noise for the commits related to translation. That is why we chose to
split the translations into another module.

In our case we have quite a few languages and a lot of text to be
translated so there is a lot of noise commming as git commits from

In keycloak I believe this will not matter that much since it has less
text to be translated.

Weblate has the feature to implement translators + reviewers processes.
It can also work with offline translation.

We had a very good experience with it so far. Michal (the creator of
weblate) has proven very responsive and helpful even when we did not pay
for maintenance. In our case we ended up paying for maintenance because
it is worth it.

For keycloak we have the following languages translated for all
components (except Admin) with professional translators or local people:
Arabic, Dutch, English Australia, English UK, Latvian, Lithuanian,
Norwegian, Romanian, Russian, Spanish, Swedish, Vietnamese and more are

I think the setup can be done in a day or so.
