[Translators-l] Training modules: Can you help with translation?

Dear Joe,

Over the past few weeks I have slowly translated the first module into
Dutch (which I enjoyed doing!).

However, I am new to this game and I have a few questions and I hope you
are the right person to ask them.
- Is there a way for me to have a look at the complete text, to ensure
that it has become a consistent document? 
- Are there specific Wiki terms with a predefined translation that is
used throughout Wikimedia (for example, I am thinking of a translation
of words such as 'editor' and 'steward')? I also did not translate the
'Support & Safety Team' as I thought this to be a generic term.
- I am not sure how the links in the document really work. Which text
should be included/translated? For example, if the original is: [$link2
Range blocks], do I need to include and/or translate the text?

Kind regards,

Michael Oosterhout
