      Description

      We currently have a translators group in Using Moodle - http://moodle.org/user/index.php?id=5&group=173. Everyone seems to like having an identifying group icon next to their name when they post in forums, so it would be great if we could have a translators cohort with language maintainers on lang.moodle.org as members. The translators cohort could then populate translators groups in every course on moodle.org.

      In the first instance the translators cohort could be created manually, but it would be very cool if the cohort membership could be automated.

        +1 for the idea, for sure. However, I'm not sure what would be the best way to transfer the cohort membership information from one server to another, given that lang.moodle.org and moodle.org are two separate servers. And because we do not use MNet, we don't even have any reliable link between user accounts there (although some heuristic matching based on names and emails would catch 95% of cases correctly I believe).

        Decided this is best just done manually.
