Vietnamese Translation (May 2020 - August 2021)

Invoice #50534

Invoice items
When I first translated Mastodon, I thought it was just a contribution to a great open source social networking project. But at the time, I was desperate to beg for help from Mastodon. Ho Chi Minh City has been social distancing for 4 months. I lost my job from May until now. And now me and my girlfriend are having to use the last coins. You are our last hope. Looking forward to helping.

Expense policies

We process payouts twice a week after they have been approved by the admin of the Collective. We make payments via PayPal and Bank Transfer (using Wise), and can only make payouts to countries served by these payment processors. You are not required to upload an invoice document (the data you submit in the expense form is sufficient) but if you would like to include an uploaded invoice, please make it out to: Collective Name, Open Source Collective, 440 N. Barranca Avenue #3717, Covina, CA 91723, USA

Here are examples of what a Reimbursement or Invoice needs to contain in order for us to process it for payment. 

If you would like a refund, email [email protected] with the # of the transaction, the collective you made the donation to, the date and the amount of the transaction.


If your contributions in the form of pull requests or translations have been accepted into Mastodon, feel free to request a compensation for your time. When creating the invoice, please reference in some way which contributions you want to be paid for. Estimate how much time you spent on them, at an hourly rate that seems fair to you, when calculating the total.
