Add a link to plugins/themes details in dashboard to translation page

Currently locale translators don't get credit for their contributions, I know there are pages in, But WordPress users usually can't reach those pages easily, because they install plugins directly via dashboard
I think we can add a link in dashboard plugin details, a link to current language translators page,

For example: if our current language is Persian, for woocommerce plugin, we can add a link (Translation Team, Help us!) to related Persian translators page:

And the link can be auto generate for any other active language in dashboard
This help users to find that area easily and encourage them to participate in those translations, And also help plugin/themes developers to get more translation for their product, And will give a credit to that translators

I think the dashboard credit would make more sense
So we can have more plugin translation updates and more contributors
This can be also for Themes

this feature would be a huge improvement for the community.

Do you plan to add the link permanently or just when translations are missing in the current user's locale?

I think a link to the page is enough permanently,
Even when translations are 0% , So users will encourage to start translating that plugin or theme

Interesting idea. But if we only do this, then we may attract a lot of spam and low quality contributions. I'd prefer a "Not yet translated to xxx – Want to help with the translation?" But link to a page that is set via the translation for the locale, but as default points to

For my locale, I'd then link it to style-guide and getting started... So, instead of throwing the user right into unknown territory, I'll first hand him/her some tools and knowledge. And I'd get better quality submissions from start.

Thank you for your useful comments,

I think we can consider this via a description in WordPress itself,

We can add a link for "Help us in translation!" , And then we can have a page for a good description and 2 links in mentioned page,

The description can be describe of how to contribute in a good quality way, ...

and if you want to check more details about rules of translating , click here (Here is a link to locale rules)

And another link for direct translation page (if you read the rules and want to contribute in translating this plugin/theme, please click here)

+1 - Yes, very good

Link directly to the translation page for the current WordPress locale and actual theme/plugin. A WordPress language like "nb_NO" has to be converted to Glotpress locale "nb" through a lookup table/dictionary.
