You can refer to other translated strings and notes in the glossary to assist determining a

### Inclusive language
[Diversity] is one of GitLab's values.
We ask you to avoid translations which exclude people based on their gender or ethnicity.
In languages which distinguish between a male and female form,
use both or choose a neutral formulation.
For example in German, the word "user" can be translated into "Benutzer" (male) or "Benutzerin" (female).
Therefore "create a new user" would translate into "Einen neuen Benutzer/eine neue Benutzerin anlegen".
