Translation registration process[edit]

Simplified UI to use a tanslation as a captcha for account creation.

Ideas applied:

  • Make language selection the first step so the user starts with a translation-related activity.
  • Provide a log-in link in case the user has an account already.
  • Show easy messages to translate for newcomers (short messages with info and suggestions).
  • Provide a translation limit for new users. Initial translations are not directly published.
  • Present user account validation as an upgrade to the user.
  • Use checkbox-based captcha.

Translation workflow[edit]

Ideas applied:

  • Layout based on a right sidebar where context information is located (left: message code, original message, translation and actions; right-side: information, suggestions, related translations and help).
  • Emphasize original message text and located closer to the translation box.
  • Easy change between projects and sub-projects.
  • Show fuzzy translations with a specific label.
  • Once a translation is saved, a confirmation appears informing about other languages the translation is lacking (from the ones the user speaks) .

Searching[edit]

Ideas applied:

  • Search first, filter later. Filter column on the left appears after making the search.
  • Avoid results to be repeated when appear for multiple languages.
  • Provide links to translate messages lacking translations.
