  1. Language-specific description (guidelines)

    Proofreaders should be able to create and manage a pinned description area for the languages they proofread.

    That text could be used to guide the new translators on how they should translate the project.

    For example:

    * formal vs informal wording
    * link to a project glossary
    * examples of language-specifc errors to prevent
    * what areas of the project need the most attention in the language
    * whether some characters need to be used or avoided (umlauts, specific quotation marks)
    * highlighting certain discussions that must be read

    I think the best place for this description field is directly…

    • Filter option for machine translated strings under “Waiting for approval”

      In Proofreading Mode, have a separate filter under “Waiting for approval” for MT matches. At the moment it’s not possible to filter out the MT matches that need to be approved. You can only generally filter for strings translated by MT or TM. It would be great to have 3 filters under “Waiting for approval” for MT matches, leverage from TM and strings edited/translated by a human translator.

      Also it would be great if machine translated strings had a different colored bubble in the Editor. Maybe strings edited by a human could be green, TM leverage could be blue and…

      • Allow proofreaders to unhide strings in their own language

        I have translators who I trust, so they are proofreaders, but each time they see an improperly translated string, they have to let me know so I can unhide it before they can fix it... very time consuming. Should have an option in user profile to allow them to unhide strings only for locked languages.

          • Add keyboard shortcut for "Lack of context information" comment

            Please add keyboard shortcut for "Lack of context information" comment. I use this type of comments very often, and it's very frustrating to do 5 mouse clicks just for open context info request.

                              • Add declension feature for languages like Georgian

                                e.g. "%(points)s points to %(title)s". In this string "%(title)s" is a text - level 1, level 2 etc. When translating into Georgian the text "level 1" needs declension, but because it's a variable in the string not much can be done.

                                So it would be great if Crowdin add feature to handle such situations.

                                I'm not sure but it looks like it should work, something like this. https://support.crowdin.com/icu-message-syntax/

                                • Incorrect flag for Mapudungun and Cherokee

                                  Mapudungun is incorrectly represented with the Chilean flag, replace it with the Wenufoye, see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flag_of_the_Mapuches.
                                  Furthermore, Cherokee is incorrectly represented with the United States flag, please use the Cherokee Nation flag instead, see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flag_of_the_Cherokee_Nation

                                  • No country flags next to language names in overview

                                    TL&DR: http://www.flagsarenotlanguages.com/ --- Longer version: one of our Swahili translators asked me to change the flag from Kenya next to Swahili to the flag from Tanzania. I then found that there are Swahili language variants for Kenya and Tanzania in CrowdIn, but we had selected the generic one, which nevertheless shows the flag from Kenya. However, in written Swahili there would be no differences between the two regional variants. After checking on best practices on the internet, I found many sites that explain why showing flags next to language names creates many issues, e.g., http://www.flagsarenotlanguages.com or http://www.cs.tut.fi/~jkorpela/flags.html or http://www.456bereastreet.com/archive/200604/indicating_language_choice_flags_text_both_neither/ ---…

                                    • Improve UI of the translations editor to better indicate current language

                                      Currently it is not really obvious in the editor what language is being edited.
                                      Often it leads to confusions and as a result translators put wrong translations into wrong locales.

                                      It would be much nicer to enhance UI to show current language.
                                      Would save a lot of pain.
                                      Thanks

                                      P.S. suggested improvement: http://i.imgur.com/evHle04.png :)

                                      • Being able to add a custom note to the join request on a specific language

                                        Hello, I am one of the Proofreaders on the Discord Translation Project, me and all the managers/proofreaders are asking for a note system for the join application of the project.

                                        I did a mock-up of what it should looks like: https://i.imgur.com/S2ZHOjg.png

                                        We are asking for this because we are trying to get good and active translators into the project since most of them are applying but then not submitting and voting translations.

                                        • Include deepl as additional machine translation

                                          It has a very simple API (https://www.deepl.com/api-reference.html). It does not yet support all language-tuples of crowdin, but with the already supported language-tuples it creates much more meaningful translations than Google Translate or Microsoft.
