  1. Please add Tetum as a supported language

    Timor-Leste is Asia’s newest and poorest country having achieved independence in 2002 after a brutal occupation by Indonesia that was preceded by centuries of colonization by Portugal. Most Timorese speak Tetum, an Austronesian language that has a sizeable number of Portuguese exchange words but was developed as a trade or contact language and has remained the dominant language on the island (only about 5% of the population speaks Portuguese). Timor-Leste remains one of the least connected countries in the world with only 30% of Timorese accessing the internet, almost exclusively through smartphones. If services like crowdin add Tetum, they would…

    • 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.

        • Add a flag for Shakespearean / Elizabethean / 16th century english language

          Hi,

          I've been working on this language, and it's been fun! But I am a bit discouraged by it not having any flag... It needs one to differentiate it, and give it a place!

          The "ENWS" flag currently on it, also is actually confusing. People might not be able to identify the language from this arbitary wording.

          There is a lot of modern use for such a flag, as shakespeare's literary works are still strongly popular today, and in school curriculums everywhere!

          There's no need to design a flag, as a suitable one exists already, and it shouldn't be too…

          • Support escaped curly braces ({}) in ICU message format

            In my project, I use the raw characters { and } as they are used in core user functionality. However, there is no current way for me to use these characters when also using the ICU message format.

            The official specifications states that curly braces should be escaped within quoted literal strings '{' '}' http://userguide.icu-project.org/formatparse/messages#TOC-Quoting-Escaping

            This ICU formatting guide also supports this syntax https://messageformat.github.io/messageformat/page-guide

            I cannot proceed with localisation of my project without support for escaping curly braces. I hope that this is possible. Thank you.

            • Add users to existing conversations without creating a new message

              Currently if you are communicating with a group of users and want to add another user to the conversation, the messaging system creates a new thread. Leaving the previous one redundant.

              This makes the interface and messaging experience confusing and cluttered.

              For translator group conversations there should be an option to retain the conversation hostory and maintain the thread rather than creating a new one. This would operate more in line with other familiar messaging services like Slack/Zoom.

              • Reintroduce the "Activity Stream per language"

                From the beginning of time up to a few days ago it was always possible after clicking on your language's flag to have the "Activity Stream" and "Discussion" for *that* language.
                Now clicking on the flag goes directly to the "files selection".

                At least for proofreaders it's kinda difficult the declutter the project activity stread when you only want to see the activity of your proofread language.

                • Semantic Commit Header

                  Nowadays commit messages are being used for multile purposes aside of the usual one as for example feed a changelog file.

                  https://seesparkbox.com/foundry/semantic_commit_messages

                  Some automated tools as commitlint [https://github.com/marionebl/commitlint] check for commit messages and goes crazy with the crowdin default message that does not follow semantic commit messages.

                  It would be great a way to customise the formating of the commit.

                  eg:

                  docs(translation): new translations auth.md (Vietnamese)

                  xxx(reason): default message

                  Either allow via configuration to add a prefix would be an option.

                  • Directly "hide" string function for translators

                    When translating a project that have 120 pages of string and you get to words that you haven't seen or found a translation for. That is in more then 10 diffrent strings and later another word. So you end up on page 2 or 3. Then the day after you gonna continue and need to search page after page where you left off, because someone may have translated it so hard to know if your still on page 3 or 2.

                    That what it looks like for me. So it would be good for translators to have a "hide" string…

                    • Flag symbol of Franconian

                      Currently, the same flag is used for both Franconian and German. This is misleading and could be avoided by using the flag of Franconia.

                      • Show strings on left sidebar in my own language (native language in user profile)

                        We have problem. We have project with Russian source language. And we need translate some languages from source language, but other languages we need translate from English. I think way with 2 projects is bad idea (as it's now). I'd add view and search on user own language (user can choose native language).

                        I think that idea is very simple for development, but for users it's very useful. See screenshot.

                        • make Settings > Files page aware of crowdin.yml

                          On our project's Files page, all the source files appear in red text. Mouseover reveals this message:
                          "Wrong export pattern. Translations will not be exported for the languages that share the same language code."

                          This message appears because our export pattern includes %two_letters_code%, even though we have two versions of Chinese as target languages.

                          However, our crowdin.yml file has a "language_mapping" section that takes care of this. Both Chinese versions export perfectly, and their filenames are perfect.

                          Therefore, these errors are invalid. If the Files page could read and process the crowdin.yml file, it could avoid displaying these inaccurate and…

                                  • Create a tab with 'Translation History'

                                    Hi there!

                                    I would like you to change the 'translation history' to a tab below where I can copy and paste an old translation more easily.

                                    Sometimes we need to remember an old translation. In the current days, I need to click in ... and after open a new window/tab to find an old traslation...

                                    If the tab is bellow the translation field, is easy to copy and past it.

                                        Would it be possible to add an option to hide the suspended/dead projects from search results?
