How can we make Crowdin better?

I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. 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/ ---…

    • Add a keyboard shortcut in the Online Editor for the non-breaking space character

      Non-breaking space is often required in French before punctuation marks like : ; ? ! and using Alt+0160 slows down typing.

      • Context of translation string could link directly to Github filename+line number for true context

        This is in direct relationship to the followin feature being supported in crowdin: https://crowdin.uservoice.com/forums/31787-collaborative-translation-tool/suggestions/10694856-add-to-context-source-file-info-for-ts-files

        It would allow the translator to directly press on the Context filename:line# and be linked to the exact filename:line# on Github

        • single cost estimation export for all languages

          We'de like to find a solution for creating a cost estimation report in a single table. Currently we have to download a separate csv/xlsx for each language and then merge them.
          What I'd like to see in crowdin is a button called e.g. "download full report" with ALL the languages in the project.

          • Invite translators to multiple projects at once

            Right now, a Project Manager has to manually invite a translator to each and every project. It'd be great to invite the same translator/proofreader to multiple projects at once (same way you can add Project managers in one go)

                Highlight placeholders, html, untranslatable variables in the translation field, the same way they appear in the source string (once you have clicked to copy them.)

                • Display file name in TM results

                  Right now you can only see the project name for each TM suggestion, but if several files are included in the project, it's really hard to find the specific string. It'd be nice to have project + file name.

                  • "Show more" in TM tab

                    If the number of Search TM hits is very high, it'd be great to be able to click on “Show more” instead of just seeing a selection.

                    • Add second progress bar (own progress bar)

                      A second bar with different colour blue for own approved orange for own suggested yellow for vote up and grey not done. That way we can know which strings we did already making it eqsy to track when its big translation also add orange comment box on the string menu on which were done so make easier to select the ones not done.
                      The reason for vote up is that sometimes already translated strings are correct in my case im translating something that was wrongly translated before so kinda waste time searching the correct string and to review them.

                      • Hindi, Bengali languages don't use Full Stop (.) to complete a sentence.

                        Many Indian languages like Hindi, Bengali, Assamese don't use Full stop (.). The equivalent of Full stop in these languages is "।" (U+0964 "Devanagari Danda")

                        • Advanced search

                          It would be fantastic if you should improve filtering features with an advanced search engine. For example:
                          - EXACT MATCH of a specific string (it would be very useful to find very common words)
                          - CASE SENSITIVE option
                          - STARTS WITH option
                          - ENDS WITH option
                          - and other you will identify.

                                    Having the possibility to upload/store a style guide for each language together with the glossary would be very nice. Under "Resources" for instance, so we keep everything a translator needs in one place.

                                        • Integrate App Store to auto sync and publish App description

                                          I see Crowdin has Google Play integration and that is very cool stuff to use, but could it be possible to build same thing for App Store?

                                          For the better, providing some way that I can pull and publish from and to both stores while translating at one time instead of pulling twice and translate separately - Google Play and App Store.
