Thanks for taking an effort to discuss with deckard developer
1) to get support 'Source' and 'Target' display together next to each
other on the same page
2) to get support of localization testing of any older Gnome releases
3) to cover most of the open source projects' localization testing
(not just Gnome)
Irrespective of all of the above features get implemented, we would
still require a system to capture localization assessment with respect
to Screenshot Comparison Method or localization quality review.
Yes, that would be
needed as well.
Happy to see the movement around localization!
