5. There has been a good unknown Transifex feature for months now.
to review translations. I still don't like the way it is implemented: the
maitainer (devs) has to choose for the translator the quality desired. No, it
should come from the translation team. But let move this discussion on an other
Here, on the websites team, we are going to pull reviewed translations only.
That is going to be a *huge* change for you. Therefore, we can probably enable
this feature for specific teams only. I don't know yet how this would be set.
Please every coordinators, tell me if this is something that you don't want for
your team. The downside of this change is the need for your team to mark as
reviewed all your translations.
It could have changed (I did the feature request 3 or 4 months ago)− and don't
ask me which ticket is it, I just can't track them all on their 3 different
trackers) but here is how it works:
* to review a string, you need to do it through the online translation tool
(Lotte) only. You can't authomatize that with the transifex client.
* this is by-string or by-page process. You can't mark as review the whole
resource or project. I let you imagine how to mark as reviewed a project with
several rersources made of thousand of strings... Thanks to Transifex, the
hot feature is a pain to start with. That's mainly why we haven't used that
before, but I got the request to do so and it will add more quality to your
translations. I strongly hope the made something to help us starting.
* only reviewers can review strings. So the language coordinators have to select
some reviewers. A reviewer is a translator that have one more power, the
hability to mark strings as reviewed. You can define them all as reviewers of
(5.) Expected change for the F19 Alpha release. But it really depends if we need
to do this per language, and about your opinion. This is really the major change
for you and we won't move forward on this topic if you don't want this for your
team. That's why I need you to let me know if you don't want this. Yeah, if you
don't reply for your team because you haven't read about this I will assume that
you agreed :) We will choose the best solution for you! (I shall probably send
I chose several translators in zh_CN team to be reviewers last year.
But actually we didn't use this function too much.
As you said above, we can't mark all project as reviewed, we have to
mark them one string by one string. It's a huge needless work.
So please don't enable this feature for zh_CN team.
I would talk about this on #fedora-zh IRC channel and listen for others opinion.
