To Do (2)

Welcome to the Community Translator Beta

Hi there!

We’ve been working on a translation tool that we’re calling the “Community Translator”, and we’re excited to share it with you. We think ( hope ) it will make it easier and more fun to translate websites, especially for community members.

We know there’s still a lot of a lot of work to do, but we want to get your input early to make sure that we’re building something that’s awesome for the people doing the translations.

What we really can’t get from anywhere but you is feedback on how it feels when you’re translating:

  • What feels great?
  • What feels frustrating or annoying?
  • What do you wish was there but isn’t ( or the opposite, what do you wish wasn’t there )?

There will be bugs, and your patience and reports here will be appreciated, too.

Thank you for volunteering!

P.S. Our support docs currently aren’t public so here they are for your reference and commentary:

The In-Page Translator is a tool that makes it easier for you to translate dashboard into your native language.

To get started:

      1. On your My Account page, select a non-English interface language and toggle on the “Enable the in-page translator” checkbox:
      2. When you navigate to a translatable page, you’ll see the globe icon on the bottom right.  Click on it to enable the translator:
        Click on the globe icon to activate the translator
      3. Once the translator is enabled, Right click on a highlighted string to submit a new translation:
        Right-click a highlighted string
  • A red highlight means that a string does not have a translation in the current language.
  • A yellow highlight indicates a new translation is awaiting validation.
  • A green highlight indicates that a translation has been validated and is current, but you can still submit a new improved translation for that string.

Happy translating!  Thank you so much for your help!
