    • "loading" not available for translation on translate.uservoice.com

      Originally filed as a part of this legacy trello card: https://trello.com/c/2ZtTf0xJ/2218-phrases-not-on-translation-portal

      Other phrases were added in that fix, but not "loading". Here is Jeff's explanation:

      so the Loading one is a bit of a special case. I think in addition to the issues w the rest, for that one in particular the rails controller is missing some boilerplate to set the correct localization settings. so my sense is that that string is an orphan as far as categories.

        • Translate custom fields on the widget

          Our widget localization translates our default strings, but not custom fields.

            • Bahasa Indonesia Translation

              It would be nice to have Bahasa Indonesia translation, I'd glad to do that.

              • Show context for words/phrases on translate.uservoice.com

                When translating words/phrases on the translation portal, you don't have context for where those words/phrases will be used.

                This can result in wrong translations. For example, a word like "comment" could be translated different ways depending on how it's used in a sentence.

                • Ability to disable translations

                  If the app or web-app doesn't support some languages, it will be interesting to disable them. Since support will just not be good enough, plus, it is a way of discouraging users of posting ideas and comments in their own language.

                          It'd be great to give some credit to people who already did a big contribution.

                                  • Provide better context information / Live Edit

                                    First of all: We love uservoice (we use it ourselves) plus we really think that your translation center is a great idea. However, when browsing the admin panel (e.g. in German) we find a lot of translations that simply don't match their meaning.

                                    We built https://phraseapp.com, a service that provides real context information for translations by allowing a live edit right on the site.

                                    We would be glad if we could integrate our software with your translation center for you, to improve the translation process for uservoice even further and assist your translating user base with their great job!

                                    • Allow admins to choose their own text

                                      The translation into Dutch is not good. I keep adding correct translations in the tool, but they are not implemented. Let admins choose their own texts and the problem is solved.

                                      • Facebook App: Translation

                                        It is important to have a correct translation of the Facebook-App. If you check the attached file, you will see a lot of non-translated words and even wrong words in the German version.

                                        Maybe we could work together, to improve the app translation?
                                        I would be thankful, if I can support you with right translation in German! What do you think?

                                          If many people work on a translation, there should be some general guidelines. Those will greatly improve the quality. Topics to cover are:

                                          * Some languages have a formal and informal translation for "you" (french, dutch). Which one to use? Is looks very clumsy if they are mixed (which is happening right now).

                                          * Translations for application specific concepts should be standardized. For example, the translation of "sign in", "case", "ticket" etcetera should be used consistently throughout the translation.

                                          And I guess, 5-10 more. But I'm not a professional translator.
