Re: OCA Translation Platform

I fully agree on the truly poor translations because of lacking context.

My workaround with Transifex is like:

Do not translate in Transifex! Open Odoo, identify the terms to translate and search them in Transifex:

- Use Odoo and open a second browser tab with Transifex, where "All ressources" (in the bottom left) are selected:<img alt="Transifex: Select All resources" src="cid:part1.98BAC219.3DAB6482@twanda.com" height="725" width="1144">


- You find a term to translate in Odoo

<img alt="Odoo term to be translated" src="cid:part2.9FFD9E3C.D6D599BB@twanda.com" height="432" width="947">

- In Transifex find the proper term to translate:<img alt="Transifex translation with &quot;All ressources&quot; selected" src="cid:part3.41FCE1FE.B323FCF7@twanda.com" height="805" width="1389">


Cheers, trevi

Hi,

  Just my 2 cents, from a non-developer perspective:

What we really need, is a tool which allows anybody to translate ON THE FLY/IN CONTEXT, like we could long time ago with the fat client.
We get a lot a stupid literal translations, just because they are done on a translation web site, not inside the real application.
You would get a HUGE translator community, if anybody was able to propose a better term, while using your software.
The new tool, if any, should help implement that dream...

  With all my best regards,
