Re: OCA Translation Platformby
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 "All ressources" selected" src="cid:part3.41FCE1FE.B323FCF7@twanda.com" height="805" width="1389">

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...
