Description (last modified by juliandoucette)


Until recently, we have tried to <fix> all names, numbers inside translatable strings consistently across websites. This was intended to help translators identify words that they probably should not translate in crowdin.

Problem is, this creates more work for us (developers) because we have to read all website content and add <fix> tags manually. This also creates more work for our translation manager because [her translators do not currently use crowdin or understand <fix> tags, she does not currently dedicate resources to reviewing translations from our community].

What to change

I would like to change our policy to not inserting <fix> tags manually - and relying on the CMS to insert them automatically around all [numbers, whitelisted expressions] inside translation strings - by passing an option (which is disabled by default - because fix tags are not currently benefiting our translation manager) to our translation procedure.

  • Description modified (diff)
  • By "whitelisted expressions" I mean basic strings and regular expressions
  • I'm also suggesting that we could create a shared whitelist of expressions that works for all of our websites
