#2101 closed improve feature (fixed)

Add possibility to mark translation as minor change

Reported by: shevek Owned by: Tsjoek
Priority: major Milestone: 2.3
Component: BW Internationalization Keywords:


With the upcoming change that English will supersede any translation if the English version is newer a possibility to mark a change as minor is needed. Otherwise every fixed typo in English will lead to a lot of work for the translators.

On each update in English, user needs to choose between minor and major, to prevent accidents. See #2107 for db updates.

There is some issue with this: I just updated the English wordcode "Donate_WhyText" as minor change (twice). The German translation was kept (so that's fine), showed up as changed for me as translator (also fine although I would prefer another color than for major changes to differentiate minor and major more easily - I know the language is the best indicator but it seriously confused me). However, after I clicked on the German translation to update it, and submitted the unchanged translation, the German text still shows up as a text that needs a minor update (i.e. it is still marked as text that needs an updated translation).

PS: The "This is ok" button does the trick though.

Another problem: When I change the text of an FAQ through the FAQ admin tool (and not through admin words) this seems to be automatically assumed as minor edit (which it is not necessarily - right now for example, I am making major changes).

Fixed both with:

Regarding the extra color separation: I'm personally not a fan of that. It doesn't make things easier for beginner translators, and the action needed in both cases is exactly the same: spot the difference and make corrections as needed. As you noted the more experienced translators can see the difference on the language anyway (in most cases).

Thanks! Both is working well on alpha now. However, I am not forced to decide if it is a minor or major change in the FAQ tool and if I choose none of the two options it is just assumed to be a minor change. I'd prefer this to be a forced choice (as for all other word codes).

As for colors: I'll get used to it. ;-)
