Suggestions and revisions

Post by Magus » Mon Aug 20, 2018 7:17 pm

Suggestions
Suggestions serve 2 purposes:
1) If you're not sure of your translation, you can instead propose a suggestion. Later, a more experienced translator will review it and either accept or fix it.
2) Anyone can add them. You don't even need to be logged in (currently). That allows lazy asses to translate without registering.
However:
- any logged in user can delete any suggestion if they wish, so keep that in mind.
- a suggestion will not make it into translation until someone accepts it. That is extra work. So if you're sure of the translation, log in and save it properly.

Strings marked for revision
Simple. When a source string is changed (mod updated, etc), translation system will show you the source, change in the source (highligthed in green/red) and old translation. You will need to review the old translation and adapt it (or translate from scratch). Usually the change is minor, such as spelling, but not always.


Translations will be released when all suggestions and revisions are cleared, no earlier.
I do not respond to personal messages or emails about my mods and projects. Use forums. Also, see our talk channels.
