Improved translation validation feature

By Edouard on August 1, 2011

I just released an improvement to the translation validation feature in Web Translate It.

The translation validation feature checks whether the variables in the target copy are matching the ones in the source copy and prevents the translator from saving a broken string.

While this feature is really useful and prevented translators from saving countless broken strings, many translators were very confused when Web Translate It refused to save translations because the validation check didn’t pass.

The new validation check now displays a more visible and more detailed error message, which indicates exactly what is wrong with the translation.

For instance, when a variable named person_name is missing, Web Translate It complains:

If no variable was in the source copy, but a variable was put in the target copy, the error message is:

I hope you will find this improvement useful. Thank you for using Web Translate It.
