Proofreading enhancements

By Edouard on December 8, 2011

I just improved the proofreading feature of WebTranslateIt. I added the ability to attribute proofreading rights to translators, and the ability to proofread empty translations in a very simple way.

Proofreading rights

When inviting a translator, you can now choose whether or not this translator has proofreading rights in the translation interface.

As usual, the translation interface with proofreading rights includes proofreading and unproofreading buttons:

Translators without proofreading rights won’t have access to these buttons:

Finally, when a translator without proofreading rights updates a proofread translation, the translation will automatically be set to “unproofread”:

After saving translation, the translation is flagged as “unproofread”:

Proofread empty translations

It is sometimes useful to proofread empty translations. For instance, a specific segment doesn’t need to be translated to other languages languages, and you want to validate this emptiness.

You can now easily proofread empty translations.

I hope you will find these improvements useful. Thank you for using WebTranslateIt.
