8 new features you didn’t know about

By Edouard on February 22, 2017

Here are 8 tiny but useful features we’ve been releasing over the past few months.

Project Icons

Project managers can now upload project icons to differentiate their different projects.

In order to upload a new icon, just go to the project settings and upload it next to the “Icon” title.

Filters Improvements

1. Filter by multiple labels

You can now filter segments by multiple labels in the translation interface.

This is an advanced feature, so we don’t have an UI for it, so you will have to edit the URL to use this.

For instance, if you’d like to filter by the label label 1 and label 2, you’d need to use this link: https://webtranslateit.com/en/projects/406-WebTranslateIt/locales/en..en/strings?label=[label+1,label+2]

2. Filter segments not having label

If you’d like to only show segments not having any labels it is now possible to do so. Click on “Filters” » “Labels” and select “None”.

3. Filter by segments having instructions

We also added a new filter to let you display only segments having instructions or those not having instructions. This will make it easier for you to specifically list segments needing some commenting. Adding instructions greatly helps translators doing their work.


Autoscroll is a new translation feature. In the translation interface having Autoscroll on moves the translation box to the top of the screen to make room to list the translation suggestions.

This new feature is turned on by default but you can turn it off in your personal settings.

WebHook Logging and improvements to Slack

We improved our WebHooks a lot. First of all, we now log the output of each WebHook call and you can review it in your project settings. It will be useful to determine why a WebHook hasn’t been working.

We also improved the WebHook payload so if you use the WebHook feature to post to Slack it will now display a message detailing the changes. More improvements and a tighter Slack integration are in the pipeline.

Smaller features and bug fixes

  • Added overflow to labels for segments having many labels. The full label list is still visible by clicking on the ellipsis (…)
  • Improved the TermBase code to make it faster.
  • Fixed a bug with the character counter for languages using more than 1 byte per character.
  • Added the ability to create a new segment and set segment status (current, obsolete, hidden).
  • Project Managers (not being organization admins) can now delete labels.

That’s it for today. I hope you will find these new features useful. Thank you for using WebTranslateIt.
