OneSky cares about the productivity and happiness of our translators. We launched a brand new translation tool with a bunch of improvements according from the feedbacks from the translators.
The new tool helps the translators to do their jobs in a much easier way providing better quality too.
Here are some of the major improvements:
The translators may need to work on a translation for hours. The new interface is designed to focus more on the “translate” action and show the status of translation in a better way.
No extra information for distraction. The translators can solely concentrate on the job.
We have added keyboard shortcuts for most of the common actions. Experienced translators will be able to work on a faster pace by being familiar with the shortcuts.
The shortcut list will be found either at the bottom of the menu or simply pressing “?” in the tool.
Show invisible characters
The invisible characters like space or newline are difficult to be spotted by the translators. Translators will now be able to make them visible by switching on the highlight feature.
Ask for revision
Admins or moderators may have some translations that require the translators to clarify. Disapproving translations will make it disappear from the output files. So we have added a new features to mark the translation as “Needs Revision” without disapproving it.
The translators will be able to filter by those that “need to be revised” translations in order to resolve them easily.
There are other improvements including faster performance, so that less error will surface. We’d like to help the translators to provide better translation in a faster way by improving our translation tool continuously.
