Re: Shortcuts in DL workflow

Dear translators,

Following the issue opened by Yaron [1] about DL, I'd like to suggest some modifications to the traditional Web translation workflow:

- Allow to submit a translation or a review directly without passing through the reserve step. The reserve step still remains, of course, but would be optional.

- Allow a committer to Submit to repository as soon as a .po file is available in the workflow, without requiring a review or a Ready for submit action.

This would shorten the minimal number of required form submits to 2 (upload the translation / submit to repository).

What do you think about this. I have the feeling that it would be an answer to a concern that several coordinators have expressed in the past, especially for smaller teams.

Kind regards,



Yes, please; this would be of great service to us, one-man teams, who don't have to ask ourselves for revisions or permissions to proceed ;-)
But mostly it's a question of ergonomics and health issues (wrist strain)...

My dream is of course to be able to upload multiple files at once, especially after correcting/adapting/streamlining a term in various files, or when some dev has fuzzied a bunch of strings in plenty of places (applying typographic conventions, updating notions of years, or just some cosmetic features).

I won't mind if this is a ""shortcut" for trusted translators/proofreaders", depends though on the definition of who would be those trusted translators/proofreaders.

Best regards,
