Alerts in Weblate to indicate problems with translations

Nov. 14, 2018

Upcoming Weblate 3.3 will bring new feature called alerts. This is one place location where you will see problems in your translations. Right now it mostly covers Weblate integration issues, but it will be extended in the future for deeper translation wide diagnostics.

This will help users to better integrate Weblate into the development process giving integration hints or highlighting problems Weblate has found in the translation. It will identify typical problems like not merged git repositories, parse errors in files or duplicate translation files. You can read more on this feature in the Weblate documentation.

You can enjoy this feature on Hosted Weblate right now, it will be part of upcoming 3.3 release.

translation-finder 0.1

Oct. 19, 2018

Setting up translation components in Weblate can be tricky in some cases, especially if you lack knowledge of the translation format you are using. Also this is something we wanted to automate from the very beginning, but there were always more pressing things to implement. But now the time is coming as I've just made first beta release of translation-finder, tool to help with this.

The translation-finder will look at filesystem (eg. checked out repository) and tries to find translatable files. So far the heuristics is pretty simple, but still it detects just fine most of the projects currently hosted on our hosted localization platform. Still if you find issue with that, you're welcome to provide feedback in our issue tracker.

The integration into Weblate will come in next weeks and will be able to enjoy this new feature in the 3.3 release.

Oct. 17, 2018

Full list of changes:

wlc is built on API introduced in Weblate 2.6 and still being in development, you need at least Weblate 2.10 (or use on our hosting offering). You can find usage examples in the wlc documentation.
