Translation Priorities

Problem: There are a huge number of translations to do, and current huge unprioritized list is not optimal.

language.php - what about divide it to two files - one for frontend, second for backend? This is a easyiest way how to speed up a translate process. For the most times, is frontend more important to translate.


We usually want to prioritize what is visible to end users and leave the admin panel in English. But there is a blurry line between back-end vs front-end.

i18n.tiki.org helps with translations in context. But in some cases, it's more interesting to go with a list of strings...

php console.php translation:getstrings iterates via all the templates.

But how can we prioritize?

Ideas

1.1.1. 3 permission levels

  • End user (Can read and add content, but not manage)
  • Content editors (Can manage some content sections)
  • Admin


How about using our permission system?

If a translation is only visible to tiki_p_admin, it is for Admin.

If translation is visible to someone with tiki_p_admin* like tiki_p_admin_wiki_blog, etc., we may want to translate.

All the other strings are potentially visible to site visitors and should be prioritized.

1.1.2. Preference filters

We have preferences filters like basic, advanced, experimental (and we will likely add more)

Basic features should be prioritized, and experimental features should not.

1.1.3. Current preferences for a specific Tiki instances

Maybe php console.php translation:getstrings could be ran locally and exclude strings for deactivated features?


In general

Keywords

The following is a list of keywords that should serve as hubs for navigation within the Tiki development and should correspond to documentation keywords.

Each feature in Tiki has a wiki page which regroups all the bugs, requests for enhancements, etc. It is somewhat a form of wiki-based project management. You can also express your interest in a feature by adding it to your profile. You can also try out the Dynamic filter.
