Bitext rules: return source token matches in target?


(Jörg Beisiegel) #1

Hello,
sorry to bother again. Is it possible for bitext rules to return the source token matches in the suggestion?

Regards,
Jörg

Hello,

no, it's impossible. I didn't think it would be useful, as the bitext check targets the translation. What is your scenario?

Best,
Marcin

Hello Marcin,
I am checking translations that contain UI translations, followed by the original GUI string in parenthesis.
Rule writing would be easier and more powerful to directly use the matched source in the target. This specially applies to deviations in capitalization. Another advantage: Corrections, Messages and Examples could be written in a more dynamic way.

Regards,
Jörg

I can see. Could you please enter this as an issue? I tend to forget about the forum (sorry) but this looks like a good enhancement!

I will need to think how to implement this. Not exactly very easy but doable.

Best,
Marcin

Hello Marcin,
thank you very much for picking up my suggestion.
I have created an issue a couple of minutes ago.
