Hi Andrea and all, I must disagree to some extent with not recommending Google translate. Firstly, I wish to state that I do not use Google Translate for entire translations, since it translates word to word, and not based on the context of the actual phrase. However, I do believe it is useful in the sense that it gives a word and other alternatives for the translated words, and as an Arabic translator on this service, I have no issue with Google translate and would actually like this shortcut button to function. This is for the same reasons I had stated in the previous email in regards to this issue: time-efficient and is useful for word-to-word translations, which will then allow the translator to translate further, based on the context of the phrase that needs to be translated.
I hope you can understand what I am saying, and am looking forward to seeing that button actually functioning, in order to boost efficiency of translation for a translator (contributor) like myself. Thanks again and will look forward to hearing back from you.

The Google translate option came with a Pootle update but was never configured. We do not recommend using Google Translate since quality is better if you don't use it (and, if your aim is consistency, Pootle will give suggestions by itself). Do you think it would be really useful? At the moment is is an unused new feature that you are seeing just because of a system update. But if you feel it would be important we can look into it.
