I find POEditor to be quite suitable solution form translation. I discussed
the Issue with Ben last November - I have copied below my email to Ben with
my notes on POEditor.

I considered the translation strings only as a sample for testing the
POEditor interface and functions (and according to Ben there was also a
problem with extra newlines or white spaces before/after the string and
codes), so I don't mind too much if the current translation in POEditor are

If everything goes well, three of the Czech evergreen catalogs/consortia
are planning to upgrade to 3.3 during the July and August. Although now we
are a little uncertain due to the fact, that the web client interface of
the localized sandbox during Bug Squashing week looked almost not
localized, so we were not able to test some localization issues important
to us (hopefully the problem was just a sandbox and not a new version of

Subject: Re: POEditor.com for Evergreen Angular translations
To: Ben Shum <b...@evergreener.net>

*Hi Ben,To get feel of the POEditor interface I have gone through
translations  and briefly examined the features I normally use for
translations in the Launchpad. According to your previous note, I didn't
care much about the extra new lines and white spaces when translating.1.
Launchpad is quite cumbersome in many ways. POEditor interface on the
contrary seems to me to be kind of “lite” and  more "user-friendly". I
appreciate features like symbols marking white spaces, alerts when
translation exceeds a certain length of the string, ability to jump to next
translation using TAB key. I have never used tagging for translation before
but I think also the possibility off adding the tags might be useful. And
no timeout errors as it often happens in Launchpad ;-)2. Downloading or
exporting translation seems to be quite straightforward to me (much easier
than in Launchpad). However, I am used, that the English string is used as
the Message ID, while in files downloaded from POEditor in various formats
it is different (eg ngb.timepicker.increment-*

*seconds, or a number of the string like 889581076845216138 is used as a
message ID instead). Because I do not understand the Angular issue too
much, I just assume it's okay.3.. Currently I don’t see an opportunity to
copy the English string to translation field by one click (as it is
possible in Launchpad). Such a feature is widely used and is quite useful,
especially in cases when string contains white spaces, variables etc. Based
on what I have found, this function should be available in POEditor.
However, the right black menu bar in my POEditor account looks quite
differs from the screenshots in the POEditor Knowledge base and have much
less (and unmatched) options. If I understand the POEditor Knowledge base
well, contributors do not have access to the “Copy Terms to Translations”
feature unless they ask the project owner or an administrator to make this
function available.4. I also miss the suggestions based on previously
translated terms. Is the function “Translation memory suggestions”
available for Open source projects in POEditor? I consider this feature to
be one of the key functions helping to limit duplication and
inconsistencies.5. Is it planned to use both Launchpad and POEditor at the
same time or shall we use only one platform for all translation eventually?
And would strings be gathered all together in one project in i POEditor (it
seems to me they are). Or are they divided into templates, similarly to
Launchpad?  I am asking thees questions because  due to the consistency of
translations it is handy to have all translations searchable simultaneously
at one place (as I see it currently in POEeditor). From this point of view,
the Launchpad is not very suitable as the translation are separated in many
templates. The individual templates might be helpful sometimes to provide
context for translators at the first sight (e.g. translation of the „order“
might be different depending on whether it is used in the acquisition or
for hold management). However, to be consistent in terminology, it is
necessary to be able to search all strings simultaneously across all
templates. This is impossible in Launchpad (which is a great complication).
On the contrary, concerning this issue the POEditor seems promising to me.
And if individual templates would not be used in POEditor, could e.g.
tagging be used to help distinguish the context? (Though I am not sure at
the moment such thing would be necessary — I am just thinking aloud.)6.
This is more about the Evergreen  workflow not about the POEditor
interface:I would appreciate some introductory instruction from developers
for translators about the Angular strings (what do they look like, what
parts of the strings usually are not supposed to be translated, probably
later also how to add custom strings etc.)I also think it would be  always
useful to add as much context and comment as possible to particular string
for translators (not just in terms of Angular). It is sometimes really
tricky to understand the context of the string in cases when it could be
translated different ways (and have different meaning), when abbreviations
are used etc. Such situation happen to me quite commonly when I am
translating.I wonder if there is a way how to communicate with developers
over particulars string during translation process and make things clear
immediately. For example  using comments (just thinking aloud)?It is likely
that  I will find other things to point later, but if I summarize my
present findings:*

   - *I consider the missing “Translation memory suggestions” feature (see
   point 4) to be serious complication for translators.*

   - *I quite like the POEditor interface. Except missing “Translation
   memory suggestions” feature and assuming there is possibility to provide
   translators the "Copy term" function (see point 3) I find POEditor quite
   suitable for Evergreen translations.*

*Many thanks for your effort. Please, let me know if I can help some
