Sun Open Community Translation Interface

Today, I'd like to announce a next big step in Community Translations. After several months of running CTI, I'm pleased to introduce a new release of this tool, called Sun Open CTI. Together with this change, we setup new URLs where you can find the new and the old CTI tools:

Small Handy Improvements in CTI

CTI team is still working on CTI improvements. Yesterday (Apr. 22nd, 2009) new updated version has been launched at http://cti.sunvirtuallab.com.

This version contains several bug fixes and really small features that can be handy and useful during translation cycle. The changes are the following:

  • CTI filter - you can filter out untranslated text segments as well as not leveraged segments. This feature is applied to a specific file. In order to find out the translation status for the whole project, you can see the percentage number for each file. Within the file, you can use the filters then (see picture below). So what are the filter options:
    • All - shows all text segments available for a file
    • Not Translated - shows the segments that do not contain any translation
    • Not Leveraged - shows the segments that were not leveraged from previous translations. (Leveraging is a process that automatically translate new segments that were already translated for different project before. Those translations are stored in Translation Memory (TM) and are leveraged every time when starting new project. A goal here is to decrease translation volume by automatic translation of the same, repeating strings from TM).

  • warning non-registered users before starting with translation - only registered users can translate strings; by default, an anonymous user has assigned read mode only
  • fixing an issue with registration of Japanese users
  • fixing an issue with correct behavior of special characters in translation editor and their correct interpretation after saving
The fixes above are about minor functionality. However we plan to implement additional features that can help with translation of OpenSourced projects in future. A list of RFEs (Requests For Enhancements) is available at Sun wikis. If you have any idea or comments, please share this with us. We are really eager to hear from you.
