Share feedback


@Eden Huthmacher

issue: https://github.com/openedx/wg-translations/issues/3

  • Eden: Can you take 5 minutes to share your feedback

  • Alexandra:

    • Can we do it async, can we also do it later? I feel like there might be much better feedback from the teams I've working with :-)

      • Eden: Yes we would let it be avaibale for at least 2 weeks

    • This is a very good idea

  • Cecilia: sometimes I face issue with google translation for items

  • Ghassa: Yes I face the same with Arabic seomties

  • Eden: it’s expected because Google tranlation doesn’t take context

  • Ghassan:

Test tranlation


@Ghassan Maslamani

issue: https://github.com/openedx/wg-translations/issues/2

Ghassan: Note that the translation will be what translator has translated to the cut branch, which is mid-April, we would need to do extra step if translation was during last month per say

Brain: This would be much simplier with OEP58
