I and Praveen are having some discussions about my proposal for this project .Praveen wants
“Also having an option for manual translations would be good too
(especially since there is a limitation in automatic translation and
also many Indian languages are missing from automatic translations).
Users should be able to request translation of a post and others
should be able to translate the posts. It would be good to have a
"Requested translations stream” for each user and each language (for
those who volunteer to translate)."
To which my reply was:
“The option for manual translations, and an interface to manually translate the posts would be trivial to implement.
Use “globalize” gem to have separate translation tables for user generated content along with the regular UI constants and UI Messages. And, push the untranslated user-generated content into a separate to-be-translated stream, and the translations are requested from the volunteer users. I can include a more detailed technical overview of the feature, and some UI mockups in my application.”
Please give me any valuable feedback regarding the same.
