Hi everyone,

Translating DirectAdmin evolution skin using translate.directadmin.com system just got easier.

All user level level pages have been uploaded to the system as screenshot and associated with the translation strings used in those pages. This means that working on a translation string will show you screenshot where you could see where (and in which context) the translation string is actually used.

Here is example of checking : original subject translation in Dutch:

In the left side there will be a list of associated screenshots if there are any:

Opening them you could quickly see that where the string : original subject is located in the Englis version:

Right now we should have screen-shots for all user level pages. This should make it much easier to create and update translations for Evolution skin.

😂😂 You mean Dutch! :)
Apologies for all the Dutch people 🙇‍♂️ edited the initial post :).

It always seems to confusing to me why people in the Netherlands are speaking Dutch. While people from Germany call their country Deutschland but speak German. And Denmark does not help at all with its similar sounding name :LOL:.

Side note, took the screenshots in Dutch as dedication to @Active8 commitment for community translations. Next ones will be in Ukrainian for @Zhenyapan.

We will try to follow with admin/reseller pages, but this might take some more time. I believe the biggest benefit are translations for users so it was a "low hanging fruit" and also a priority. Admins most of the time are fine with English.

@tristan a good way of adding quality control is filling glossary. This helps avoid situations when same term is translated in different ways. All glossary entries found in translation string are automatically shown in the right section similar to screenshots.
