Cucumis - Free online translation service



Major improvements


3 September 2006
Hi all, I've added 3 features to Cucumis which are worth being mentioned here.



1. email notification


From now, you can be notified by email when somebody ask for a translation that matches your language preferences. There is a 2 days delay before being notified. This delay give us the time to check the eventual mistakes on the target and source languages and maybe to give the priority to people who often check the website. The functionnality is not fully tested, so you might expect some bugs in the next few weeks.
To use it, simply check the box "I want to be notified by email when a new translation request matches my language preferences" on the translation homepage, and submit by clicking on the blue arrow.




2. RSS (Really Simple Syndication)


You can now use the RSS format in your favorite RSS reader to be warned about new available translations mathcing your language preferences. On the requested translations pages (for example this one), you can see the rss icon RSS that links to the rss url. Simply add this url in your rss reader to be daily informed about new translation requests.
Using the netvibes start page (netvibes is one of the best rss reader, I recommend it), this is an example of what you can get :
Cucumis translations matching your language preferences in netvibes




3. administrators and experts


Until now, translations was to be checked one by one and the load was very high for administrators and experts. Now they can check several translations in one click. I hope we can have more translations checked by our talented experts with this new system, and offer better quality to everybody.



That's all


Note that the greek interface has been recently added. Most of the job was done by irini! Thanks!
...and thanks to all contributors!


Bye!
