Re: Web frontend to the DDTS open for testing

The funny thing is that people can subvert those kinds of checks if they

As opposed to the current DDTS which will accept anything form anyone
without review? I'm all for putting in useful checks but it people
want to be silly we can't really stop them.

1.- Not have the application decide how the language team reviews or approves
translations (the current system does not cooperate well with one-man
language teams). That method has to be decided per-team. Some teams might
want people to be able to translate and approve inmediately, others might
want a tigher review process (one or more people check out the translation).
This could be even be different per translation (more reviews needed for
higher priority / higher visibility translations than optional translations).

Each language has a custom setup right now. That's why I'm trying to
get feedback on how people want it. I'm open to most suggestions, even
passwords (I had it setup at one point but it's hard to test a system
if people need to sign up).

2.- Provide per-user authentication and have a coordinator be able to set up
a "confidence" level per translator (think of it as a rating, your don't review
as often thinks from people that you have been working for years and you are
confident in their skills as opposed to new people that have not proved

I thought of all sorts of schemes but I get stuck on a few small points:

1. What is the goal of these checks?
2. How perfect do translations need to be?

Once we've got a decent answer to that we're done.

Have a nice day,
