Thanks Robert.

Nice presentation of graphs.

I think the limitations are that it is automated, so the checker does
not know that .gro and NTSC are best not translated and so many of the
'spelling problems' are false positives.  It needs a native speaker of
each language interested in using it for it to be useful.

Possibly worth extracting all the words like .gro and NTSC that are left
untranslated in all the translations, and moving them to the bottom of
each problem list.  They are likely to be domain specific terms that
should not be translated, and hence 'false positives'.  The ones left at
the top of each list would then be more likely to be genuine problems.


I think the report links should link to unpacked content so that they
can be easily explored on line.  It is inconvenient having to do extra
steps to unpack to see inside a report, and that will discourage people
from looking inside.  You want people to be looking inside.

Hi James,

The reports are generated with pology & languagetool. Pology extracts the messages before analyzing them with languagetool.
You can simply add a comments in translation to skip false positives as it's mentioned in pology manual:
