What's New on Tatoeba? - Your weekly recap °3

※ Renamed the "Collection" feature to "Review". The feature doesn't change, but as discussed on this Wall, that name should give a better feeling of what the feature is really about. Thanks to everybody who participated in the discussion and Aiji for the modifications.

※ Following the return of the "native" indicator last week, the page for orphan sentences became inaccessible. Thanks to Guybrush88 for reporting and AndiPersti (on GitHub) for fixing the issue.

※ Corrected the fact that some strings reserved to the admin were not translatable. Thanks to Guybrush88 for reporting and Aiji for adding them.

※ Yorwba implemented a solution to stop furigana from interfering with copying (Japanese sentences). Thanks to him for the work.

※ Set the number of sentences displayed on the user's sentences page to the number decided in your settings. 100 sentences used to be displayed, ignoring the "Number of sentences per page" setting. Thanks to AlanF_US for reporting and Aiji for correcting the problem.

※ Modified "Hide random sentence on the homepage" setting to "Show random sentence on the homepage". This is part of changes to increase consistency on the website. Expect some more changes of the sort in the following updates. Thanks to declanmalone (on GitHub), TRANG, and CK for discussing the issue and Aiji for implementing the modification. 

※ AndiPersti did some cleaning in the code, preventing future possible errors. He also worked on improving the way Google returns localized versions of the site, making it so that English versions are not always returned first. Thanks to him for the work.

※ sharptoothed gave us a list of the 250 most translated sentences, as well as the list of the most translated sentence per language.

※ DostKaplan opened a discussion about the search syntax.

※ CK wrote a page providing 10 English words per day.

※ Ricardo talked about translating Tatoeba to different languages, and asked for your help. Please have a look at his message, or at the links at the bottom of this recap :)

29 178 sentences added this week (from one export to another). You can check daily activity on this page

Gillux performed another UX test. You can have a look and give us your opinion :) Also, don't hesitate to perform similar experiment on your friends or other persons you know!


If you'd like to help to the development of Tatoeba, or are just curious, have a look at the GitHub repository:

Fun fact: In Papua New Guinea, there are 851 known languages, of which 11 now have no speakers. That's still 840 languages, and that's more than 10% of the languages spoken in the world.
