What's New on Tatoeba? - Your weekly recap °12


※ It is now possible to download transcriptions. Similarly to other downloads, you can choose to export only the language you're interested in, among those available (Cantonese, Japanese, Mandarin Chinese, Uzbek). Thanks to gillux for implementing this feature asked by Lemmi (on GitHub).

※ Lists can now be downloaded into three different formats: raw text (.txt), the default, Tab-separated (.tsv), and as a file that can directly be used with the Shtooka recorder. This should give more liberty to all users that use lists for offline work :) Thanks to gillux for implementing the feature.

※ The "Contribute Menu" now has a "Add vocabulary request" submenu. Thanks to danail-georgiev (on GitHub) for adding it, on AlanF_US's suggestion.

※ The "Delete" and "Download" actions of a list page have been moved to the header, where the name of the list is written (only in the new design). Thanks to gillux for the modification.

※ rumpelstilzchen added some admin feature to deal with licensing issues. Thanks to him for the work.


※ shekitten proposed a change to the Yiddish flag

※ Aiji asked corpus maintainers for their feedback about their proofreading habit. If you're a corpus maintainer, please let an answer there :)

※ Ibdx provided a list of words that don't appear much in Tatoeba's sentences although they are often searched by others

※ sharptoothed shared his usual Stats, Graphs & Charts


※ 14 466 sentences have been added this week.

※ On shekitten's request, Syriac has been added

※ On Taam's request, North Frisian has been added

This brings the number of supported languages to 358! Thanks to Ricardo14 and gillux for coordinating this.

※ And as usual, thanks to all the members who helped translating the website.

Nice to see the "Add vocabulary request" submenu. It's a lot easier to find the feature there.
