Translation history and review statuses

In this update, I've focused on improving the translation experience. You can now see the history of your translations by clicking a History button. Moreover, you can now mark translations as Accepted to make sure they are reviewed by a human-being. Review statuses are useful for everyone who is using auto-translation feature. Now, you can quickly decide if the translated text is good or it should be adjusted by a human. By default, every change of translation changes the review status to Accept.

  • Added Accepted / Accept statuses for translations
  • Added new translation filter for Accepted / Not Accepted translations
  • Added Translation history
  • Changed filter status behaviour to make it more usable in real-life workflows
  • Improved displaying long translation keys in Table View
  • Improved displaying languages and translation inputs in List View (All translations)
