You have started a review task to review translations for a live web application.


Pre-requisite: RigiJS must be active (e.g. via the Rigi Chrome Extension).

This section describes the steps when you execute a live LAT.
  1. Click Start review.

    This opens a dialog where you could change the URL of the live web application.

  2. Click Start.

    This opens a new browser window with the live site.

    Make sure that you have loaded the Rigi language. In many cases, this will be the default for the staging server. If not, check out the description that the Project Manager provided for this task.

  3. Show the Rigi window and live application window side-by-side.

    The Rigi window shows the list of strings that are shown on the current live page.

  4. Navigate through the web application.

    Assume that that you spotted an error!

  5. Move your mouse over the text.

    and the text in the string list gets selected.

    This will show the following dialog.

  8. Enter your translation or non-translation issue.

    The fields in this dialog are described in this article.

  9. Click Create.

    Rigi captures the current page. Someone who inspects the issue later, will see this preview.

    The text in the string list gets a badge with the number of issues for this string.

    You can click the badge to see and/or edit the issue.

  10. The status bar shows the amount of strings on the current page that are verified and unverified.

    The objective of an LAT is to mark all strings that were reviewed as verified..

    Click verify strings to mark all strings on the current (live) page as reviewed.

    or (if needed) only verify/un-verify a selection of strings:

  11. Keep reviewing the live site until you are done.
