Translation and non-translation issues

Translation and non-translation issues

Language testers review translations in context and report translation and non-translation issues they spot.

Rigi has the following QA profiles:
  1. Default
  2. DQF
  3. MQM
Each profile (except Default) has additional error categories that fit within a strict hierarchy.

The Rigi user interface separates the translation and non-translation issues.



  1. Translation issues are linguistic issues that need to be fixed by translators.
  2. Non-translation issues need to be fixed by
    1. developers (internationalization issues will also pre presented in the i18n section),
    2. copywriters (source text issues), or
    3. the Rigi team (in case Rigi does not present the information correctly).
