Translators asked to remove asterisks and plus symbols from strings

22 Apr '19

Early in the project there was inconsistent handling of the * (asterisk) and + (plus) symbols in translation strings. These symbols are now added in the user interface in the computer code and should be removed from the translation strings. In Lokalise, these will appear as “unverified” translations where the only thing that has changed is the removal of the symbol.

Related to this is how FOLIO is going to handle shortcut keys. At the moment, some FOLIO Apps are adding these to the translation strings, but we know that is not a long-term solution. There is an open issue for setting up a pattern for properly displaying shortcut keys in the user interface. I will post a similar message when a solution is in place for shortcut keys.
