Hi all,

in general, I like Pootle web app very much, but I found some annoying
issues when translating new strings for 4.2.

First of all, some of new strings were translated automatically - which
should not happen at all - and part of these translations was of course
wrong (e.g. noun instead of adjective when the original is identical etc.).
The strings can be noticed and fixed if they are in a dialog being
translated completely, but this is totally unexpected. I suspect this
happened also for previous versions and it might be related to the strange
changes of strings reported by the Polish team.


Before converting windows to WindgetLayout has been started, someone told
that new *.ui files will allow us to render whole window dialogs and see
what the context is.

Now we have another big release with many converted dialogs, many
translations to do and with nothing to help us. In Polish word "General"
could be translated as "Ogólny", "Ogólnie", "Ogólne" ad so on. If I have
over 200 automatic translated strings and non possibilities to see words in
context, what should I do now (half year ago I manually searched and
compared differences in 4.0 and 4.1 and don't want come back to this
