This could be a dummy question, let's say that I want to translate all
untranslated strings, one after the other as we used to do in Pottle, how
can we do that?

In Pootle, translators can search specific term/translation in the whole
project, such as LibreOffice UI, LibreOffice Help, LibreOffice Online,

You can also search in a whole project in weblate.
But what weblate doesn't offer is limiting search to a "folder" (since
weblate doesn't have concept of folders)
So in weblate it is either whole project or single file (component)

This feature enables translators to check existing terms or translations
and fix them.

Hmm. I wonder whether an additional Glossary-based check would fill
this gap in a more elegant way?
I.e. you add your terms to glossary/terminology and we maybe could
write a check for strings that don't have a translation that matches
the glossary.

Weblate already has a default "inconsistent translation" check
that follows a similar idea (but is not enabled in our instance
currently, since same string is corner case in our project, and more
likely than not it is in different context that requires different
translation, so I'm afraid that check would cause too many false
positives) - and for same string weblate has dedicated "other
occurrences" section when doing regular translation, example:

Listing the components as folders under the project and searching text
across the whole project are quite important features in the daily
translation workflow.

But this also sounds also like something that can be done more easily
offline, with the po files directly?

That said: if we were to have a solution for aggregation by folder, we
could put both help and ui into a single project solving your issue?
Not sure whether I did really understand the problem correctly.

The way Pootle works is designed to serve multiple translation files
different projects which fits LibreOffice well while Weblate is not.

Don't quite get that, since pootle also is limiting stuff on a
per-project basis. (but within the project it works on folders, with
automatic aggregation, that's right)

If we are moving to Weblate, and that should be solved to fill the
gap between them.

Can you give a full example of what you do in pootle currently?
That would help me understand the issue better and maybe come up with
an easier workaround.
(Since adding folder-based view on weblate is nothing you should wait
for - that would likely take a while/if at all...)
