Show loading indicators while loading dashboard and restoring translations
Closed, ResolvedPublic


When moving from the current translation to the list of translations, the user is exposed with the empty dashboard for a while. On slow connections, users may think that their work has not been saved. A loading indicator can help to communicate that the content has not been loaded yet.

Similarly, when moving from the list of translations to a specific translation in the editor, the source article is shown first making the translation look empty for a while. This can make users feel that the content they created is lost. In this case, a loading indicator can help too.

These issues may be magnified by the real data loss issues, but even with a more reliable saving system the loading indicators will help.
