Make it easy to change the text of a whole linked word in the CX tool, without losing the link
Open, MediumPublic

Description

When translating from a language without machine translation, the paragraph comes across to the right-hand column with the links intact and, when you click on the linked words the system works out what the link should go to in the destination language. So far so good.

However, how do I change the TEXT of the link without either losing the link itself, or awkwardly writing new characters and then deleting the old ones?

If I double-click on the linked-word to replace the complete word with a word in my language - the link disappears. The only alternative seems to be to place the cursor somewhere in the middle of the linked text, type the new word, then carefully remove the characters from the original word on either side of the text. Neither option is efficient and it seems to break the "easily translate the links" component of the CX tool.

See attached video for an example of what I mean. In the example I'm trying to translate a linked word from French to English ("mars (mois)" to "March").

I'm NOT trying to be pushy, but I'm just wondering what the status is of this task?

Not planned for the next few weeks, as we are working on more urgent things, such as optimizing network and storage performance to prevent saving and publishing failures (some of which cause data loss). Sorry about the delay. We'll likely do a major sprint of editing interface fixes some time in the future, though unfortunately I'm not yet sure when.
