Show word definition together with translation if a definition dictionary is available
Closed, DeclinedPublic


Migrated from:


It may be useful for the translator to see a definition of a word in the same language and not only the translation to another language.


As a translator, I can see a dictionary definition of a word in addition to the translation to another language, so that I'll be sure that I understand the word correctly.

Acceptance Criteria

  • If a defining dictionary is available:
  • Show a definition above (XXX: or below?) the translation.
  • Show a separate card for each different definition (XXX: details needed).
  • If a defining dictionary is available, show a translation and don't show definitions.

Amire80 moved this task from Backlog to Dictionaries on the ContentTranslation-Release6 board.
Amire80 added a project: good first task.

Once we have a dictionary that actually provides definitions, it should be rather good first task, because we already have an element to hold this.

The new version of Content translation does not include dictionary support. Once we plan for dictionary support in the future, specific requirements will be defined.
