#5962 new enhancement

Add indication of the fact that the translation has been imported

Description

Currently you cannot see that a translation is imported. You have to check the date/time to figure out that the translations have been imported.
It would be welcome if in GlotPress within the Meta details an indication is present that shows that the translation suggestion has been imported, not added manually.

What's the purpose of this? In which way would this be useful?
Also: If this really would be useful, then this meta data would need to be included directly in the translation tables. In other words: It would need to be more deeply integrated with GlotPress.

Replying to tobifjellner:

Remember the discusion we had in the last Polygots meeting where a translator kept importing machine translated files into Dutch? Well, it might help to give feedback to the translator when you notice they imported a file from an external tool or not. Since, AFAIK, those external tools don't get supported by add-ons like WPGP tools, GlotDict etc...

Now, @psmits1567 in terms of "imported" ... are you talking about imported from .po files OR also imported from TM and/or copied from "Translations from other languages"?

Hi @ocean90

I am talking about the import of .po files.

Marking it if imported from TM could help identify where the translation comes from e.g. not translated by entering. And also if copied from other languages and marked as such would add great improvement.
But that requires defining types and put those into a separate marker field

But first step would be marking the records if they are imported via a .po file
