Provide Context

Context

This pattern applies mostly Translation crowdsourcing contexts.

Problem description

A common problem in many Translation crowdsourcing situations, is that the content to be translated may be broken down in very small, "de-contextualized" chunks. Translating these chunks out of context may be difficult and may lead to quality issues.

Solution

Therefore, make sure you provide your translators with sufficient context to allow meaningful translation of a given chunk. For example, allow them to do In-Place Translation, or provide them with a screenshot of the page in which the chunk will appear.
