Provide 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.


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.
