Tatoeba will soon be moving to a new server

We apologize for the difficulty you may have experienced recently when trying to reach Tatoeba. We are about to move to a new server in order to address these problems permanently. The migration should be finished within the next two weeks. Thank you for your patience.

Update 1 (2014-07-30)
We have ordered a new server and it was delivered this morning. Gillux and saeb are currently working on it. We can't say for sure yet when Tatoeba will be back up, but we're progressing.

Update 2 (2014-07-31)
We are making progress, but yesterday afternoon we lost connection to our new server while trying to configure it. We have opened a ticket and are now waiting for our host to investigate the issue.

Update 3 (2014-07-31)
We have access again. At the moment, we're still configuring the server.

Update 4 (2014-08-02)
We're done installing everything. Huge thanks to gillux and saeb! We're testing things a bit to make sure that everything works properly, but Tatoeba should be back some time today :)

Tatoeba update (July 20, 2014)

Small layout change
  • The logo and search bar have been redesigned a little bit. The logo does not have the "" text in it anymore, so there is now more space for the content.
  • The search bar has now an adaptable height. This probably has no visible impact for most people, but for those who use some specific font, the search bar would look a bit broken due to the higher height of these fonts, and that's now fixed.

Clicking on a log entry highlights the corresponding translation
  • On the sentence's page (for instance, you can now click on the logs to highlight the corresponding translation. This allows to identify more easily the text of the translation, since the logs only mention the translation's ID.
Optimization of "latest contributions" in a specific language
  • You may have experienced a "Gateway" error when trying to view the latest contributions in a specific language (for instance The query has been optimized to avoid this error.

That's it for this update.

On a side note, we are aware that Tatoeba has been pretty slow these days. If you are interested in helping us optimize the website, you are always welcome.
