Tatoeba update (February 14th, 2015)

User interface

  • On pages with pagination, such as the Wall, you can navigate to the previous or next page with [Ctrl + →] or [Ctrl + ← ]. Note: on Mac it's [Ctrl + Shift + arrow key].
  • The "Browse" item in the top menu does not link to a random sentence anymore. We have added instead a sub-item ("Random sentence") for this purpose. This should make the sub-menu accessible for most people using a mobile device.
  • The icon that indicates whether a Chinese sentence is written with simplified or traditional characters has been restored. This icon has also been added for Cantonese and Shanghainese.
  • We fixed an issue where CJK characters were not displayed with the correct glyph.

Users can deleted their own sentences

Anyone can now delete their own sentence, if (and only if) it doesn't have any translation.
You will not need to ask a corpus maintainer to delete your sentences anymore, when you have added a sentence by mistake.


  • When a sentence is tagged 'OK', the tag is removed when the sentence is modified. Note: if you are editing a sentence from the sentence's page, you may notice that the tag remains even after you have edited it. This is normal. You will need to refresh the page to see it disappear.
  • In some situations, logging in systematically redirects to the homepage. We changed the redirection to lead instead to the last page viewed before attempting to log in.
  • Email notifications subjects are now encoded properly.

Wall messages re-imported

The Wall messages that were lost during a server crash have been re-imported.

Google Summer of Code 2015

We are preparing to apply as a mentoring organization for Google Summer of Code 2015. We will submit our application some time this weekend, and we will know on March 2 if we are accepted or not.

Even if we are not yet officially part of GSoC 2015, a wave of students already started contacted us. Some of them have even contributed code that has been released:
  • the keyboard shortcuts to navigate from page to page
  • the "Random sentence" sub-item in the menu
  • the clickable arrow icon in the search bar, to swap languages (released last week)
And there's more to come :)
