Description of problem:
Most translators master their mother languages better than others. One project may have many languages to be translated; however, zanata should display translators' preferred/main languages first before others to save the time to search for those preferred/main languages.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
0. Log in as a non-English translator, for example, zh-Hant
1. Enter one project page, for example, fonts-tweak-tool
2. Enter one version page, for example, master
3. Languages showed to be translated
Languages showed to be translated, sorted by Alphabet
==> Afrikans > Albanian > Amharic...
Suggested as below,
Languages showed to be translated, preferred/main languages first, followed by others which may be later sorted by Alphabet
==> Chinese (Traditional, Taiwan) [translator's main language] ==> Chinese (Taiwan) [translator's main language] ==> Chinese (Simplified) [translator's reference language/preferred language] ==> Japanese [translator's reference language] | Afrikans > Albanian > Amharic...
There is a workaround for the moment:
On the project page, each version on the list has a drop-down which will take the user directly to the document list for a language. This drop-down only shows the list of languages the user belongs to.
Two options for solving this:
- A Separate list of user languages
- A new sort order choice that puts the user's languages first (this would be the default). There would be some identifying features to highlight the user's languages.
- An option to always show your languages first no matter what the sort order is.
For last option: The toggle would be disabled or hidden for users with no languages.
