It doesnt work quite as easily as it should and when you deal with 1000’s of products or pages its not quite what is best for the situation.
An example, is just now i typed in a exact URL to filter - the homepage URL and nothing showed or was able to be filtered to show me just the URL for this page.
Only when i go to / will it show the homepage, which will confuse alot of staff. Not just that but the backend editor its hard to be certain what translation is where on more complicated sites. It can be ALOT slower to do correct translations depending on the situation and cause to why.
However if there was a visual editor list for just the page being edited it would solve the following issues.
- Being unable to visually click on some hard to ‘click on’ elements - this is becoming a major issue today with more complicated website systems.
- Make editing the right content faster with visual verifcation vs manually doing this.
- It would help detect visual bugs or translation bugs with spacings, html, etc, faster.
- It would allow FAST access to ALL translations on the page being viewed with the visual editor – instead of fighting with URL/DB structure my staff have mentioned and made some concerns to this a few times but i defended your system – however i can see the staff struggling with some areas.
Another Option (Or additional)
- What would be even better, is a single sheet layout for editing a page aswell - where all the text is layed out in a single document, allowing better cut and pasting of edits vs doing it manually line by line by line.
– The visual editor and even backend often splits up text and on product page descriptions this can be a very slow to fix as a result.
I have played around with both ends of these systems and there is certainly some areas of improvement for the visual editor to allow a wider range of people to edit translations.
