I often alt-tab into a different tab while editing in the visual editor, which leaves the current string in an unfinished state. If I take time figuring out the right wording, or worse yet I get interrupted, I don’t want that state to go to production unfinished.
There is already a “Done” button in the translation modal. I’d like the state to only go live when I hit that button. Classic “save or discard” semantics.
