For applications with a lot of content, finding specific phrases can be challenging. Localize offers several ways to help you search and filter phrases in the Phrases tab of your Localize dashboard.
Using Multiple Filters
Keep in mind that you can use many combinations of the following filters to dig down deep to find specific phrases.
You can use the search bar to search for:
- Text in the source language
- Text in any of the target languages
- A phrase key
Simply start typing in the search bar and Localize will start searching as you type.
Note: If you search with a target language text string and that target language isn't the currently selected language, the search text will still be found and the source language phrase will be displayed with the currently selected language's translation (if available). Switching to the target language of the search text will display the translation in that target language.
You can filter which phrases you are viewing by selecting the specific Bin that you wish to view, based on the phrase states.
Selecting a specific language will show translations for the selected language.
If you have added any custom labels to your phrases, you can filter by one or more labels. You can also filter by System Labels.
NOTE: To filter by multiple labels, simply select each of the desired labels in the list.
You can use one or more of the many filters in the "Translated By" filter, including translated by machine, translated by any human, or translated by a specific human.
Example User Story: Finding phrases not yet translated by a human
If you are trying to find all phrases that have not yet been translated by a human, use the Translated by: No Human Translation filter.
The Translated by: Machine filter shows all phrases that were ever translated by machine.
You can filter by the date or time period that phrases were created.
Select a preset range from the list, or select your own custom date range using the calendar.
After you've used the searching and filtering features above you'll be able to save your filter to use again later.
For example, let's say we want to search for any phrases in our dashboard that have the "instructions" Label, but no human translations.
Select the instructions label from the Labels panel.
Select the No Human Translation option from the Translated by panel.
Click Save Filter and name your filter.
Later, you can select your filter to view all phrases that match.
Simply click on the filter in the Saved Filters list.
You can also rename or edit your filter by clicking on the Edit Filter link.
You can delete a filter by clicking on the trash can icon and confirming the deletion.
