Provide context information per key/segment, use the InContext view or assign screenshots.

Context information per key/segment

In the Focus view you can set a specific context information for each individual key/segment:

It accepts markdown syntax, this way you can style that context information in a simple way.

Check out this section in the video to see how the context information can be used.


There are 2 approaches on how to use the InContext editor.

The locize popup in your website

Use the locize module, i.e. via locizify or via i18next plugin, etc... and pass ?incontext=true in your url.

This option will not work for SSO users. You need a "normal" locize user for this to work.

Your website in locize (iframe)

The InContext view enables you to directly connect content from your website / application with your content on your localization project on locize.

Another great way to provide better context information for your translators, is using the screenshot feature.

1. Navigate to the screenshots page

2. Upload a screenshot

3. Assign keys/segments

4. Click the add button and find and select the appropriate key/segment

5. Optionally, you now can also define a bounding box around the text

6. In the Global view and in Focus view, you'll now see that screenshot

The screenshots are shown for the assigned keys in all versions.

Check out this section in the video to see how screenshots can be used.
