Is it possible to have the list of items to translate or to review, presented in a random order ? It appears that the order is always the same. May be there is a reason. But presenting the texts in a random order improves the covering of the operations and brings surprises in the translated subjects making them atractive.
I can imagine some people would like to do it in random order, especially for review. For myself it helps to do it in order, so I don't need check context for every message. For example two different software could use different wording for some term, and inconsistent translations would be hard(er) to notice if related messages did not appear together.
Christian, thanks for the idea. Do you have some specific case in mind, which makes it bad for you to be shown always the same messages? Maybe some especially "boring" messages in some message group you monitor? Because of course you're going to see again only the messages you decide not to translate/review, no?
Oh no specific example in mind but ... better : could it be a Yes/No option for the person who translates or rereads: yes I want a random order,or no I prefer to follow the original flow of messages to reinforce the coherence of the translation for groups of messages.
