Transifex should take one sentence as a segment for translation instead of whole string #103

I am using Transifex and it would be better if Transifex should take one sentence as a segment/unit for translation instead of whole string. This is a major problem of all the editors based on .po format. All editors show a translator the whole string, sometimes it might be of several sentences. Here difficulty starts. It hampers:

  1. Editor's Usability
  2. Translation Memory and its utilization
  3. Translation Speed

The editor's approach to show translation unit should be changed and show the translator sentence by sentence to translate. Reproducible: Always Expected Results: one sentence should be the unit of translation instead of whole string.

This is an issue of the developers of the project. Having Transifex doing extra segmentation would pose technical issues on our side, just trying to guarantee that both the segmentation and the reconstruction of a PO entry would be correct.
