Translation

There are two available modes for translators when they translate using the Weblate online editor: Zen mode and Full Editor mode(Single string mode). Single string mode contains only one string in the page, but provides very detailed information about the string. On the other hand, in Zen mode, detailed information are hidden, multiple of strings are shown in the page instead, which helps the translator moving to next string very quickly. Switch between the two modes is quite easy, just click 'Exit Zen' or 'Zen' on the top right of the page, it's located to the left of the preference icon.
