Nice feature! It will surely create many more translations.

However, it’s impossible to make correct translations without context. For example, “Submit” has two meanings in German: to book and to send. You can book a document but you cannot book a comment. A translation for “Submit” will always be wrong in one context.

Other languages need to now the gender of the speaker and the listener for a correct translation.

Any thoughts how to solve this?

I do agree… In Portuguese “receipt” means paid document from invoice but depending on the context could be salary receipt… Many other examples we have not yet custom translated without the context being reviewed…

I have hundreds of translations in Translation doctype, how to contribute without have to click hundreds of contribute button?
