i18n_viz
gem which inserts JS tooltips displaying the translation keys in strings. tooltips can also link directly to online translation tool (still ironing out those kinks for transifex)

@mixirving I assume for both of those to work with Loomio I'm gonna need a local install?

good question @florianaurich
this was intended as a thread for people interested in translating apps generally.

these two tools we shouldn't have need to use regularly in development. I imagine we will plug the gems in and run them every month or so.

If you would like to try them I have a branch for each tool. You may need to 'freshen' them up by pulling in the current master branch.

i18n_viz still needs a little work til you can click and be taken straight into the right transifex translation. I described the issue I hit here
