Customer is asking if we can add indication/warning of the max text length you can fill in when adding translation in different languages, also using Chinees and Japanese. Also can the max text length be added in the xls export ( for sending it to translation offices)
Under review
Are you thinking of some specific texts? This could work for texts used in the menu system for instance, but other texts such as channel names can be used in many different ways on a display which makes it impossible to predict max length. Variable character width and different font sizes are also problems to consider, (e.g. "w" is much wider than "i").
Or, do you mean the developer should be able to specify max length for each translatable text? That could maybe be an option.
