Filter panel – Common filters for translation sheet

Filter panel

Just right from the translation sheet you can find the Filter panel. Some common filter types are visible for quick & easy selection:

Translation statuses

This section allows you to filter Sisulizer’s project content by translation statuses. Of course, you can uncheck more than one item. Below are 2 example scenarios:

  • You are translating an update, and don’t want to see the finished and verified translations with “Complete” status. In this case simple uncheck “Complete” item in “Translation statuses” section
  • You want to display only untranslated strings in your project. In this case, keep checked only “Not translated” item

Below is list of available filter items:

  • Not translated
  • Best guess
  • Auto translated
  • Translated
  • For review
  • Complete

Row statuses

This very useful feature, if you updated your source files. For example, you can uncheck “In use” item after rescan your updated source. It display in translation sheet only changed (items marked by red dots in Flags column), new (items marked by yellow dots in Flags column) and unused (items marked by blue dots in Flags column) items. This section can provide comfortable solution for fully control of all changes in source files. Below is a list of available filter items:

  • New
  • Unused
  • In use
  • Changed

Data types

Items visible in this section depend on your source file type. So, if you have separate projects for different file types, you should see here different checkboxes lists. If your project contains several source types, you should see here checkboxes list with data types for all your sources in project. If you have excluded some data types (source properties), excluded data types are still visible in Filter panel, but you can’t use it. This issue was described in other article on our blog. For binary files, you can find “Integer” checkbox in Data types. This item is by default unchecked, but sometimes is useful check it, for example if you would like review or fine tune sizes and positions for your controls (control sizes and positions belong to integer data type). It was described also in other article on our blog.

Filter panel toolbar

At top of filter pane you can find toolbar with some useful features:
Filter button opens Filter dialog. This dialog contains besides above mentioned filter settings (Translation statuses, Data types, Row statuses) also settings for more advanced filters in “Text” and “Other” tabs. These filters are described in this (Text) and this (Other) articles on our blog.
Refresh button should be used if you changed some items in sheet. It simply refresh filtering rule for these changed items. For example, if you have checked only “Translated” item in filter panel and you changed translation status for some row from “Translated”  to “Complete” status, you need use “Refresh” button.
Default button resets filters settings to default values
Save as button allows you save your custom filters combinations (also for text and other filters) for your project. Your saved filter sets appear in Filter panel as radio buttons.
