Target version:-


Please add a "Skip to Next String WIthout Saving" button/link to skip a string while translating, in addition to the "Save Changes & Get Next String" button.

Sometimes, I have to ask a question about a source string before I can translate a string, and then I have to go back to the project's page, then choose my language, and then find & select the next string manually. This is a lot of mouse clicks, so such a link would save translators a lot of time.

We cannot store any information that is for a single user only. In other words, eints cannot store "skip this string", unless you do it for all translators, but that looks wrong to me as well.
As such your request is impossible to fulfill.

The only step towards this request that we can do is to add "jump to a random string" at the string edit page, which in most cases should jump to a different string than you have now, although that is not guaranteed at all.

"Jump to a random string" would already help a lot :)

Added "Jump to another string" in the string edit page (although it still needs a better layout), and added some code to avoid handing out the same string again too soon.
Hopefully this will solve the issue.
