[Bug 784656] [NEW] Cannot edit own translation suggestion


You have been subscribed to a public bug by Hendrik Knackstedt (hennekn):

When translating a project with restricted permissions, it is impossible
for translators, who don't have reviewer access, to change their own
suggestions. This creates a lot of additional work, because

(1) translators have to post a second or third suggestion, if they make
a mistake. Even if you check your translation before you submit it, it
can happen that you make mistakes.

(2) if there is several suggestions that just differ by a few, maybe
only one character, it's very difficult for reviewers to decide which is
the correct translation. It's like those pictures where you've to find
the mistake.

There's 2 possible solutions I can come up with:

(1) Make it possible for translators who don't have reviewer access to
edit only THEIR OWN suggestions.

(2) Make Launchpad somehow highlight differences in very similar
suggestions, maybe a light yellow background or whatever.

This affects Launchpad Translations in general.
