Search window

The 10 best matches are presented in the search window with the highlighted search term. All matches are presented in a dedicated search page by clicking Show all or Open search page at the bottom of the search window.

Search results presented in the search window can be filtered through the options available at the top of the search window. Select Keys, Jobs or Projects to only display results related to keys, jobs or projects.

By default, search is applied across all available languages. The search can be narrowed to a specific language by clicking All languages at the top right of the search window: select the desired language by scrolling the dropdown list or directly search for a language using the dedicated search box.

  • Key matches:

    • Key name with status icon.

      Clicking on the project name opens the project overview.

      Clicking on the branch name opens the project overview with the pre-selected branch.

    • Language the translation was found in.
