Here is a Google Sheets sidebar tool I made using Apps Script to crowd-translate the tour in my "Plus for Trello" Chrome extension and Android app. #googledrive   #googleappscript #gde #blogpost #trello

Within one hour I shared this tool to users I had volunteers for five different languages! (ten languages by now. The extension is used by over 40,000 users worldwide).

Its a big combined effort to translate and custom-fit each HTML text into a bubble shape. With ten languages that means over 700 bubbles to translate and custom-fit. This tool made the effort possible with little time invested on my part including time making the tool.

It takes under one minute to deploy a copy of this tool for yourself. It can be modified to display your own HTML preview not just this bubble tour example.

It was fun, easy and quick to build this Sheets sidebar tool. It allows volunteer translators to collaborate and includes a custom sheets sidebar to preview and even auto-translate the bubbles for rows not yet translated to give users a starting point.

Enjoy!

Very cool! My Chrome extension is now "editor's choice" on the Chrome store!

See "Plus for Trello" on one of the five top large scrolling marquees at the main Chrome extensions page (from a desktop computer)

[note: Editors choice remain there for a few weeks, so you will no longer see it in the big marquee]

Timers revolution!
Revamped #trello timers now stay always visible as top-most panels even if you close Chrome! As usual, active timers sync to all your devices instantly when you are signed-in to Chrome.
Timers will stay up and work even after Chome upgrades Plus to a new version.

Collapsible Plus S/E charts and lists in Trello home into a single line. Very convenient to reach the boards below or just to open it whenever you want.

Improved "Recent S/E" home section now groups by card. See grouped information by mousing-over each line. This makes the list more compact while still showing your last 10 S/E entries.

Note that "Chrome panels" is a new Chrome feature that you need to enable in Chrome by following the instructions inside the timer popup once you start a timer. Otherwise the timer will show as a regular popup which is still cool but it won't stay on top of other windows.

Enjoy! donate? http://plusfortrello.com for the free Chrome extension and Android app.

Today I discovered that if you are on a mozilla site (like https://developer.mozilla.org) and press F12 to enter the dev console, it displays a recruitment note. What a great way to reach developers :)
