Bug Description

Claude Paroz suggests: Rosetta should "...highlight the last upstream translation in the suggestions (using the same green colour as in status bars would be nice). Add a button "Revert to upstream" that put back the original upstream translation in place. It's important to note that manually copying the upstream translation has not the same effect, because if a modification is done upstream later, it won't automatically replace the manually added string.

"Alternatively, you could prevent adding this new button if the system automatically recognizes that when I manually add a string identical to upstream one, the string resynchronizes with upstream, that is the 'Translated by' field shows upstream data (translator and date) and the string is marked unchanged in Rosetta (green colour)."

I strongly support this idea. It would solve a lot of problems with upstream.

Changed in rosetta:
importance: Untriaged → Medium
status: Unconfirmed → Confirmed

Very much related to bug 32471.

Yes, related but not the same. Bug #32471 is mainly about being able to return corrections/improvements to upstream, whereas this bug aims to resynchronize Rosetta with upstream in Rosetta interface.

To ease resolution of this bug (and make it a possibly fix-it-friday bug), I've opened a new bug, with a first step to improve the situation: bug #81681

I've marked this as duplicate of bug #32471: it will provide an easy overview of only those messages which have been changed from packaged translations, and resolving bug #81681 should help with more easily detecting what message is coming from the package.
