The translation upload process isn't obvious enough

Bug #60939 reported by Milosz Tanski on 2006-09-17
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
Launchpad itself

Bug Description

Basically Rosetta makes me feel like I'm slow, let me explain...

Whenever I'm trying to upload anything I never know if I'm uploaded an update to one of the translations or a new template. It's not explicit enough... you go upload something, you look at it couple hours later and 50% of the time it ends up as the wrong one. So I go the the #launchpad channel and the people there are always like "you clicked the wrong link." They always fix it for me, and then I feel like I'm basically not smart enough to use Rosetta :'(

I'm sure this is pretty common theme, since whenever I ask how do I do anything rather then have Rosetta lower my self-esteem, the people in the channel never tell me where to go but alway give me a url or a url offset from my launchpad project root.

The solution would be to say explicitly: "Upload an update to the current template" & "Upload a NEW template", "Upload updated translation file(s)"

Btw, it's a great tool, it just needs UI love.
