Introducing Concordance search in Pontoon

We've just shipped Concordance search in Pontoon, which allows you to
search Translation Memory for a specific word or phrase.

Simply type some search text into the Concordance Search text field in the
Machinery tab and hit Enter. Every search keyword is searched separately,
unless it’s part of a phrase within double quotes – in this case the entire
phrase within the quotes is searched as a whole.

Until now, that search field has been querying Translation Memory for fuzzy
matches (with the input as a whole).

Check out the blog for more details:

Thanks to April and Jotes for implementing the feature!

Just a suggestion: Using Concordance Search and typing "Extensions" I get a
lot of results in Firefox and Android L10n, translated some times as
"Extensiones" other times as "Complementos". I'd like to change all
"Extensions" for "Complementos". It would be nice if clicking FIREFOX or
ANDROID L10N at the top would browse to the string where I could then
change the translation.

Many thanks!
Best regards,

de virus.

Hi Gabriela,

That's a great idea. Would you mind filing a bug?

The feature will require implementation of some form of "exact search" or
the ability to filter by string IDs (bug 1324933).

Hi Matjaz,

Will do! However, I've never filed a Pontoon bug before, maybe you could
guide me a little bit?

Hey Gabriela,

I've filed a bug on your behalf:

I understand Bugzilla has a relatively high barrier to entry, which is one
of the main reasons we're considering migrating to GitHub Issues:

Hi Matjaž,

Thank you so much for filing the bug on my behalf! I understand it may take
quite a time to get it fixed or whatever but... better late than....

Regarding Github, just do whatever you think it's best to get this done as
soon as possible. Just link me to it please so I can follow.
