Hi!

Became a user of http://lyricstranslate.com yesterday, and I really like this community! It reminds me some open source communities, http://en.wikipedia.org/, http://stackoverflow.com/, http://creativecommons.org - a new way of sharing information, new kind of lifestyle.

Functionality is really great (I love Ajax in lookups, placeholders, free editing of any content etc)
Still, there is no limit for perfection!

Several suggestions:
- history of edit changes
- licensing (GNU & different CCs)
- statistic by languages (it's really great, see wiki stats for articles per language)

I'll be back here to add more!

Thank you!

Thanks for answering.

Here's several new:
- Do you have some feed? I have added site to Blogger Following, it says "You have followed this URL, but we couldn't find a feed for it"
- Can you add Login with Google account or with Open ID? Its so great to browse from one favorite site to another without need of login again and again!

Thank you once more!

We have language feeds, e.g. you may subscribe to http://lyricstranslate.com/en/language/ukrainian Smile

Thank you, I had no idea. Its great.

One more idea - what about adding guitar chords (like here http://tabs.ultimate-guitar.com/b/beatles/yesterday_ver3_crd_843697id_02...)? I understand the main purpose is to translate, but sometimes it's great to have translation, adapted to melody. And chords helps same way as video or audio.

Thanks for the idea. We have no chords-related features, but you may add chords along with lyrics or post them in comments - it'd be interesting for some users.

Hi, I had a suggestion too and thought it would be better to write it here rather than open a new topic.

With many languages, and in particular those that are not written with Roman script, it's hard for people to read the original text of the song. I did a couple of translations from Hebrew and added a line of transcript between brackets below each line of translation, but it doesn't look very nice..
I think it would be really helpful if there was an option (or an obligation?..) to add a transcription, as a third column between that of the source and that of the translation, or maybe something like a change into transcript when passing over the line with the mouse..

Why don't you add it as a translation? Hebrew to Hebrew.

well.. it's an option, but it seems a bit clumsy to me, it's better to have it all in one place, no? besides there are so many songs that need transcription

I think songs where an artist is doing a feature should also appear on their page.

Like this song here:
Artist: Kourosh Tazmini
Featuring artist: Anda Adam
http://lyricstranslate.com/en/kourosh-tazmini-can-you-feel-love-lyrics.html

It should also appear on Anda Adam's page:
http://lyricstranslate.com/en/anda-adam-lyrics.html

post a transcription and it would be available from all translation pages, see here for example.

I often feel the need of being able to increase the font size, not zooming the entire webpage - which I actually do.
