If a mistake was found, you will also see a warning from the quality assurance checker:

Click Ignore this to hide the warning.

This QA check can be disabled for the entire project in the project settings under the QA checks tab:

Note that this check has three escalation levels:

  • Off β€” this check is completely disabled.

  • Warning β€” if a mistake is found, you'll be notified about it as shown in the screenshot above). However, you'll still be able to save the translation.
