Commands to configure Lokalise Messages
Lokalise Messages could be controlled with commands typed in the comments:
!info — shows the list of Lokalise Messages commands.

!pause — pause translations for the current conversation.

!dashboard — get a one-time link to the Dashboard where you can configure non-translatable languages, add specific terminology to the glossary, and check the usage analytics.
Manually change the conversation language
