What is "the magic link" and how to translate it?


#1

Hello

In core/client.yml transifex resource appears the key js.email_login.link_label that said:

Email me a magic link

All right., I guess that refers to the link that the system generates automatically to enter, isn’t that? :thinking:

Traducción en Español

Para aquellos que hablamos español :es: … no me queda claro si poner: “Enviarme el enlace mágico” para esta traducción.

This is a new feature which will be visible on login screen ( if the site setting for email login is enabled).

It basically let you request a mail with a link inside, that will log you in when you click it.

I think that “email me a login link” is probably better than a “magic” link, in any language.

Edit: Not that I don’t like magic.

Agree with @pfaffman here we should rename (both the translation and text) to “login link” it is far clearer.
