ST: "alt" values should be optional for translators in survey tool

Reported by: fredrik Owned by: emmons
Component: survey Data Locale:
Phase: dvet Review:
Weeks: Data Xpath:



Spin-off from bug:8280 per TC discussion.

English sometimes have "alt" values of data points which may or may not be applicable for target languages, leaving vetters feeling compelled to enter an alternate translation even when there isn't one for their language. Conversely, we wouldn't want to hide the "alt" value from the vetters as it may very well be applicable.

We should mark "alt" data points as "optional" for vetters and not require their entry.

Going to push to 29 on this, since the "not used in this locale" button won't be ready until then either.
