From 2013 to 2017, I was the primary Interaction Designer/UX Specialist on Capevo XForm, later KMD XForm, a standard platform toolset for creating and operating advanced government-grade web form solutions.
How could we enable non-technical people to change user-facing form texts such as labels and headings without having to edit source code? The KMD XForm Responsive Editor is a powerful yet quite technical tool where the user-facing texts are buried deep in HTML code. So, we needed a way to extract this content and present it in a less daunting UI suited for easy text editing and translation between languages.
I interviewed professional translators to find out how they worked and researched market-leading translation software. I did a number of conceptual wireframes to explore different workflows and app layouts. Through a number of iterations consulting with developers and my product manager, we reached a viable design. Then I created a production-ready custom UI framework for the new app to hand over to developers. During agile implementation I continuously collaborated with developers to resolve any issues found.
A brand new web app with a table-like UI familiar from Microsoft Excel thus understandable for non-technical people. The app supported markdown syntax including previewing, for simple, yet powerful basic text formatting.
