Screenshots are a great way to provide translators with additional context for the source strings in your project and as a result, get more relevant and consistent translations. With screenshots, your team will be able to see which strings are used together on the same page, whether short texts stand for titles, buttons or something else, and more.

Tag source strings to the screenshots, so they are displayed in the Editor, where translators will see them in the context section below the source string.
