Updated Task Stream Model on TWB Platform

:gear: In the process of developing the TWB Platform and facilitating task access for community members, a new configuration was set up for how the platform displays language tasks to users.

:thought_balloon: In the past, the platform did not properly differentiate between variants of the same language. When a community member lists a certain target language variant in their profile, like Brazilian Portuguese for instance, the TWB Platform displayed all Portuguese tasks to that user including those for European and Mozambican Portuguese. :man_technologist:t2:

:triangular_flag_on_post: Going forward, when a community member filters for a language task, the TWB Platform will only display tasks that match the user’s specific language variant. For example, if you list in your profile that you translate to Portuguese (Brazil) :brazil:, you won’t see tasks for Portuguese (Mozambique) :mozambique:

:capital_abcd: The new configuration won’t affect source languages. Regardless of the variant, you will still be able to see all the tasks with the source language you list in your profile.
