comment Toilet flush buttons
+1. Great, intuitive concept. This is more natural because this is already how faucets work. And I think there are ways to make this concept usable by people with weak fingers, too.

comment Best practices for naming steps in a workflow (status labels)?
Another principle that I was considering was: independently understandable. In other words, I feel like it would be ideal if the status label independently provided so much information (without a diagram or even knowing what the other possible statuses might be) that the (internal) user would know (or could guess) where the flow has been and where it needs to go next. This principle would seem to conflict with your "#1- Short". Do you think having 1-word labels is more important than my "independently understandable" principle? Thoughts?

This is great! Also, what tool did you use to make that workflow diagram? I'd love to visualize more stuff that way. Thanks!

comment Wording suggestions for “unhidden”, esp given translations
@ratchetfreak If you provide that as an answer, I'll give you credit for it. It's what I ended up using. "Removed" for hiding the panel and "Restored" for the undo (to show it again).

comment How to provide translations alongside untranslated iframe?
Thanks. Unfortunately the type of credit card transaction we're doing (a cash reward bonus) is apparently only available via Moneris (the 3rd party who hosts the iframe), which only supports English. So it seems like it is fig-leaf time. And I agree that if the user's lang is English, I shouldn't show anything special. Unfortunately I can't detect location of focus or hover over a 3rd-party iframe, I don't think. So that idea unfortunately seems impossible.

I've thought the same things, but I remember the article bringing up great points that convinced me.
