We are creating an UI element to show task completion and are leaning more towards showing a number of tasks completed as compared to the words. e.g.
- "0/3" v/s "To Do"
- "1/3" v/s "In Progress"
- "✔" v/s "Completed"
Our justifications for these design choices are:
- Translation overhead for the words is extra effort for the designers.
- The words take up more space.
- The gamification aspect of the number/number would increase user engagement
- The words do not give an actual estimate of how much work is left to do
I would like the validation and/or rebuttal to these justifications.
