Requesting new QA function: check web and email addresses (MT)

Hi Igor,

I'd like to request a new QA function to check that any web and email addresses are unchanged between source and target text. The background to this is the fact that MT occassionally translates these or parts of these, and it's very easy to overlook this/I'd love to not have to worry about checking this when proofreading.

There may well be cases where some translation (or substitution) is required, but users in this position do not have to use this check.


This is already possible via generic regex non-translatables.
