Hi all,

When opening an Excel sheet in TagEditor, the URLs are translatable by default, increasing the word count.

The structure looks like this:


(angle brackets deleted, since the Proz forum won't display them)

I looked into the Filter Settings, but there's no way to mark these as untranslatable.

AFAIK, the tag settings are ruled by the file Excel_2_0_0_0.xml
Do I need to edit this file in order to exclude the URLs, or can you suggest an easier workaround?!
I opened the xml and searched for these tags, but they are not predefined.
I have no clue how to proceed...

Thanks in advance for your help!
