I would like to translate into Spanish some links written in English in HTML, without losing the link. They appear in blue. How can I do that?

Document type? Oct 21, 2006

Hello,

Are your links in a Word document or in another format?

Search and replace Oct 21, 2006

Hello,
If this is in Word I have noticed that the best way to do this is to do use the dialog box for search and replace. This does not change the underlying hyperlink. To make sure that the link is intact you can right click on it and choose Toggle Field Codes before and after you have made the change.

Best regards,
Cecilia

In the source code ... Oct 21, 2006

If you work in HTML source code the link looks something like:

link text you may change freely

The text behind the href= is the actual link adress you wish to keep, leave everything between < > as is. The text between the and is the text that is visible in your translated text.
You can change it to the translated version.

In many HTML-editors, if you work in layout mode, you can open a dialog box for editing when right-clicking a link. You can then enter the translation into the field where the text of the link (not the URL) is written.

Some programs only mark the hyperlink in blue if it starts with http or if it starts with www or if it ends on a slash. It depends which program you are using.

Dear Cecilia;
Could you please give me more detailed instructions? If I replace the text, the link disappears.
Thanks.

I right click and choose "Edit hyperlink" - that allows you to change the blue text in your doc without messing with the actual link. However, if the link refers to a multi-lingual Web site, the customer may have to adjust the links so that they point to the pages in the appropriate language.

Hope that helps! If you post more details, we can give a more precise answer!
