Folks,
I have accepted a localization job for a chemical company, and I have received lots of .ASPX files with HTML tags. I have to translate all the text within the html code, and that´s my problem: to define what text I have to translate. I am under the impression that I have to translate the test between quotes, but I am not sure… Could someone help me please?
Here follows an example:

%@ Page Language="C#" StylesheetTheme="inside" MasterPageFile="~/ptb/templates/about.master" %
asp:Content ID="SubheadRegion" runat="Server" ContentPlaceHolderID="SubheadRegion">Applications/Customer List

CAT tool? Jul 29, 2011

Press the quote button to see the example text.

First of all, are you using any CAT tool for this job? Perhaps do a test translation of a small part and ask your customer to confirm that you have correctly defined the translatable parts.

Code Jul 29, 2011

Here's your sample, fixed:

%@ Page Language="C#" StylesheetTheme="inside" MasterPageFile="~/ptb/templates/about.master" %
asp:Content ID="SubheadRegion" runat="Server" ContentPlaceHolderID="SubheadRegion">Applications/Customer List</asp:Content
asp:Content ID="AboutInfo" runat="Server" ContentPlaceHolderID="AboutInfo"
table width="100%" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0"
td width="100%" valign="top" style="padding-right:10px;"
ucPageContent:PageContent ID="ucPageContent" runat="server" PageID="1425" /
/table
/asp:Content


I'm pretty sure none of this is translatable except for Applications/Customer list (things like valign="top" remain in English as they are essentially code, not text), but the fragment is too short to really tell and there could be edge cases. It's best to ask the client.

The only thing you have to change is this: >Applications/Customer List

 
use Microsoft VS Feb 7, 2012

Obviously the website your are localiztaion uses the ASP.NET programming language. You should get the whole website folder (source code) and open it with VS2008 or VS2010. You could not just change the aspx file to html file by translating what it appears on your brower. You have to translate in the source code!
