Hello,

when working with html files, what are the right settings to translate also head content, in particular meta name="description" and meta name="keywords"?
Currently Studio doesn't show any part of the head except the title tag text.


TIA for any advice!

No way? Oct 9, 2012

Is there no way to translate head content? I can't believe it.

I tried to change some HEAD settings (file type list) but nothing has happened, no text from the head is displayed when opening the html file.

Just enable the relevant content for extraction Oct 9, 2012

Hi Zea,

This material isn't always translated so the default won't extract it. If you want to, as in this example then do the following:

The file:


The filetype settings (you edit the META element in the HTML filetype):


The file then opens displaying the content you wanted:


Hope this helps?

Regards

Paul

Head content still not displayed Oct 11, 2012

Hi Paul,

thank you very very much for this great instructions!

Unfortunately after changing those settings head content is still not displayed (except the title tag content, which was displayed also before).

Do you think there should be also other HEAD settings? Or what are the standard settings for this?
In my html files the title tag is inserted before the meta content tags - could this be the source of the issue? Or could TAG displaying be blocked by other settings?

TIA once more for any hint!

Any chance I can see the file? Oct 11, 2012

Hi Zea,

This would be much easier than guessing

Regards

Paul
