I work with SDL Trados Studio 2015 Freelance and have just finished the translation of over 150 html-files. Now my customer asks me to translate the metadata in the header of those html-files. Studio didn't extract them and I'd like to know if and how I can't make Studio extract them. Can someone help me here?

Hope this helps Sep 6, 2016

Project Settings > File Types > HTML 5/HTML 4 > Parser

Select "meta" and click "Edit"

In the "Attributes" section, select "content" and click "Edit". Select "Translate attribute". Click OK for the 3 windows.

You'll have to prepare the files again with the new settings, but after pre-translate takes care of everything you've already translated, you'll find the "content" of the "meta" tags waiting for you to translate it.
