Trados 7.5

I notice that the default html tag settings do not provide for the translation of meta tags (description / keyword). Is there an easy way to change this?

were it a Kudoz question ... Feb 26, 2007

Is there an easy way to change this?


... I would click on "I think this is a good question".

By the way, I do no think there's any way around translating these entries by hand. The problem of course is, one may forget to do it.

Looking forward to a good answer or two

I did work it out... sort of! Feb 26, 2007

I can get it to make the content of meta tags translatable:

However, I wanted to have only description and keywords as translatable attributes, for which I still need help for.

Here are the changes I made to meta tag:

Tag59=META:External,Empty,Translatable Attributes:content,Other Attributes:NAME,Description,Keywords,http-equiv,dir,scheme,lang

(In C:\Program Files\SDL International\T2006\TT\HTML4.ini file)

Hi Spiros,

Explanation Feb 27, 2007

Hi again, I wil ltry to remember...

Your file must be closed but TagEditor open.
Open the Tag settings Wizard and select the predefined html settings. Click Properties and select the "Elements" tab.
Select and tick the element Meta and click Properties, then tick the "Normal" and "Always translate" buttons... that should do the trick.

HTH,
Sylvain

That far... Feb 27, 2007

I did already manage by myself ):

The problem is how to set the conditions so that only DESCRIPTION and KEYWORDS are translated
