Exclude terms from translation

Postby medea on Tue Jun 04, 2019 9:04 am

I have several terms in my document that should not be translated. Specifically: product and company names, folder structures and directory paths, and code strings. How do I tell Lingo which terms should always be in the original language and never translated?

Is it a matter of telling Lingo or telling your translator?
In either case, the answer probably involves wrapping the term in a span that you create to say "Don't translate what's in here!"

Hi Medea.

You can filter terms out of the translation using conditions. Here's the topic in the docs...
