Segmentation Rules to isolate bold text?

Postby RobSwanson on Mon Jun 28, 2021 12:07 pm

Is there any way to create a segmentation rule that breaks out bold text? We want our UI terms broken out to their own segment to apply the TM consistently.

Found out how, but it was a dumb request. Nouns aren't always used in the same place in a sentence in other languages.

Don't know if this is the 'right' way to do it, but I mark all my UI terms in a span with the class "UIElement". Then advise the TX team to not translate text in those spans. In my CSS they are defined as bold text (making it easy if I decide to change from bold to a colour or something else).

Or just make a variable set of your UI terms. Then they won't be translated, and if you decide to translate the software at a later stage you can just replace the variable set in the translated Flare project with a variable with the translated strings.
