Ignore tables

Post by Nick-Metcalfe »

I am translating a bunch of user manuals. Within these manuals, I have tables which are code and I do not want them translated. Is there any way to not let these tables be translated and leave them in English without having to manually select each part of what is in the code tables and just not translate everything within this specific table style or all tables?

Hmm, I'm a few months late to this post...

If you're importing content from Flare, you could create a conditional tag like "NotForTranslation" and tag those tables. Then when you import the project, exclude that conditional tag from the import.

If you're importing from Word or something else, I can't think of anything off the top of my head...
