Different content in different languages

Postby pviscogl on Tue Oct 20, 2020 7:22 am

Hi,
I am working on a project where I have to translate to 2 other languages. The project contains approx 20 targets already for the source language. Ideally, I would not duplicate the targets for what I am trying to do because I have very complex condition expressions for each target so that would add to the complexity.
In a couple of topics, I have some content that is specific to each language. Actually, it is for different Country. For example, I have a paragraphe in French dedicated to Québec (Canada), but when I publish the same content for the rest of Canada (in English), I need another paragraph. Any idea how I could do this?

In another instance, I have a table with 4 rows (it could be a bullet list if its easier) where the 4 rows need to be in a specific order (not alphabetical). In another language, the 4 rows need to be in another order. I was thinking of duplicating the table for each language and display the appropriate one... but how?
Thank you,
Pascal

Hi, I found something that works well for HTML output:
*[xml\:lang |= "en"]
{
color: red;
}

But so far, no luck with PDF outputs. Anyone has an idea?

Just thinking aloud here, to see if anyone "in the know" can pipe up.

Is this situation something where media queries might work?
