Can I block a page from translation?
Dec 11, 2014 7:35 pm by apeks
I use your Enterprise product on Joomla site about sports betting and it works very well and translates my content to country subdomains, eg Italian version at However I have a legal issue whereby some of my pages cannot be shown in some countries as sports betting is prohibited Is there a way I can stop one of my pages from being translated and published on a subdomain. In other words I have a single page that I want to block from being translated and available for Italians and Dutch visitors. I really hope so!

Hi, You will need to add class="notranslate" attribute to the wrapper element of the text you do not want to be translated.

Hi again Yana, I am not clear on what you mean? An english page on the website is translated to dutch and published on dutch subdomain http://nl.mysite.pagename I am assuming that if I apply class="notranslate" the page will still appear at http://nl.mysite.pagename but not be translated? Instead I want only that page to not appear at all at http://nl.mysite.pagename but still be translated and appear for other translations. Can you tell me specifically what I should do? Many thanks Adrian

Dear Adrian, Yes, if you add class-"notranslate" attribute you will see http://nl.mysite.pagename in English. You can remove the language code from URL by adding the class "nturl" also. If you want to do this only for one language you should write a small script which will detect the current selected language and then add appropriate class toy the HTML tag. You may detect the selected language by using _SERVER['HTTP_X_GT_LANG'] variable in PHP . There is also another solution. You can add redirection rule to your .htaccess to redirect that page to the original language.

The htaccess solution sounds best. However I am unsure how to set a redirect for a subdomain that is essentially created by Gtranslate. Could you suggest the correct code to use? Many thanks

Hi, Please try the following rule RewriteCond %{HTTP:X-GT-Lang} nl RewriteRule /pagename/(.*)$1 [R=301,L] this will redirect to
