Exclude product names from translation

Postby ositron » Tue May 08, 2012 5:03 pm

Hi there.

I did a little research in this forum but i couldn't get a definite answer to my question.

My problem is this:
Translation is affecting our product names and in some languages some technical terms.
I worked around the most stuff with a simple text-replacer. It automatically adds a class="notranslate" to the element to prevent it from beeing translated.

Yet, there are two problems with that:
1. product names in the page title are still translated.
2. product names or technical terms that are marked up with other code (e.g.: CAPI) are not affected by that rules
I already read that the page title can be protected from translation in the next coming version. But that is not exactly what I need.

Is there something like a blacklist for the translation.php or so to NOT translate the given words?

This is not a small problem btw.
One of our products is called "UMS" and most of our selected gtranslate languages translate is to "EMS".
Because of this, EMS already has a higher weight in our keywords than UMS and thats really annoying! :?

Hope you can help!

Hi,
You should use class="notranslate" attribute. It works with any tag. Here is an example.
<span class="notranslate"> Your text </span>
There is no blacklist for translate.php .
You can try to edit translation manually.

Do you plan to have smth. like a blacklist or comparable in the future?
I cannot believe that we are the only ones who like to protect their company/product names etc from beeing translated.

Manual translation works fine, but it is a lot of work ;)

No. To do it you need to edit your original content and use notranslate class to add it to the "blacklist".
