Translating Live Webpages Online in GUI

These instructions are for translating webpages that were imported as “live webpages”.   If the pages end in “html” or “htm”, this is a very good way to translate their content.  You will translate the webpage here then export your finished page and upload to the website.  And finished!

Note that for database website (dynamic) see instructions for Translating Dynamic Webpages.  And for the other type of website called a “blog website” that is created by special software called WordPress or Drupal or similar, note that the blog site pages can be imported here and translated, but when you cannot export a page and upload like an html or html page, rather the text must be copy-pasted into a blog site.

1. First, in order for the translator to perform their work, the language needs to be added to the project. From Main Menu, click Project > Add Language

2. Add your language(s)

3. From Main Menu click Creation and Translation >
Graphical Interface (GUI)

4. Choose: From Language, To Language, Webpage (Segment) name

5. You are now in the GUI

6. On the right, you will see the “live” webpage that is currently online in the master language.  On the left you will see almost a mirror that is editable where you can place the translation.  Note that although some elements may appear to be missing (such as images or movies) when you upload your webpage as an html or htm to the website, these images and movies will reappear.

7. Check the View pulldown and select Notes and Concept. These open columns. Look to see if the client left notes for you. If the glossary finds any appropriate translation, hints will be inserted into these columns. If empty, you can close.

8. Type your translation, and click SAVE.

9. In the lower left, there is a Glossary (dictionary) where you can add preferred translations or words that you do not want translated, such as product names. Click Add/Edit to add to the Glossary. The next time you come into the Translation Center, these words will appear in a field near each the appropriate subtitle. See the pulldown View at the top of the rows.
