Localiziation with translation proxy: add custom content via placeholder

Translation proxy is a great and simple solution to provide translated version of any website. The content owner can focus on the original, and the Translation Agency takes care of the rest. However, sometimes it has to go further, beyond translation: custom HTML content must be added, depending on the target locale.

To make this happen, you can mark such elements by adding a special class to the element, and a globally unique ID:

<p>Original text with embedded video</p>

<p class=”EL_swap” id=”video1″>Original text with embedded video</p>

Such segments are available for localization in the translation view:

Localize placeholders (swap)

This is the placeholder to be replaced:

Original text with embedded video
