  • ryanITLab


    Hello, This is a great plugin, by the way!

    I am having some trouble in translating our website into Chinese.
    We have a Chinese college intern translating our pages so they will make sense. A lot of the auto translation is word-for-word, but completely misses context.

    So he is using the edit feature, but when he changes some words on one page – it will change them throughout the site. But that also changes the meaning, so by fixing ‘page 5’ – he breaks ‘page 2’

    Do you see what I mean?

    Is there a way around this?

    Let me describe the situation a little bit better.
    I have been digging into the plugin and the database, and I think I understand it better now.

    Here is the situation:
    Our blog was written in English.
    We have a product that will be launching in a few weeks, and we want international support.
    There are some words and phrases in English that will translate 2 different ways depending on context.
    But, if the phase has already been translated once, it will translate across all the pages.
    If I try and edit the translation on another page – it will replace the previous translation on all pages.

    Is there a way I can wrap these words and phrases in special <span>s so that they will translate one way on one page, or another way on another page?

    Hello @ryanitlab

    I understand what you are referring to, and I don’t really understand how the word page in your example can be translated into two different words (but that’s probably because I don’t understand your language very well).

    What I can give as a meaningful suggestion is that you change the parsing rules at the top of parser.php, not breaking on numbers would have done the trick for you.

    Good luck
