New in WebTranslateIt: Ability to generate language files with hidden segments

By Edouard on September 22, 2015

We released an update to WebTranslateIt which brings the ability to control how hidden segments will be exported in your language files.

What are hidden segments

A hidden segment is a segment that was hidden by a manager. Hidden segments are not visible by translators. Only managers can hide segments by clicking on the options button and then click “Hide segment”. Hiding segments is useful for hiding from translators segments that contain code or that shouldn’t be modified.

What’s new

By default hidden segments are exported using the source text in the generated file. However, even though they are hidden their translations can be edited from the web interface.

Starting today you can now generate language files with hidden segments using the existing translation. You can change this behavior in the project settings under “Advanced Settings” » “Hidden Segments”.

I hope you will find this update useful. Thank you for using WebTranslateIt.
