Labels are a method of categorizing your phrases in the Localize dashboard. You can use labels to filter your phrases in the phrases dashboard and when ordering translations.
To create a new label in the dashboard, scroll to the bottom of the labels block and select the "+ Create label" link.
Enter the label name and select 'Create label'.
Note: You can also create a label by creating a Label Trigger.
To edit an existing label, select the gear icon next to the label in the list.
Make your changes and select 'Save label'.
To delete an existing label, select the gear icon next to the label in the list.
Select 'Delete label', then click OK in the warning dialog.
This will remove the label from all phrases to which it was added.
To add a label to a single phrase in the dashboard, select the drop-down at the top-right of the phrase, then select the checkbox next to the desired label.
You can use labels to filter your phrases when ordering professional translations.
With labels, you simply...
Navigate to the Orders tab:
Filter by label:
Select the desired label from the list
...and Place an order!
Label Triggers are conditions under which phrases get tagged with a label automatically.
1) HTML 'data-localize' Attributes
2) A search filter -- (future feature request)
2) Content from a domain URL -- (future feature request)
<HTML ELEMENT data-localize="TYPE-YOUR-LABEL-HERE">
Simply add the
data-localize= attribute to any HTML element and then input your label name in double quotes, with no spaces.
You can add multiple labels to any one HTML element, including <meta> tags and your <title> tag.
<div data-localize="Documentation auto-approve">
This will add 2 labels to the phrase(s) contained in the div: 'Documenation' and 'auto-approve'
Reserved Labels have been pre-designated for given actions.
Adding the attribute
data-localize="auto-approve" to an HTML element applies the label 'auto-approve' to phrases within that HTML parent element. When phrases within that element are sent to the translation engine, the phrases are put directly into the Published bin, without further input from you, and labelled with "auto-approve".
Note: This also applies to <meta> tags in the header of your HTML page.
Label Actions automatically apply when a phrase gets added to a label. Currently, we have four:
Approve (as described above)
Block -- (under development)
Ignore -- (under development)
Delete -- (under development)
All label customization, including triggers and actions, may be found in the gear icon.
