Labels for Organizing Content

Organizing and categorizing content.

Using Custom Labels

Labels are a method of categorizing your content in the Localize dashboard.

Example Use Case: Order professional translations that match a search query. With labels, you simply...

Create a Label

Begin a search (or apply a filter)

Select all phrases

Apply your new label

Navigate to the Orders tab

Filter by label

...and Place an order!

Label Triggers & Actions

Label Triggers are conditions under which content gets tagged with a label automatically. As of today, there are three:

1) A search filter -- (under development)
2) Content from a domain URL -- (under development)
3) HTML Attributes


Simply add an attribute to any HTML element with data-localize= and then input your label name in double quotes, with no spaces. For example, <div data-localize="Documentation">

Reserved Labels

Reserved Labels have been pre-designated for given actions.

data-localize="autoapprove" or data-localize="auto-approve" apply the label 'Autoapprove' to text segments within that HTML parent element. Simultaneously, content within that element (and label) are sent to the translation engine immediately, without further input from you.

Label Actions automatically apply when content 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.
