System-generated Labels

When new phrases are added to your dashboard by Localize, system-generated labels will be automatically added to specific content types.

These labels can be used to filter your phrases to help you find specific types of content, e.g. title tags and meta descriptions, etc.

The following are the types of system labels available.

SEO-Related Metadata

The following system labels are added to phrases that contain metadata from the <head> section of your website.


Use Human Translations for SEO-related Metadata

Localize highly recommends that you have human translators craft the language in these tags and attributes as a best practice for SEO.

Label NameDescription
lzm-meta-descriptionPhrase is the text from a description meta tag
lzm-meta-keywordsPhrase is the text from a keywords meta tag
lzm-meta-og:descriptionPhrase is the text from a Facebook Open Graph: Description meta tag
lzm-meta-og:titlePhrase is the text from a Facebook Open Graph: Title meta tag
lzm-meta-twitter:descriptionPhrase is the text from a Twitter: Description meta tag

<meta name="twitter:title" content="this is a phrase" />

Example Use Case: Find All SEO-related Phrases

  • To find all SEO-related phrases you can use the Predefined SEO Metadata Filter
    • This will select all relevant system labels for you, and display the list of phrases.
  • It's a best practice to have these phrases translated by a human so that they are more accurate for the search engines to find and when displayed in the search results.
    • To check which of these phrases have not yet been translated by a human, combine this filter with the Translated By filter and select No Human Translation.
