DeepL - means to mark certain words "do not translate"?

Unread post by Dave Gehman » Tue Jun 23, 2020 3:39 pm

We have a product that uses common words (design, parent, child, and more) in an idiosyncratic way. In addition, we supply many hundreds of pre-built objects whose names have to be entered in their English form when typed into text forms and formulae (e.g., BaseAssembly, ModelDeleteButton... many many more).

Online, DeepL provides a way to enter what they call "customizations," where we can essentially provide our glossary and those words are then not translated. To be precise, they couch this as translation pairs. We enter those as, for example "Model" > "Model", "Child" > "Child", etc.)

Is there a way to provide a "do not translate" glossary when DeepL translating from within H+M?

Hi Dave,

This isn't supported at the moment but it is one of the things we are looking into for future updates.
