Idea Delivered

Current version of Studio (at the time of writing, SDL Trados Studio 2021 SR1 or later).

Also available in Language Cloud (SDL Trados Live) as part of continuously updating the cloud platform.

Ability to specify what not to extract in JSON parser

Hi Community,

I have come across the issue of not being able to exclude something from translation a few times recently, and Studio support confirmed it is outside of the current feature of JSON parser.

The current JSON parser can either:

  1. Extract everything for translation, or
  2. List every translatable element 
    1. This would mean that every time the client adds a new translatable element, we’ll have to update the parser settings to include it.

What I would like to be able to do with JSON parser as the third option is extract everything except for the elements listed, then list all elements that are not translatable, i.e. id, hyperlink, type, etc.

Thanks for considering.
