(*) Please be sure you're on available plan (Growth or Premium plan) to grab this function and the Glossary only apply for Editable language type which contents are in Manage Content.

(*) Texts applied in Glossary will be always translated correctly corresponding to the contents defined in rules.

(*) Can’t create many rules with the same default word in the same language and resource page. If the app detects the duplicates, it’ll pop a message to alert.

(*) In case you delete any target language then the rule with that specific target language will be deleted as well.

(*) In this basic version, the function does not detect special characters such as ' ! # etc yet, we're still on progress to improve this point.

(*) Please make sure your words do not reach the character limit, "Maximum of 60 character allowed"

- After adding a rule, you can edit that rule with under Action or you can edit multi-rules at once

Instead of Delete the rule, you can deactivate the rule temporarily so your new translation won't be affected

Case sensitive

If you tick the 'Case-sensitive' option, the app will not make the difference between uppercase and lowercase characters in the content (Text field)


CASE-SENSITIVE ON: The rule will be applied only to the exact word 'Orange', that is distinguished between uppercase and lowercase characters

CASE-SENSITIVE OFF: The rule will be applied to the words 'Orange', 'orange', 'ORANGE' or 'oRangE' etc
