Transcribe Documentation


Variables are little words and/or phrases throughout your website that need to be translated when the language changes.

To begin creating Variables for Transcribe, select the language and site from the Languages box to define where these new variables will be assigned. Click View to update that info.

When creating a new variable, you will need to assign a name to it and the translated content that will be associated. Click Add Row to continue adding new variables. If you've already created variables in other languages, you can select them from the drop-down instead of writing it into the textfield.

When you are done adding variables, click Save to save everything.

To use the variables you've just created in your templates, you can use the Transcribe translate or replace tag:

<a href="#">{exp:transcribe:replace name="nav_home"}</a>
<a href="#">{exp:transcribe:translate name="nav_home"}Home{/exp:transcribe:translate}</a>
