Configuring Advanced Settings in the User Interface

In the Advanced Settings page, you can configure advanced Connector settings. To open the Advanced Settings page, click Admin Tools > Advanced Settings in the Lionbridge Connector rail.

The advanced Connector settings are organized into the following sections:

Section Description For Detailed Configuration Instructions, See...
Translation Status You can create a page property to store custom translation-status values that are attached to individual pages, for example MT (for machine translation) or HT (for human translation). After you associate a custom value with a translation provider (LSP), you can view this value for translated pages in the page list of the Globalization Tool. Creating a Page Property to Store Custom Translation-Status Values
Prevent Translation of Pages You can prevent the Connector from sending pages with certain properties for translation. Preventing the Translation of Pages
Prevent URL Conversions If either or both of the Language Conversion (URL Reference) and Language Conversion (Content Link) options are configured in the Translation Settings section of the Configuration page, as described in Translation Settings, you can prevent the Connector from converting links to specific files or file types. Preventing Specific URL and Content-Link Conversions
Skip Translation with Local TM You can configure which components, or property names of components, will be ignored by the local TM (translation memory) when users send content for translation with the Use Local TM option. This setting prevents the Connector from using any previous translations of the specified components that are stored in the local TM. Skipping Translations in the Local TM
