Static pages

The simplest form of HTML is a static page. It only contains static elements, such as HTML and CSS. Localization of such a page is similar to data file localization or document localization. Start Soluling and create a new project for your HTML file. The Project Wizard appears, showing the Languages page. Select the target languages and click Finish to complete the wizard. Soluling scans the file, extract strings from the file, and creates a new project for the file. Once you have created the project, you can configure the options. The options specify what elements to scan and how to create the localized HTML file. To configure the file, select it in the project tree and choose Options. Then select the HTML Options sheet.

Select items you want to localize

Click OK to close the Options dialog and then rescan the project.
