Certain source files often contain metadata, or context about certain text fields. This can include information describing what the text is (e.g. titles, names, synopses, etc.), or also additional information that can help translators understand more about the text (e.g. source images, web page URLs, supplemental pages, etc.).
If such metadata exists within the source file, Lilt will display it in the Segment metadata viewer, which is accessible within the Editor's right-hand context panel.
How it works
To view any segment metadata, open the context panel on the Editor's right-hand side, and then select the Segment metadata viewer icon.
You can also click on the green "Metadata available" icon within the segment itself.
- Lilt looks for metadata based on common patterns within files, such as Excel cell locations, JSON keys, web page property types, etc. If your file is highly customized, or provides metadata in an alternate method, that metadata may not show up within Lilt
- If there is no metadata available, Lilt will not display the green 'Metadata available' button. There is no need to check the context panel for each segment.
