File Import Settings


Content is machine translated from English by Phrase Language AI.

Limits may be applied to .YAML files. Only string data is imported, while keys with only numeric values are ignored. Put numbers in quotation marks to import keys with only numeric values.

File Types

  • .YAML

  • .YML

Import Options

  • Parse ICU messages

    ICU messages are automatically converted to tags. Files with ICU messages cannot contain any inline elements.

  • Use HTML subfilter 

    Imports HTML tags contained in the file. Tags can then be used with HTML File Import Settings.

  • Use Markdown subfilter

    When this option is enabled, some Markdown file import settings will take precedence over YAML settings. For example, the regexp to Convert to Phrase tags should be specified in the Markdown settings, as the one set for .YAML will have no effect.

  • Update language declaration in completed files

    Replace the root element containing the source language with target language code in completed .YAML files.

    Supported codes:

  • Convert to Phrase TMS tags 

    Apply regular expressions to convert specified text to tags.

  • Import specific keys only (use regexp)

  • Exclude specific values (use regexp)

  • Context note

    Matching content is displayed in context notes.

  • Context key

    Specify a context key that is saved with the segment to the translation memory and used for match context.
