How to Leave Links and Content Unchanged (Opaque)

The following article applies to Global Delivery Network project types. 

The Smartling service automatically rewrites links for your alternative language sites. For example, your original site might be www.site.com, and your French site might be fr.site.com.

In your original site, your HTML content might appear as follows:

     <div>

          <a href=”http://www.site.com/learn”>Learn </a>

     </div>

By default, on your French site, your HTML content might appear as follows:

     <div>

          <a href=”http://fr.site.com/learn”>Apprendre </a>

     </div>

There are some cases in which you might want a block of HTML to remain completely unchanged, including any links. In this case, you can include a class of “SL_opaque”; for example:

     <div class=”SL_opaque”>

          <a href=”http://www.site.com/learn”>Learn </a>

     </div>

With a class of “SL_opaque,” any HTML inside the opaque element will be rendered exactly as it appears on the original site, including any links. This can be useful for links between your original site and your alternative language site, code samples, or any content you want to appear exactly as on your original site.
