How do I manage text growth/shrinkage when it displays on my website?

The following article applies to the Global Delivery Network project type.

If your source strings are in English, text in the various locales may grow or shrink (typically ~30%) and fail to display correctly.


In these cases, try one of the following (in priority order):


  1. Add a line break to the translation.

  2. Adjust the Cascading Style Sheet (CSS) for the page. You can change font size for specific locales (or globally) or you can adjust the padding.

  3. Have a front end designer/engineer adjust the design of the page.
