The Markdown Filter is an Okapi component for extracting translatable text from Markdown files. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Markdown for more information about the format. Markdown is a family of formats, not all of them mutually compatible. This filter is designed to work with markdown based on the CommonMark specification, with additional features to support GitHub-flavored Markdown.
The filter decides which encoding to use for the input file using the following logic:
If the file has a Unicode Byte-Order-Mark: Then, the corresponding encoding (e.g. UTF-8, UTF-16, etc.) is used. Otherwise, the input encoding used is the default encoding that was specified when setting the filter options.
The filter attempts to convert inline formatting to codes and block-level formatting to document park/skeleton content.
The Inline Code Finder can be used to handle convert additional types of formatting to inline codes, as necessary.
- Translate URLs
- By default, URLs in link and image statements are not exposed for translation. If this option is enabled, they will be extracted. Note: URLs are currently extracted inline in their containing segment, rather than as a subflow.
- The filter does not currently have a configuration UI in Rainbow.
