translator metadata

You can declare translator metadata to document who translated the content of the webpage from a source language into the published language. This is meant for translations between human languages such as English and Esperanto, not for translations between markup languages such as Aneamal or HTML.


@ translator: Wilhelm von Humboldt


translator metadata has no known relevance besides crediting the translator in the code of a webpage. Search engines are unlikely to use it. It is therefore probably redundant to declare it, if you are both the original author and translator of a file. An author metadata declaration is preferred then. Declaring both is valid though.

For developers

If translator metadata is declared, the Aneamal Translator adds a meta element with the name translator to the HTML output. Hence the above example becomes:

<meta name='translator' content='Wilhelm von Humboldt'>
