File directives for API Service configuration parameters are listed below. Inline directives are not supported.
Markup (HTML tags and formatting) is now supported for VTT translation in the CAT Tool. The file must contain the code of the tags as follows; <b></b> for the Bold tag, <i></i> for the italics tag and <u></u> for the underline tag. Any variations will fail. The translation VTT file will include the tags, unescaped.
|smartling.[directive_name] = [value]|
|Value||id | time_range|
Change the key detection type.
time_range = time range is treated as a key.
ID = cue id or caption will be treated as a key.
If the value is id, but the caption for a cue is not present - the key for the cue is null.
smartling.vtt_key_type = id
smartling.vtt_key_type = time_range
|Value||id | time_range|
Change the variant detection type.
time_range = time range is treated as a variant.
ID = cue id or caption will be treated as a variant.
If the value is id, but the caption for a cue is not present - the variant for the cue is null.
smartling.vtt_variant_type = id
smartling.vtt_variant_type = time_range

The default value is on
A whitespace is any character or series of characters that represent horizontal or vertical space in typography. When rendered, a whitespace character is not a visible mark, but does occupy an area or space on a page.
Although whitespaces are necessary within a string (typically to separate words), unnecessary whitespaces can be found at the start of a string (leading) and at the end of a string (trailing).
With this directive, you can trim whitespaces, as it enables or disables whitespace trim management for the ingested strings.
Whitespace is optionally trimmed from content then re-inserted on download for convenience so that translators do not have to manage the extra spaces. However, content owners may want to retain surrounding whitespace so that translators can manipulate it during translation.
By default, the leading and trailing whitespaces are trimmed.
You can choose to disable trimming or specify trimming for leading or trailing whitespaces.
The directive can be used inline or as the API request parameter.
Smartling will trim leading and trailing whitespaces (default)
Smartling will not trim leading or trailing whitespaces
Smartling will trim only leading whitespaces
Smartling will trim only trailing whitespaces
