Be familiar with the tags/syntax of the programming language(s) Aug 15, 2019

Hi Husam,

In order to learn how to translate a text embedded in code, you need to be familiar with the tags and syntax of the programming languages. It takes a bit of time, but that is the first step. Once you get to know them, you will be able to identify the code, the text and the placeholders easily.

For example, in HTML, text is normally enclosed within an opening tag and a closing tag:

<h1>HELLO WORLD<\h1> (h = header)
<p>This

Hi Husam,

In order to learn how to translate a text embedded in code, you need to be familiar with the tags and syntax of the programming languages. It takes a bit of time, but that is the first step. Once you get to know them, you will be able to identify the code, the text and the placeholders easily.

For example, in HTML, text is normally enclosed within an opening tag and a closing tag:

<h1>HELLO WORLD<\h1> (h = header)
<p>This is an example.</p> (p = paragraph)

In another language such as PHP, text appears within "":

<?php
$cars=array("house","door","window");
echo "I like " . $cars[0] . ", " . $cars[1] . " and " . $cars[2] . ".";
<?>

Here, "house", "door" and "window" would be the text to translate. <?php and ?> are the tags that close the piece of PHP code, $cars is a variable that stores unsorted elements and echo is a command for printing on screen. Basically, when you run that piece of code, you will see this on screen "I like house, door and window".

A really good website for learning code is https://www.w3schools.com. I would recommend you to start with HTML and then move to PHP, Java or Python.

I hope this helps!
