    Excluding properties and document types doesn't seem to work

    We've trying to exclude properties from translation, and have configured a translation set to exclude properties like this:


    And also set "ignore doctypes" to the document type which has these properties:


    So propertyAlias1 is a property on documentTypeAlias.

    However, when viewing a submitted translation job we can still see the properties on a document in the job.

    The document being sent to translation has this structure:

    Page > Nested content property > Document > Picked document

    The name of the property when viewing the translation job looks like:

    Nested Content Property [1] Document [1] Property To Exclude

    The exclusion configuration was done after the translation set was created.

    Are we doing something wrong? Or are the properties somehow ignored even though they are visible on the job?

    Hi Per,

    Unfortunately the exclude properties options only work on top level properties (e.g things that are not nested or in grid's etc).

    If the property you want to exclude is a textbox or textstring value we do have a set of replacement property editors you can use that will not be picked up by the translation process.

    these are drop in replacements for textbox or textstring - any property using these will not be picked up by translation.

    if its something more complex (like rich text or a custom thing) you don't want picking up then i can be done with custom code, but it would be very specific to how your site would be setup.

    Thank you. That's interesting.

    What about the document-type-level "ignore doctypes" exclusion? Is it correct that it would not take effect in my scenario, and can you describe a scenario where it would take effect?
