📝 markdown-translation

📚 Sections

👋 Introduction

Hey, There! 🤙🏼

Are you tired of copying and pasting your markdown content into translation tools, seeing markdown syntax instead of translatable text and collisions?

Say no more! 👌

With markdown-translation, you can easily generate a skeleton and xlf for CATs, and translate your content on the go! 🚀

🌟 Project Overview

🚀💻 This library got you covered with two API interfaces: extract and compose. 💻🚀

Extract text from markdown files 📄 and generate a skeleton/XLF file. 🧑‍💻

Compose the extracted text with the translations from the XLF file to create the translated markdown file. 🌎📄💬

Say goodbye to manual translation work and streamline your workflow with markdown-translation! 🤖💪

🎯 Purpose and Scope

🤯 Hold on to your hats, folks! This library is tackling some serious problems with markdown translations!

🚫 Say goodbye to unnecessary heavy load on translators caused by naive approaches that include markdown syntax constructs into text segments.

💥 And don't even get us started on "collisions" - yikes! But fear not, this library has got your back with a reliable solution for extracting text content from markdown without those pesky collisions.

🕵️‍♀️ How? By parsing and rendering xlf and skeleton, of course! So sit back, relax, and let this library handle all your markdown translation needs.

🧑‍💻 Say goodbye to those pesky issues and hello to efficient and accurate translations with markdown-translation!
