Introducing Inline Transferer — a mechanism that handles the transfer of elements identified as inlines (HTML tags) from a source sentence to a translated target sentence. The goal of the Inline Transferer mechanism is to fully automatically transfer the inlines from the source sentence to the translated target sentence at correct positions. Thus, the translator only concentrates on translating the meaningful content of the text. The Inline Transferer relieves the translator of the technical and time-consuming process of copying nontranslatable elements from the source sentence to the translation.

Takeaways: Attendees know that inserting HTML tags and other inline elements manually is a tedious process. They will learn that modern software can handle this process for them.
