Plug-Ins: "Transfer Filenames"

Title: Transfer Filenames

Compatibility: 7.5.x


  • Although the CMS already has a function to take over filenames to all language variants, it is of no use if you want to translate the filenames to match your SEO strategy. And going through a whole project to set them by hand is a terrible job. This plugin allows you to export all filenames of a language variant to an XML file, translate them and insert them back to another language variant with just a few clicks.

Although the CMS already includes a function to transfer the filenames of a language variant to all languages, this plugin – quite similar to the “Transfer RedDot Descriptions” plugin – takes you a step further: All filenames are exported to an XML file which then can be translated to any other language before importing them back into the CMS.

It’s not only a matter of “nicer looking” filenames, but it’s also a serious issue in a project’s SEO strategy: You can translate important keywords in your filename for better search engine rankings for each of your language variants.
