Attributes

login-input = Predefined value
    .placeholder = example@email.com
    .aria-label = Login input value
    .title = Type your login email

UI elements often contain multiple translatable messages per one widget. For example, an HTML form input may have a value, but also a placeholder attribute, aria-label attribute, and maybe a title attribute.

Another example would be a Web Component confirm window with an OK button, Cancel button, and a message.

In order to prevent having to define multiple separate messages for representing different strings within a single element, FTL allows you to add attributes to messages.

This feature is particularly useful in translating more complex widgets since, thanks to all attributes being stored on a single unit, it's easier for editors, comments, and tools to identify and work with the given message.

Attributes may also be used to define grammatical properties of terms. Attributes of terms are private and cannot be retrieved by the localization runtime. They can only be used as selectors.
