Quoted text should be scrubbed of formatting when translated

discourse-translator 0.2.0
discourse v2.4.0.beta1 +234
Microsoft API

When the posts to be translated contains quotes it looks like the raw text including formatting is sent to the API. This breaks the functionality of the plugin.

So what’s the status of this issue?

Not fixed, but I would like to see this improved.

The correct process here is a bit tricky.

We would need to hoist out all sorts of blocks (like quotes, code blocks), then strip out html tags, translate and finally reconstruct the html.

I estimate there are a few days in a proper fix here.

@codinghorror did you want us to slot this or just put a pr-welcome on this?

#pr-welcome is fine for this
