Ticket: Auto-translating RTE Field simplifies links

Have link in RTE - work just fine in default language but if you translate the RTE both are affected in ways that are unhelpful.

In the default language it looks like this:

<a data-bs-target="#modalDropshipping" data-bs-toggle="modal" href="{site_url}ecommerce#">plataformas de dropshipping</a>

If I auto-translate this to another language (e.g. english) the resulting link looks like this:

<a href="{site_url}ecommerce#">dropshipping platforms</a>

As you can see the data-* attributes have been removed from the translated version of the link. In this instance (the link opens a modal) this has the effect of ‘breaking’ the link.

I am guessing this is a DeepL quirk, have not tried to see if Google is any better - but is an unhelpful / unnnecessary change.

My guess is this is a DeepL issue…. Not sure I can do much about that.

I think I’ve found out what this is: I think it is a quirk in the ‘retranslate this entry’ operation.
I think what was happening is that ‘retranslate’ uses a (presumably) cached copy of the text that was *originally* translated from when that first happened, not from the current state of the default text. When I deleted the translation and then made a new one the attributes were carried through to the translated version.
