Import your translations all at once
Working with a translator or working with colleagues on your translation? No worries! Easily export your survey, translate the list and upload the list again to add your second (or third and fourth) language.
1 Add your languages
First you're going to add a new language in order that this can be implemented in your export.
E.g.: I want to send my file to a French translator in order that I can upload it easily afterwards. So I'm clicking +Add New Language and fill in the title 'français'.
Tip: I'm adding only 1 language here, but you can also add 4 languages at once.
2 Export your file
Click Export to get your translation file. You'll receive a csv which is easily convertible to Excel. Learn here how to get your Excel file
3 Translate your file
Your csv after convertion or Excel file will look like this:
- The first column contains the link with the item in your survey. You can leave this as it is.
- The second column contains your first language.
- The third column (and fourth or fifth if you have even more languages) is the place where you can add the translation.
Make sure to leave the first row with titles as it is.
4 import your translation file
You've probably edited this as an Excel file, so you're going to save it again as a csv file. Learn here how to do this.
When you've got your csv file you're going to click import.
Save your changes. When your language is completed you'll see the icon after 'Complete Language' has changed.
You import your file, but you don't see the translations when you click 'Edit language' A reason can be that sometimes Excel automatically gives your columns titels of it's own:
Please delete the titles 'column1', 'column2' and 'column3'. The titles 'Label Key', 'Default Language' and your third, fourth language should be the first row in the csv/excel in order that the languages can be stored in the correct place.
