Translating Composica Courses

Composica developers, listen up! Our global market dictates a high demand for being able to translate courses into a multitude of languages. Many training developers engage in a time-consuming and expensive process, often involving many third-party resources to accomplish this. And, frequently without satisfactory results. Enough is enough.

Did you know that you can easily translate your Composica courses without affecting your source file? And, all you need is a translation application (several of which you can find online for free) to edit the translation file exported directly out of Composica? No fooling. And, it doesn't take a lot of extra work and can save you money too.

Here are the steps to get you started:

1. Open your project/course in Composica.

2. Select a document page to open in Design View.

3. Select the Project menu option.

4. Click the Translations icon along the ribbon.

5. In the dialog that displays, click Export Text and save the translation file.

6. Open/edit/save the exported translation file in your own translation editing application.

7. Go back into the dialog in Composica where you originally exported the translation file and click Upload.

8. Select and upload the translation file you just edited.

9. Once the file is uploaded, make sure it is selected and click Apply. Then, select an option to either publish the course directly (with the translation) without affecting the source file or to create a duplicate source project file to work in.
