How to Manage Translations (Video)
Adding more languages
You can field your Upsiide study in multiple languages. Below is a step-by-step guide to adding different languages to your Upsiide study.
**It’s best practice to add additional languages to your Upsiide study once your study is finalized in your primary language.**
Include additional languages in your Upsiide study by navigating to the language drop-down menu.
Select Manage Translations
Within Manage Transitions mode, you can:
Add a language. Use the drop-down menu or type the language
Select the study sections to work on
Once you have selected the additional language for your study, your study section will be replicated and waiting for you to insert your translations.
Using the Batch Edit translation feature
If you have your text translations already prepared for your study sections, you can upload them using the Batch Edit feature. This feature will download a CSV file for you to fill in the translations and upload into Upsiide.
Click on the Batch Edit button in the top right corner of the Manage Translations section.
Select the Yes, ready to translate button in the bottom right corner.
A new dialogue will appear. In the Download tab, find your study's section that you want to translate and click Download CSV.
When you open your downloaded CSV file, you will see several fields as headers in the Excel sheet. These fields represent a text area of the section you are translating (e.g., ‘fr_CA-label’ is the French CA question label text area). It is here where you can populate/paste in your translations for text fields.
Once you have finished populating your translations in the worksheet:
Save your file. (It should save automatically as a CSV file.)
Upload the edited CSV file by toggling to the Upload tab (beside the Download tab) and navigating to the correct study section that your translations apply to click on CHOOSE FILE.
Once you have uploaded your study section translations, they should be visible in the manage translations environment.
Using Google Translate
If you need help with your text translations, you can use the Google Translate feature within Upsiide to translate your study.
Click on the three dots in the top right corner of the language banner above the replicated section.
Here you will be able to select to either delete or Translate with Google. Click on translate with google and the study section text will be translated with Google Translate.
Preview your Translations before fielding your study
To preview your study translations before fielding click on the language drop-down menu in the top ribbon while in 'create' mode and select the language you would like to preview.
Once you've selected the language you'd like to preview your study in then click on the preview icon (eye-shaped icon) to the right.
Removing a language from your study
If you want to delete any languages within your study, click on the three ellipses beside the language you don’t need within Manage translations mode and then click 'Delete':
Do not delete the primary language that you selected when setting up the study. This language is anchored to the study set-up and must stay in the study.
