Any suggestions for translating learning game components?

Posted Wednesday, April 20, 2011 at 9:41 AM  

I am in the process of localizing a Learning Game to Thai, but I am not having much success.  I can change the question, answer and feedback text, but I have yet to discover how to change the directions and labels within the game itself.

 

Any suggestions?

 

Thanks,

Hi Sherry,

 

It's not possible to use non-western languages in a Learning Game. For full language support I would look to use Quizmaker '09. I know that the learning games aren't necessarily the same as Quizmaker so you might have to rethink how you are setting things up.

Hi Justin,

 

So, learning games can be done in Spanish and French? I have tried it in the past and had issues with special characters not being supported. Can you tell me how to do it?

 

Thanks!

Hi Marie,

 

Articulate has limited support for additional languages in learning games.  See the image below for an example:

 

Any text that you insert will show up correctly.  However, you won't be able to translate certain features of the slide.

I experience that people react very positive on the learning games and because of the fact they are easy to add , I would know a possibilty to change these texts of the components...

Isn't there any possibility to translate these components at all?

Hi Erwin & welcome to Heroes,

 

The only items that can't be changed are the ones marked in red boxes in my previous posts.  The actual question and answers can be any language.

Hi Brain, Thank you for your welcome.

I know, but my question is if there is no way whatsoever to change the text in the red boxes too. (now or in the future?)

also color changes would be great.

I like the learning games a lot because of the easy of integration in the presenter course, and it does not have to load a lot.

I also like the word quiz a lot and I don't think it's available in the quiz maker is it?

 

I hope that complete translation of the component would be possible somehow now or in the future...

Hi Erwin,

 

Unfortunately, it's not currently possible to change the options in those red boxes.  However, if you'd like to see support for translating learning games in the future, please submit a feature request to us by using the link below:
