Export and import translations without MS Office

Jun 12, 2020


My organization does not support MS Office anymore, we only use Google products and I seem unable to export Word translation files from Storyline to my computer because Storyline cannot connect with MS Word.

In addition, when trying to import translations, I convert my Google Doc to a .docx file but Storyline only recognizes .doc files and therefore I also get stuck when trying to move forward on this step.

Is Articulate planning on integrating Google Docs so that MS Office is not required to translate courses? Or/and is there a plan to allow .docx files to be imported into Storyline apart from .doc and .xlf files?

I know that there is also the option of .xlf, however I cannot open this type of file in my computer and view it in case of needing to review and edit items in the translation.

Many thanks in advance!

Hi Amaia,

I’m sorry you’ve been experiencing some issues with translating your Storyline course.

Right now, there isn’t a way to export your translation file to Google Doc. It sounds like having other options for the translation file would help improve your workflow when authoring in Storyline. I would love for you to share more details with our team here

In regards to XLIFF files, I wanted to share some community threads that point to some tools that I hope will help. Even though they are Rise 360 threads, they should work for Storyline as well:

Please reach out if I can help with anything else!
