Creating course with support for 5 languages
I'm on the verge of a huge project involving product training evolving around 5 different languages (English, German, Spanish, Portugese, French - all spoken audio). I'm looking for best practise in this regard.
Here's what I plan to do:
One opening slide where the user chooses his/her preferred language (variable)
Suggestion A: A layer corresponding to the chosen layer opens up on each slide, and audio for the chosen language is placed here (synchronized with the master timeline).
Suggestion B: The audio for the chosen language is placed on the base layer of each slide. Audio is cut up into small pieces, so whenever an animation is played or a picture appears, you automatically progress to a new slide. This eliminates any syncing problems.
"Prev" & "Next" buttons appear in English. Possibly hide these on all slides and create custom ones with state based on chosen language.
Possibly hide menu and create a custom one which opens in lightbox - state changes based on chosen language.
Any thoughts or pointers? AM I heading ion the right direction or will this end up a total mess?
