Make built-in course elements, such as buttons and lesson headers, say what you want them to say. Just customize the default text labels in Rise.

Watch Articulate CTO Arlyn Asch demonstrate the label editor in this video, then check out the detailed steps below.

You can edit Rise labels using the on-screen label editor, or you can export a label set, customize it with an XLIFF editor, and import it back into Rise. You’ll learn both methods in this lesson.

Customize Your Labels Using the On-Screen Editor

Step 1: Open the Label Editor

Open the course you want to edit, then click Settings in the upper right corner of the screen and select the Labels tab.

Step 2: Choose a Label Set or Create a New One

To switch all the text labels to a different language or a custom label set, use the drop-down list at the top of the editor to make a selection.

Or, to customize individual text labels, click Create New at the top of the editor to create a new set of text labels, enter a name for your custom labels when prompted, and click OK.

 

Tip: Create a New Label Set When You Need to Customize Text Labels

When you edit text labels, the changes affect all your Rise courses that use the same label set.

For example, if you edit the built-in English label set, every course that uses that label set will automatically get the same changes.

We recommend creating a new label set when you need to customize text labels so you won’t accidentally change the labels in other Rise courses.

To change the name of a label set, just hover over it in the drop-down list and click the pencil icon that appears.

To delete a label set, hover over it and click the garbage bin icon.

 

Step 3: Customize Individual Labels

Enter new text in the Custom Text column for each label you want to change.

Step 4: Close the Label Editor

When you’re done, click Close in the upper right corner to return to your course outline.

Export, Customize, and Import XLIFF Label Sets

This is a great option if you use professional translators, an online translation service, or a computer program to localize content. Export a label set, customize it, then import it back into Rise.

Step 1: Export

Open the course you want to edit, then click Settings in the upper right corner of the screen and select the Labels tab.

Go to the drop-down list at the top of the label editor, hover over a label set, then click the download icon to export the label set to your computer.

 

Tip: Rise Uses XLIFF 1.2

Rise exports XLIFF files, which are special XML files commonly used for translating content.

Rise uses XLIFF version 1.2.

 

Step 2: Customize

After exporting a label set, use a web app, computer program, or professional translation service to edit your XLIFF file (Here’s an example of a free web editor for XLIFF files). 

Step 3: Import

To import your custom labels back into Rise, go to the drop-down list at the top of the label editor, click Upload from XLIFF, and browse to the modified label set on your computer.

When prompted, give your custom label set a name and click OK.

Your new label set will appear in the drop-down list under User Label Sets, and it’ll be available in any Rise course you build.

Step 4: Close the Label Editor

When you’re done, click Close in the upper right corner to return to your course outline.
