It is possible to translate Blueprint the blueprint of a Project project to another language to create a different language version of the same Blueprintblueprint. This is achieved by exporting the Blueprint blueprint in a Trados recognizable format, translating it using the SDL Trados Studio software, and importing it back into the ED ExamDeveloper application. The Blueprint blueprint nodes translated to a specific Language Code language code are available for Questions items when the particular Language Code language code is selected while creating the Questionitem.

  1. Navigate to Manage → Blueprint to open the Create Blueprint page.
  2. Click the Translate button at the bottom.


    In order to be able to translate a Blueprintblueprint, it has to be in the Editable state. See the Add Content topic for details on making a blueprint editable.

  3. The Blueprint blueprint is exported into a ZIP archive file containing files as below:

    1. HTML document containing all the selected Blueprint blueprint as shown below.
      As can be seen above, the HTML file contains the Language Code language code of the Blueprintblueprint, and the node names for various levels. Only the content marked with the red boxes (with a white background) are translated namely: Language Code and node names. The word “Language Code” with a gray background do not appear for translation.
    2. Trados setting file required to import the Blueprint blueprint into Trados.
    3. Trados instruction file containing instructions related to Trados that the user must follow.

      Refer to Translating A Document Using SDL Trados Studio for the translation process.

Once the translation is made using Trados, an HTML file similar to the one which was exported earlier, but with the translated text, is generated by Trados.

  1. Navigate to the Import Blueprint page by clicking the Upload tab on the left or by clicking Upload Blueprint link on the Create Blueprint page. Click the Choose File button under the Select Translated file (*.htm) section.

  2. Browse to the Trados-translated HTML file with Blueprintblueprint, select it, and click the Upload button.
  3. A successful upload results in the red text message.

    A successfully translated and imported Blueprint blueprint is updated if it already exists in the database with the same Language Codelanguage code. It becomes available for items having the new Language Codelanguage code. To view the translated Blueprintblueprint, go to Manage → Blueprint, and select the new Language Code language code from the Blueprint Document Language drop-down.



The import of translated Blueprint blueprint fails and a message in red text is displayed, if the Language Code language code for the language to which the Blueprint blueprint is to be translated, doesn’t exist in the Item Bank.


Items having a Language Code language code with a specific Blueprint blueprint translation can use the Blueprint blueprint translated to that Language Codelanguage code.

Items having a Language Code language code without a specific Blueprint blueprint translation are able to use the default language Blueprint blueprint without translation as seen below.
