In addition to translating items using SDL Trados Studio, it is also possible to translate them using the Translate Side by Side functionality found on the Search Questions page. The advantage of this translation method is that everything happens within the ExamDeveloper application. Thus, you don’t need to export any file to SDL Trados application and then import the translated file back into ExamDeveloper.

Click the Translate Side by Side button.

Note
The Translate Side by Side button appears only when there is more than one language code in the Item Bank configuration.

 

 

The Translate Questions page opens. The original item is displayed on the left and is not editable. The right side has placeholders of the same item type where you can simply enter the translated text.

Note
When more than one items are selected for Side by Side Translation, you can use the Previous and Next buttons to navigate to the previous or next item from the selection, or jump directly to any of the selected items via the Jump to drop-down list, which lists the Question IDs of all the selected items.

Select the language to you want the question translated to from the Language drop-down list.

Note
The Language drop-down lists all the languages available for the project according to the Item Bank configuration. The language names in which the item translation already exists are grayed out and may not be selected.

...

Once you have entered all the translated text, click Submit to save the translated version and advance to the next item to be translated, or return to the Search Questions page if you had selected only a single item. Otherwise, click Cancel to cancel the translation process and go back to the Search Questions page.

Note
The translated items retain the Question ID, but receive a new language code according to the translation language selection.
Note
If an item with Obsolete state is translated, the new translated item is placed in a Review state.
Note
Only the Project Manager can access the Translate Side by Side functionality.
Note

All the Properties at the bottom of the page for Translate Side by Side functionality are grayed out. All fields are read from the original item properties.

Info

For Fill in the Blank type items, you are not able to view or modify the restrictions. You must modify the restrictions in the source language item, which are then automatically copied to the translated item.

As of the 1909 release, this functionality has moved. You must create a Translate permission and assign it to a user. You must then create a Translate Assignment for the user. Please see the Manual Distribution of Assignments to Users by Manager and Translate Items topics for details on how to create a translate assignment, and then how to translate an item.
