Coming soon to ExamDeveloper 

Translate Questions permission and Translate Assignments

Available from1909 (approximately September 2019)
Rollout paceFull rollout - users will have immediate visibility as a result of upgrade
Last updated 

Currently ExamDeveloper the only way to give a user translator permissions is to assign them as Project Manage. This gave them too many permissions that could include editing the original item along with all other items. To avoid this we are enhancing ExamDeveloper so that Translators can create translated items without full permissions to the application. With the enhancement:

  • A new Translate Questions permission is added to the Create Roles page.
  • Project Managers will be able to:
    • Create Translator roles with this new permission and assign it to various users.
    • Create Translate assignments for the translators - who can work on specific translate assignments.
    • Configure email notifications for Translate assignments and allow translators to view their translated (submitted) items.
  • Translators will see a new Translator tab on the ExamDeveloper landing page and a new Translate link under the Develop Questions tab.
    • Translator users will be able to do translation using the Side-by-side translation page similar to what they are currently using.
    • Based on the project settings, translators will have access to their translated items.
  • Translate assignments will work similar to Write, Review, and Validate assignments.
  • After this change Project Managers will not have the ability to perform Translate Side-by-Side from the Manage → Project Bank page. In order to perform the Translate Side-by-Side action, users must be assigned the Translate Question permission and they must be assigned a Translate assignment.

  • Users will not be able to remove an item or case from the current project if it is editable. They will see an error if this is attempted.

  • A user will still be able to make the item or case editable in a new project; doing so will also continue to make the item viewable in the old project.

  • Users will still be able to remove an item or cases from the current project if it is viewable. Furthermore, it will now be possible to remove the item from the default ‘itembank’ project.
  • Making items and cases editable, viewable or removing them from projects will no longer also share them automatically into the default ‘itembank’ project (this will now need to be a manual action.)

Note: this change will have no impact on sharing exams, sections, or collections, etc.
