Regarding putting in all languages or not, there There are competing interests which you have to balancemust be balanced in regards to entering in languages. On one hand, having all languages in the question Item bank makes it easy to manage and control the edits made to each language. On the other hand, your question the Item bank is quickly going to get very large quickly, and certain . Certain functionality may slow down a bit if you have too many questions in there be slowed as a result of a large Item bank (e.g., searching or exporting the question Item bank). It will still be usable, but may be slower than you're used to.In addition, each

Each time you want to build collections, examsexam forms, or create assignments in the system, remember to ALWAYS always specify a language criteria in the searches, otherwise it will pull up not only the English questions, but also the . If a language criteria is not specified, search results display default language items as well as items  of other languages.

Note

Using the alternative method above, you can manage the different languages in ExamDeveloper without them cluttering up your question Item bank. Please note that you lose the ability to search the bank for a specific question item in a different language, see who changed it, and when. However, if the same people users usually edit the various languages, you probably don't need that function anyway.

 

the function is probably not of much use.

Note

Exam forms for the other languages, including default language, must be built in the Build Exam page in order to keep all items in the Item bank. Search for “Metadata – Language contains” and “Question ID Between” with the language code you want to use.
