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.

- Use the Search filters to retrieve the desired items.
- Select the desired item check boxes on the left.

- You can only modify the following parts of the item being translated on the right hand side: Language, Question Stem, Distractors, and Submit on Behalf of. These parts of the item are indicated with red boxes in the above screenshot.
