How to Manage Language Translation

The ability to translate languages directly in your LMS is very useful if you want to quickly change any textual part of your platform (i.e. the name of a menu item, tab, button or description).

In order to edit a translation, you must select the hamburger icon, as shown in the picture below.

Once you’ve chosen a module, find the word you want to change in the list. You can also find the text through the “search” feature, after typing a few letters or words included in the phrase.

You can edit the word in the Translation field by simply clicking on the word in it’s row. A pop up box will appear, allowing you to edit the translation.
