In July 2020, the Author view was made part of the Administrator view, and no longer appears as a standalone view option. Admins with authoring permissions now select the Administrator view > Courses screen. From here they can build and edit courses and review learner reports.

By default, your course (both the interface and the content) is set up to be easily localized.

Change the interface language

Click the globe (language) icon in the toolbar and select the desired language. This translates the interface content for all views. If you do not see the icon, translation has not been enabled on your site. 

Translate video transcripts

  1. Select the Administrator view.
  1. Open the Courses screen and click the Edit button next to the the course you want to translate.  
  2. Select the video in the table of contents.
  3. Scroll to the Video card.
  4. Open the globe (language) dropdown, and select the desired language.
  1. The automatic translation needs to be reviewed and edited for precision and accuracy.
  2. Repeat for all videos.

Translate course interactions and content

You must manually translated all remaining course content, including section titles, interactions, and directions.

  1. Select the Administrator view.
  1. Open the Courses screen and click the Edit button next to the the course you want to translate.  
  2. Find and translate all section titles, interactions, and directions in the course. Learn more about authoring and editing courses.
