Avendoo® online documentation

Translation management

Via the translation area you can create further language versions for learning units. International companies employ often employees with different mother tongues. To avoid creating new learning units for each language, you can create language versions in the translation area. Thus only the translation of the content is necessary; buttons and instructions are automatically adjusted by Avendoo®. See for further information: Selection of the language.

Wherever you see the translation icon , you can create a new language version. Via click on that icon the translation area opens.
