make translation primary language / save as new lesson

Postby ayoub » Thu Jun 20, 2013 1:43 am

Hi,

Is there a way to save a translation as a different lesson? Or to overwrite the primary language with the translation (which would amount to the same thing)?

Regards,

Hello,
Hmm, I think the easiest way to do this would be to use the export text option.

1. Create a copy of the lesson.
2. Export the translated text of the Original Lesson.
3. Export the source text of the Copy Lesson.
4. Open both XLS files in Excel.
5. Copy the text from the Original exported text into the cells of the Copy Lesson's XLS. Read through this forum post - viewtopic.php?f=1&t=298&p=952&hilit=spellcheck#p952 - for the warnings on what to select and what not to select (do not overwrite any of the hidden cells!).
6. If needed, adjust any lines cells that are misaligned.
7. Save and re-import the Copy Lesson's text.
8. Delete the Copy Lesson's translation. It is no longer needed.

That ought to do it.
