Standard phrases in multiple languages
You can enter translations of standard phrases used in conditional substitution character styles. When you apply a Look that contains a conditional substitution character style, UNICOM Intelligence Interviewer - Paper automatically inserts the text in the document's language, provided it exists in that language. However, grammar differences between languages mean that there is not always a one-to-one relationship between the different language texts. Therefore, you might need to combine two or more conditional substitution character styles when you are creating phrases for other languages.
For example, suppose you want to create the following standard text for numeric questions:
Give answer in the range 1 - 16
In English, you can create this phrase using one conditional substitution character style, the insertion styles for range minimum and range maximum, and a conditional display character style for the hyphen. In the Look, it would be:
Placeholder # - #
The placeholder is in the conditional substitution style mr Numeric Range Text, the first number sign is in the insertion style mr Range Minimum, the hyphen is in the conditional display style mr Is Range, and the second number sign is in the insertion style mr Range Maximum.
In English, all of the text can be inserted using one conditional substitution style. To give the same meaning in German, the phrase would read:
Antwort zwischen 1 - 16 eingeben
In German, the applied character styles are the same up to the range maximum value. However, German requires the word eingeben after the range, and you must create an additional conditional substitution character style to place after the range. Enter eingeben for the text in German and leave the English text blank. In the Look, create the following:
Placeholder1 # - # Placeholder2
The first placeholder is in a conditional substitution style that has both English and German texts, and the second placeholder is in the new conditional substitution style, for which you only entered text in German. When you apply the Look to an item in a German questionnaire, the resulting phrase is Antwort zwischen 1 - 16 eingeben. When you apply the Look to an item in an English questionnaire, the resulting phrase is Give answer in the range 1 - 16.
