Entering text for additional languages and contexts
Once you have added a new language or context to your questionnaire file, you can enter question and response text for that language or context (question and response names remain the same for all languages and contexts).
To enter text for a language, it is recommended that you use the Translation Utility, which has facilities to support entering text for different languages and for displaying multiple languages and contexts at the same time. However, it is possible to enter texts for different languages using UNICOM Intelligence Author. You can use UNICOM Intelligence Author to enter the text for different contexts; for long questionnaires where the text is substantially different in each context. you might prefer to use Translation Utility.
To enter text for additional languages or contexts
1 Add the language or context to your questionnaire file: see Adding and removing languages or Adding and removing contexts.
2 In the UNICOM Intelligence Author window, select the language or context from the list in the Set Language and Context toolbar, or from the menu option View > Set Language/Set Context.
The Design pane changes to display the selected language or context. As you have not yet added any texts for this, the question and response text are blank (unless you have defined any alternatives for the language or context). If you have defined alternatives, the text from the alternative language or context is displayed instead. For more information, see Defining alternative texts for languages or contexts.
3 For each question or response, place the cursor in the text field and type the text for the language or context. If the field contains text from an alternative language or context, select the text and delete it, then enter the new text.
4 If you want to add new questions, remember to switch back to the original language or context.
