Localizations are used to offer a workflow, step, or page (information, form, or survey) in multiple languages.
When offering an item in multiple languages, users will need to...
- Be ready to provide the translation. There are no canned translations available in HRCenter Admin.
- Create a unique survey and form for every language you wish to offer the survey/form in. For example, if you need to offer a math test in English and Spanish, the test will need to be created twice in the survey builder - once in English and once in Spanish.
- Tie the translated pages together. When creating a page from a survey/form with localizations, users will need to state a localization has been created for this item and tie said localization to the new page.
PART ONE: Example of Creating a Localization in HRCenter Admin:
Below we have an example of creating a localization for a math test.
Step 1: From the surveys section of HRCenter Admin, we have created a "Math Test" survey in both English and Spanish (by selecting the New button in the upper right). Note that the same question(s) is asked in both surveys - they are in fact a mirror of each other.
Step 2: Turn the survey into a page. From the pages section of HRCenter Admin, we select the New button to create a page:
Step 3: When creating the new page, we select one version (language) from the list. At the very bottom of the page, users will see an add localization button, select this to tie the second version (language) to the page you are creating. Following our example we have selected the (1.) Math Test (English) and added a (2.) Spanish localization by tying the Exámen de matemáticas to the Math Test.
PART TWO: Example of Assigning a Localized Page to an Employee:
when inviting an employee to complete a new page from Enterprise, select the (1.) language for the page.
*Note- If the page has not yet been created with a localization/translation, selecting a different language from the dropdown will not provide a translation. See part one of this article for help.
Next, select the page that includes, in this example, the Spanish translation. Following our example, we will (2.) assign the English/Spanish Math Exam.
Select Finish when done.
When the user logs in, the default welcome text will be listed in Spanish:
Additionally, the Spanish version of the exam will be listed:
