Translate a skill

Platform admins and translators can translate skills.

If you’ve been added as a translator, click the button TRANSLATE SKILLS in the notification email you received to access the translation interface.

You can also access the translation interface by following the following steps:

  1. At the top of the homepage, click Skills.
  2. At the top right, click plus.svg.
  3. In the Skills section, click Translate.

Under the Translate tab, you can see the Reference content (in gray, which cannot be edited) on the left, and the Translated content (which you can edit) on the right.

From here, you can translate the skills in the Translated content block. All changes are instantly saved when you click outside the text field.

If you want to make the language available to Learners directly after translating the contents, toggle on the Available option at the top right of the Translated content section.

  1. At the top of the homepage, click Skills.
  2. At the top right, click plus.svg.
  3. In the Skills section, click Manage languages.
  4. Under the Available column, enable the language.

If the skills are available in the learner's profile language, they will be displayed in that language. Otherwise, they will be displayed in the default language.
