Translating Variables

To use variables that can be translated into other languages, set up a variable set and add the text (translatable) type of variables. When you have added the variables, add languages for each variable and then export the variable set so that it can be sent for translation.


Only translatable variables can be sent for translation. If you have text variables, you can convert them into translatable variables in the variable set editor.

  1. Open the options menu for the Variable sets library in the Content Manager and select Create variable set. Name the variable set. Click the variable set you just created, and it will take you to the Variable set view.

  2. Select Add variable, choose Text (translatable) and click the check-mark.

  3. Enter the variables you need translated in your default language, then select Add language to choose what languages you need the translation in. 



    You can choose any language that is available for your Paligo instance. If the language you need is unavailable, it can be added by a Paligo administrator. To find out more, see Selecting Languages.

  4. Export the variable set for translation, and open the file in the translation software you're using. (Or send to your translation provider.)


    Once translated, zip/compress each translated language to be able to import it to Paligo. For example, if you have Swedish, Italian and Danish, you need to zip each file individually and upload them one at a time.

  5. Select Import translation, choose the translated file and click Upload.


    The translations have now been added.
