We have a questionnaire that is almost final. We have now exported the translation excel sheet and sent it for translation. In the mean time, what changes can I make to the questionnaire without breaking the import of the sheet? Can I:
- Add Questions
- Change text of the questions/ categories
- Delete Question
Anything else that will break the import?
- is really the worst in my opinion - technically the import will not break - the translations are linked to the source using question/object’s id, so everything will look ‘fine’ but you will end up with the situation that your translation (that was based on the old text) will not correspond to the modified text you have currently, and unless you have a good testing stage where someone is specifically looking for discrepancies in the translation in the final questionnaire, you won’t catch this error.
Changing the structure of questionnaire, while translating is fine, but you should not modify the text (meaning) while someone else is translation (offline)
I agree. Its easy to miss these discrepancies even with a testing phase.
This is helpful! Thank you.
