I have several Forms Pro Surveys that I will be translating to multiple other languages. I have already translated all of the English text to the other languages in an excel file. Is there an easier way (than hundreds of copy/paste steps) to push the translated text back into the Form? I was expecting/hoping there is an entity in the CDS where I could upload/push the translated text to, but I can't find where the translated text is stored in any entity.

 

Any ideas or suggestions?

Hi @jfeath

 

It's early days so there's no way to push things back from the Excel into the Form at present nor a backend way to connect via CDS that I know of.

 

Unfortunately, you'll have to update the questions manually one at a time for now until Forms Pro evolves to include more advanced options like this.

 

Cheers and best wishes
