Activity localization lets you quickly create locale-specific, or localized, versions of a learning activity for the languages you support. Localized versions are created as children of the parent activity they are based on and feature a subset of activity properties available for content translation.

This article walks you through adding a localized version of an activity and gives an overview of managing localized versions in the platform.


Things to Note:

  • Activity localization is enabled for Versioning accounts with at least one active locale.
  • While scheduled activities are supported in localization workflows, events connected to a scheduled activity are not currently supported.

Add a Localized Version of an Activity


The locale drop-down menu in the versioning header gives you the option to add a localized version of an activity.

You can create a localized version of an activity for each active language locale in your account.

Follow these steps to create a localized version of an activity:

  1. Open the locale drop-down menu in the versioning header.
  2. Select Add New Locale.
  3. Select an active locale from the locales list.
  4. Click Add Locale.
  5. A localized version of the activity is created and ready to be translated.

Manage Locale-Specific Versions


When you create a localized version of an activity, a parent-child relationship is created between the original, parent locale and a localized version, or child locale.

Select the locale drop-down if you need to return to the original, parent locale or to switch a different child locale.

Once a new child locale is added, the parent locale is highlighted by a star icon in the locale drop-down.

Each child locale can be managed independently in the versioning workflow. Meaning each child locale is created as a Draft activity that can be published independently of the original, parent locale.

Once a child locale is added, the original Parent locale gives you the option to bulk publish updates to multiple locales.
