In this article you will learn how to translate media files in presono!
Translate a media file
From now on, all media files can be translated in presono - no matter if image, video, PDF or object viewer. If the media file is then used in a Slide, the image is used directly in the translated version in the translation of the Slide. Of course it can be exchanged, but you no longer need a separate element in presono for each translation.
To translate a medium, at least the "Edit" right for the corresponding medium is necessary.
First open the corresponding media file from the Content Structure, in our example we use an image. In the detail view you will now find the button for translating in the upper right corner.
As long as no translation has been created, the medium has not yet been assigned a language. Now click on the desired translation - we will now translate the image into English.
First select the source language, i.e. the language you want the current medium to have.
Then choose the language you want to translate into.
Confirm at the end by clicking on "continue".
Now you can drag the translated image into the gray framed section or click in the section and select an image from your computer. Only one image can be selected. Make sure that the image has the same aspect ratio as the translation. If it is not, a warning will appear and there is a possibility that formatting options in the slides need to be checked afterwards. A translation is only possible with the same file type - so a picture can only be translated with a picture.
Then click on "Save".
Once the image is uploaded, you can switch between translations here in the media detail view. The media can be exchanged/replaced individually, but the categories and descriptions are overlapping.
Use in Slides
If the medium is now used in a Slide, a hint icon appears in the bottom right of the section list that a translated medium is being used in this section.
If you now create a translation for this Slide, the translated media will be inserted automatically, provided it is available in the desired language.
Of course, the image can still be replaced in the translation. At the top option bar also another small note appears that this medium is a translated medium.
Translations can also be managed for media files. You can find more about managing translations here: Managing translated Slides
