Using Auto-Translate to create language Variations of a Parent Course

Auto-Translate can be used to quickly build Variations of a Parent Project without the need for translation by an external agency or your internal translation team. Instead, your Variations are created and automatically localized using machine translation, saving you time and money on your translation process.

For more information about Auto-Translate and the languages that can be used with it, see Feature Focus: Auto-Translate. We would also recommend reading our best practice guide for using Auto-Translate to ensure you get the most out of this feature.

To learn more about Parent and Variation Projects and how they work with translation, see Feature Focus: Parent Courses and Variations.
