When you deal with an international audience, you need to provide a customized onboarding experience in your end-users language. Clustdoc allows you to do this very easily.
Differentiating a translation from an adaptation
A translation is a rendering from one language to another, while an adaptation makes a text culturally appropriate, accurate, and therefore understandable.
Here is a dummy example showing you the difference between translation and adaptation.
In our English process, one of the steps is 'Filling out a W2 form', which we would just translate into French if we were to target French people living in US.
However, if we wanted to create a French version of our process (for French people), we'd need adaptation since the W2 form doesn't exist in France.
|Step in english (source)
|Step adapted to France
|Checklist step translated
|Fill out W2 Form
|Fill out 4567 Form
|Remplir le formulaire W2
Before translating your process, make sure you confirm the requirements, so you can take the best decision between translating or adapting.
Translating a process using browsers
If you want a literal translation of your current process, chances are that your visitors browsers will display a translated version of the page based on their browser language. If this option works for you, you can rely on that to offer a translated version of your process.
Translating or adapting a process using Clustdoc
In case you want to handle yourself the translated version of your process or even go further with adaptation, Clustdoc can help! Let see how you can translate your process yourself.
- Go to your Resources>Processes page to create a new process
- Select the process you already have and duplicate it
- In case you have toolbox items, make sure you duplicate them as well
