Examples include images (bitmaps, buttons, backgrounds), audio, FLV files, and videos (SWF files). To customize static content for different languages, create new files with translated content.
Dynamic content or localizable content
Examples include text captions, button text, and slide notes, which can be localized in different languages.
When you export the dynamic content of an Adobe Captivate project to an XML file, you can edit and translate content in the objects using the XML file. You can edit and translate many objects, including project properties, the Menu Manager slides and slide information, and so on. You can export audio items only for closed captions.
After exporting project content to XML, you can import it into any other Adobe Captivate project.
Open the XML file, and translate all terms specified in the <source> </source> tags inside the <trans-unit> </trans-unit> tags.
For RTF data (such as text captions), the actual translatable text is present within <g> </g> tags. To change the text to a different language, change the font-family field in css-style attribute, and add the corresponding character set.
Instead of exporting a project to XML, you can publish the project you want to edit and localize. You can then send the content in the XML format to an e-mail address. The XML file is sent as an attachment to the e-mail address. You can also compress the XML file and send it by e-mail.
Ensure that the Adobe Captivate project file is edited before exporting the XML file.
The Info, Blabber, and Skin tool tips are not exported to XML because such information is stored in Flash Authoring Files. After localization, separately create Info, Playbars, and Skin tool tips for the relevant localized version of the Adobe Captivate project.
After translating the content of the XML file to the required language, import the updated XML file into Adobe Captivate. The project content then appears in the required localized language.
You can export preferences set in one Adobe Captivate project and import them into other Adobe Captivate projects. Preferences are exported as an XML file with a .cpr extension. When this file is imported into another Adobe Captivate project, the preferences defined in the file are set.
All preferences in your current project are modified according to those set in the preferences file.
You can delete Adobe Captivate projects (CPTX files) or templates (CPTL) at any time. When you create Adobe Captivate projects and templates, they are saved, by default, to the following locations:
Projects are saved in \My Documents\My Adobe Captivate Projects. If you are using Windows® Vista®, the path is \Users\<Current User>\Documents\My Adobe Captivate Projects.
Templates are saved in \My Documents\My Adobe Captivate Projects\Templates. If you are using Windows Vista, the path is \Users\<Current User>\Documents\My Adobe Captivate Projects\Templates.
