Overview

For multi-language applications, UserGuiding has text support enabled for all languages and scripts available within modern browsers.

In 6 short steps, you can create multilingual content such as guides and show them to their target audience.

Here's how to go about it!

Step 1 - Create your guide

To begin, create your guide in your primary language.

Step 2 - Duplicate your guide

You can duplicate as many times as you wish for however many languages you want to translate your guides too!

Here's a tip: To make things easier, name each guide based on the language you hope to translate them, and don't forget to save!

Step 3 - Translate

Manually translate and edit the text on each guide in your target language. This is a crucial part of our process!

Step 4 - Edit and select the relevant theme

To translate the text in your proceeding buttons, you have to create a new theme or duplicate an existing one! To not get them confused, it would be a good idea to name them distinctively. Make sure to save them and select this theme in your correlating guides' settings.

Now, we can translate our buttons.

Step 5 - Segment your guides

To make sure your guides are visible to the right audience, you need to segment your guides.

You have two options:

Option 1儭: Create a segment

UserGuiding can identify your user's language through their browser session, which allows you to create a segment using this information.

To do this, access the Users Page, create a new segment, and give it its name. Then, click on '+ Filter,' select 'Language' as your browser attribute, and choose the desired language. Finally, save it and publish changes.

Option 2儭: Send a user attribute

Alternatively, you can send to UserGuiding your user's language as a user attribute. When sent, these attributes will be available on the Users Page, and then you can create a segment as explained above.

Step 6 - Select the right audience 儭

In the end, make sure to go to your guide settings and select the correct segmentation! Just like this:

Final thoughts:

You may wish to select either one of the options for your segmentation. Although selecting option 2儭 may seem a bit more complicated and tech-heavy, it will allow you to segment your users more precisely.
