There are a few ways you can translate your content with ease, see below:

In the editor view

  1. Go to the 3 dot menu in the top right

  2. Click Translate

  3. Choose language and click Duplicate

  4. You can find the translated copy of your content under the Create tab

On the content Manage page

  1. Go to your content’s Manage page

  2. Click Settings

  3. Go to the Translate tab

  4. Choose language and click Duplicate

  5. You can find the translated copy of your content under the Create tab on Sana’s main page

When translating content it is always duplicated so you have a copy of the content in the original language. We always advise you to proof read the translated courses before publishing them.


How does Sana handle course translation?

Sana offers the capability to translate courses in an instant using the Translate capability in the options of the course. During translation, Sana is able to preserve all the interactive blocks, polls, questions, images, text formatting, reflections, answer options, key takeways, branding and images when machine translating a course.

Once the translated course is ready (generally within 1-2 seconds) reviewers or collaborators can be added to that.

What media format does Sana support?

Sana supports all video formats that do not exceed 2GB of size.

The preferred size and resolution for Course cover images is:

  • Size: 16:10 or 16:9

  • Resolution: 1920x1080

The preferred size and resolution for images in Cards is:

  • For title cards:

    • Size: 16:10 or 16:9

    • Resolution: 1920x1080

  • For image+text cards: half of title cards

Does Sana support video subtitles?

Sana will support video subtitles before end of year. What can you do in the meantime if you really need subtitles? You can upload your videos on a video hosting service like Loom or Vimeo and embed it using the /embed block in Sana.

Does Sana support XLIFF?

Sana does not support XLIFF. The courses in Sana are made of several interactive components and social components and Sana chose not to support XLIFF in the short term to not affect the innovation speed of the Sane Engineering team.

What technology does Sana use to translate content?

Sana uses the latest DeepL technology to translate text.

We really want to run our tools on a course export to ensure consistency of the translation. How can we do that?

You can use the export feature in Sana to export the machine translated version of the course in PDF. Once the PDF is analyzed or a search is run on the PDF, the editors can selectively make the changes using the Sana editor.
