Translation project linking

Hello All!

 

I've figured out to work in translation projects and am now translation documents by myself. However. I publish to frameless and want my users to have access to my documents in their preferred language. I can't seem to figure out how to give my users the choice to select their language. I've come up with putting a dropdown menu in my topics where I put a cross reference link or hyperlink to the specific translated topic. However I can't find the translated topic in the menu. Am I just overlooking something or am I just looking in the wrong direction to do this? 

How can I put a link to a translated topic from a translation project in my main (EN) topic? 

 

Looking forward to a reply for some guidance.

 

Greetings.

I don't think there's any built in way to do this. I think either you need to put in an absolute URL of the server location of the topic, or, in theory, a relative URL based on the output location.

 

For the relative URL, in theory assuming the EN and translated outputs live on the same server, you could enter the topic path something like this manually:

 

../../fr_fr/path/topic.htm

 

With enough ../ to navigate up the server folder path to the common folder, then the path back down to the translated topic. The exact path will depend on your output and where the outputs live on the server. I'm also assuming the translated output is published to the server as a separate output. But do note I've never worked with translated content, so this is based on research quite a while ago.

 

You could also try contacting support to see if they have suggestions. The email address is recommended as it goes to a dedicated Robohelp team. https://helpx.adobe.com/contact/enterprise-support.other.html#robohelp
