Excel as Middleware to do Language translations

Jump to solution

Hi everyone!

My SFDC BA is convinced we can use excel as middleware to perform language translations so I am trying to set that up now.  Ideally, the Addendum needs to be in the language the country uses (ie; US needs English and Spanish).  I have an excel file right now with 1 tab containing the Addendum in Spanish and a second tab in French.  I'm setting the table ranges per videos but I don't think its going to work as I don't understand how I can specify which tab I need to call on when running the package.  Has anyone had to do anything similar with language translations?  WE have to use over 20 different languages globally so I am looking for the easiest method to accomlish.  If excel as middleware is not best method, I am open to suggestions.

 

Thanks all!

Marie

Hi Marie,

 

Does it actually need to translate or are just trying to send out content based on language? You could potentially use Component Group's(https://help.nintex.com/en-US/docgen/docservices/#docgen-sfdc/Services/manageDDP/t_componentLibrary....), to conditionally build out your addendum document.

Hi Leigh, 

 

More so to send out specific content based on the language needed.  I was thinking about the Component Group too.  I will definintely look into going that route aas I don't think excel as middlweware really is the best option.

 

Thanks!

Hi again Leigh!

Trying to setup the Component Group.  My document contains a table and I'd like to be able to include that table in the component group I am creating.  Am I missing something?  I'm not able to see how to be able to format or add in a table in the editor. It's in the table where I need to add in my field tags.  Is it just better to have the tect and forego the table itself?  I'd rather not but if there is a limitation, then it would have to do.

 

Thanks,

Marie

Hi Marie,

 

Currently tables aren't supported inside of a component group, so if you can get away without a table that would be the easiest. You could use conditional text to hide or show the different tables, you can copy paste whole tables inside of conditional text(https://help.nintex.com/en-us/docgen/docservices/docgen-sfdc/Services/templates/ConditionalTextWord....). The other option would be having multiple templates that come in conditionally, instead of using component groups(https://help.nintex.com/en-us/docgen/#docgen-sfdc/Services/manageDDP/FileOptionsDynamic.htm).

Thanks, Leigh! I will try the conditional text route.
