Prepare an image localization kit

You send images to the translation team in a separate package. An image localization kit contains everything the team needs to translate the images.

The images as well as the map or topic that contains the images must have the status Localization:tb translated (or its equivalent in your workflow).

Note: You do not create an image localization kit directly from an image. You create it from the map or topic that contains the image(s) you want to localize.

To prepare an image localization kit:

  1. Search for the map(s) or topic(s) that contain the images:
    1. Open the Search view.
    2. In the Cycles panel, select the Localization checkbox.
    3. In the Document Types panel, select Maps and/or Topics, depending on if you are localizing images in one topic or a map.
    4. In the Languages panel, select the target language(s).
    5. Click Search.
    All maps or topics that are being localized in these languages appear in the Search Results view.
  2. In the Search Results view, right-click the map or topic you are localizing and select Localization > Prepare Image Localization Kit.
    A Progress Information dialog appears as the image localization kit containing all the images in the map or topic is generated and zipped.
  3. After the image localization kit is prepared, do one of the following:
    • If Auto save is enabled, the Prepare Image Localization Kit dialog displays the location where the file was saved. Click OK.
    • If Auto save is not enabled, the Save As dialog appears. Pick a filename and location, then click Save.
Once the images are translated, you must import them back into IXIASOFT CCMS Desktop.
