In the past tutorial, I setup the project for a multi-language experience. In this posting, I will teach how to configure images (layers) and audio to just show up when the corrected language is selected.
Adding audio files to the project
In page2, there is a line of text (for each language) that needs to be associated with an audio file. In order to enable multi-language to audio, name it audio with the same name. For example, if you have an audio called narration.mp3, name it eng_narration.mp3 for the English version and spa_narration.mp3, for the Spanish version.
After renaming my audio files to the correct setup, I am ready to import them, using the Pages->Add Audio option. It will open the following window:
Browse to the location of your first file (order is not important here), in this case I picked the English one. I set it as This is the page Read Me audio file, disabled the loop (it will play only once), and selected the (new) Languages popup as English. Just after doing it, I previewed the project again. See the results:
Yes, when you imported the first multi-language audio, Kwik will import all other audio (it works for video too) named with the above convention (3-same-letters-used-for-the-languageID_audioname).
Setting image layers (layers used as animations or static image)
Now, let’s select only the correct line of text for each language (I will cover Sync text feature in another posting). Selecting layer father (or padre, as order is not important here), then going to Tools->Set language to a layer (the new button), a window opens:
The first parameter Multi-layer, allows me to create a group for all related images. As my only option at this moment is “** NEW **”, I accepted that. As I am in the father layer, I picked the English language in the Languages popup.
Now, I selected the layer padre, and do the same for this layer. The difference now is the fact I pick father in the Multi-layer popup, as I am associating the layer padre to this already created group. I selected the Spanish, as this is the correct language for this layer.
As you can see in the plugin’s panel, the last two Set Language commands are represented in the panel. Like other page components, a double-click edits them.
This is how the project works after another preview:
In the next posting I will cover animations and buttons. Comments? They are welcomed!
