What is Actimo Translate?

Actimo translate is an Actimo feature that enables employees to translate content in 60+ languages using automatic machine translation through Amazon Translate.

How does it work?

Available for text content in your Actimo messages and social wall, your employees will be able to translate posts, comments, and messages into their preferred language directly in their employee app.

Admins and Editors of the app will be able to turn on and off Actimo Translate on individual messages.

Note that only text content can be translated, so text displayed on pictures will not be detected by this feature.
​


How does it look like in your employee app?

In an Actimo message: A Translate button will show on top of a message
​On the social wall: A translate option will appear below the text in a post or comment.

Here is how your employee can read your content in their preferred language:

  • Message is received.

  • Open the message.

  • On the top of the screen, you will see the option to translate.

  • Select translate and there you have it.

  • The message appears in your preferred language.


What if your employees want to change their preferred language?

You can always adjust your preferred language from your profile:

  • Click on your profile photo/initials in your employee app.

  • Navigate to the bottom of the page where you see translate.

  • Select Translate settings.

  • Choose a new preferred language and saved language and save.
