Sometimes you want to launch a ReviewRoom for multiple audiences – each of which speak a different language. This is a common requirement in many countries (i.e. English & Spanish in the US, French & English in Canada, etc…)
We now have an option in ReviewRoom where you can add more than one language to your ReviewRoom – this feature has been around for a while in “beta” mode but we’re now announcing it publicly. When an applicant is submitting an application or when reviewers are reviewing what’s on the system, they will be able to choose the language in which they want to operate.
The good news is that all of the applications (regardless of language) get put into the same repository so you don’t have to worry about combining the results in order to compile aggregate stats. With a multi-lingual system, you can also choose to have a separate group of judges (that speaks the appropriate language) to review applications in that language – i.e. it is easy to make the separation.
Once you have your ReviewRoom built in one language, all you’ll have to do is go in and translate the different components and enter them into the system. Once the translations have been inputted, the system will be ready to accept applications in any language.
How does it work?
1) This feature is currently available only in v3.5 of ReviewRoom in our Enterprise plan. In this version, you can go to the “settings” page and then click on the “multilingualizition” tab.
2) Select all of the languages you need in your ReviewRoom and then press “save” – in order to select more than one option, you’ll need to ctrl+click.
3) Once you’ve added the appropriate languages to your ReviewRoom, you will see a dropdown menu at the top of the page. You can switch between languages using this dropdown menu. If you switch to “French” for example, you can then start translating all of the text you’d already added in the application.
4) Forms are also translated in the same way – here is a video that describes this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2coQ8px57jI – the video describe how translations are done in our FluidSurveys product, but because all of our forms are powered by FluidSurveys, the process is the same.
If you’ve got our Enterprise package, we can set this up for you and show you how it works on a one-on-one basis. You can also just send us an email at email@example.com and we can help you out!or take a tour
We’ve been working very closely with one of our clients to build automations & triggers into ReviewRoom. If you’re not familiar with these functions, it would be best to describe things via an example.
Imagine the following workflow
- 1) Applicant submits an application
- 2) Person A approves the application
- 3) Person B approves the application
- 4) Applicant goes to the finalists round
- a) Once the application is submitted, it needs to be locked (i.e. no more edits) and sent to Person A (or team A, if there were a few reviewers) for review. Once the application is assigned to Person A, he needs to get an email so that he knows that it is ready for review.
- b) If person A approves the application, it should automatically be assigned to Person B. Person B would then need to get an email so that he is notified of the new application so that he can go in to review it.
- c) If person A disapproves the application, it should automatically be pushed back to stage 1 of the process and should be “unlocked” so that the applicant can modify it again and submit it.
- d) Similar to the last rule, if person B disapproves the application, then the application is moved back to stage 1 and unlocked so the applicant can make modifications and resubmit the application.
Basically, the applicant moves up the approval process and if he is rejected, he is pushed back down and has the opportunity to work his way back up.
All of what was described above can be done using triggers and automations. Some things (such as automatic promotion of an application when the “Submit” button is pressed) have been in the system for a while – but, with triggers, you can program much more granular and powerful rules to automate your application submission and review workflow.
With triggers & automations, you can truly sit back and relax while ReviewRoom takes care of everything for you.
Triggers and workflows are currently offered in the Ultra and Enterprise plans. These options are currently only available on a “beta” basis as we’re finalizing our testing on this new feature – but the goal is to roll this out to all customers when we release the next RR update.
