Language Translations for Sheets

Sheets can have multiple copies for different languages used in the office.

In the Edit Sheet Def window, click the Language dropdown.

See our video: Language Translations for Sheets.

Setting up language translations allows for easier communication with patients as they are seen in the office. Once set up, translations are automatically used for patients who have a preferred language.

Set Up

Ensure the following is set up before creating a language translation.

Creating a Language Translation for a Sheet

  1. Open a sheet to translate.
  2. Click the Language Dropdown to select the language to edit, or click Add New.

    When adding a new sheet, click OK to continue
  3. A copy of the default sheet is created. Make edits, add in translations, and any other needed information.
    • Translations are not done by the system. A user must go into each field and manually enter the translation into the selected language version.
    • A user may need to move the field or edit the size.
    • Edited fields on a translated sheet show in green. Fields that have not been changed show in blue.
  4. Click OK to save.

Patients automatically use the sheet that matches their preferred language when filling Patient Forms on the kiosk or when filling forms using eClipboard.

To delete a language translation, select the translation from the dropdown menu, then click Delete. This only deletes the selected language translation, not the entire sheet.

Sync matched fields: Determine if new fields added to the default language sheet are added to secondary language sheets automatically and movement syncs automatically. Checked by default.

Web Forms

When filling Web Forms, patients can use the dropdown in the upper left to select their preferred language.
