Translating courses from English to Spanish to Portuguese

I think I have two options

Keep them in separate websites with own language or perhaps,
installing the language packs and having two course trees, or three or four.

Can I import the courses or copy them from one folder to another ?

Hi Cesar,

yes you can. Copying is done by backup and restore. You can then move the newly restored course into any category you need.
You may be also interested in Multi language content although I recommend to use separate category trees, one for each language. But the best approach depends on many factors...

Thanks for your reply and the link on Multi Language Content

I have followed instructions for back up but did not see file in server as named.

So I am copying the course folder to my hard drive and later will replace the same
folder in the Spanish site I have created with the same installation but default Spanish Language filter.
It will be a lot easier to edit than to enter all the course information.

As per the glossary I will need to convert my word document to XML to import.

See how this goes, as I also have to do French and Portuguese versions.

Regards,
César

César, there are no course folders you could simply copy out off the Moodle, translate them and push them back. What folders have you copied?

I tried ! &(
Copied the Course folder but that did not help.
So I have one window open with www.offsetprintingblankets.com/moodle/ and the other with www.mantillasimpresionoffset.com/moodle/ and I am creating course categories and courses one by one, which helps to review the English course set up.
I have forced Spanish as language for second site.
Thanks for asking.
Appreciate any advice !
