“Managing a process model in a variety of languages and keeping the different copies synchronized, is the worst nightmare of any Process Analyst. The Multi-Language add-in you developed for us is exactly what we need and your support is more than I could have hoped for. It’s now just a simple trick to add a new language to an existing process model. When presenting the process model, the display language can easily be set to the audience’s needs. Not only does your add-in save me a lot of time, it really enhances the quality of our process models and… keeps my stress level down”

Microsoft Visio is a most useful and versatile diagramming application that has the ability to include information with every single item. Although Microsoft Visio can be installed in many different language versions, it is not possible to maintain multiple language shape text or page names in the same document.

This can be a problem if you have a diagram that needs to be periodically updated because you will need to keep many different copies of the diagram synchronized. This will soon lead to errors or inconsistencies and the diagrams will become misleading and inaccurate.

bVisual developed an add-in for Microsoft Visio 2010, and have now updated it for all newer versions, that enables you to put alternative language translations of the text in every shape text and even the names of each page.

Multi-Language Text in Visio shapes

There are 98 different languages supported by Visio, and you can add alternate text for all of them, if you need to. You can even use Microsoft Cognitive Services Translator to automatically translate a large number of these languages. The add-in will also maintain hyperlinks that have been created between pages in the document, even after the names of pages have been changed.
