There are new features to try out again! Change the Bound language while playing directly in the app, have your texts translated in the Bound Creator or end a Bound after the playing time has expired.
Since last year, it has been possible to offer a Bound in multiple languages with the premium feature "Multilingual Bounds". Now we have added even more functions to the feature.
In the app, players could previously only choose one of the translations stored in the Bound settings when starting the Bound. Now changing is also possible while playing the Bound!
This is how it works: Use the menu in the app to select a language from the translations stored for a bound. And you can continue playing in Spanish, for example.
Tip: As a creator you not only have the possibility to use known languages, it is also possible to create a fantasy language or to store your texts in different language levels or Special English.
Also new: Thanks to our DeepL extension you can add translations of your texts with one click.
This is how it works: Add a translation to your Bound in the settings. Click on the translate icon in the upper right corner of the translation tool and be patient for a moment
The translated texts will be inserted directly into the individual fields (or elements). You will also find your media and formatting, such as paragraphs and Markdown commands, in the translation.
Note: Make sure that the media you use, such as images or videos, are understandable to players of any language. Both the license information and any images or language in videos should be provided to your players in the language of their choice. If you want to include a medium in another language, it is best to include it in the Bound Creator so that you can first cut it out of the primary language in the translation tool and then paste it into the translation at the desired location.
You made minor adjustments in the primary language? THose concerned elements are marked with an exclamation mark (!). Adjust the translation, by clicking on the translation icon to the right of those concerned elements.
Data protection notice: The data sent to DeepL is processed on German servers and deleted directly after translation at the provider.
You can find the currently available languages of DeepL here.
Timing is everything - Limit the playing time of your Bounds
We recommend that you give your players an indication of how long a round of your bound will take. In the Bound settings under playing time you enter the corresponding time (in minutes).
Now select one of the two modes. Playing time as a recommendation gives your players orientation without further consequences, as before. Playing time ends Bound, on the other hand, imposes a time limit on the entire Bound. After the time limit has expired, players can still complete the current element, after which the Bound is ended and the ranking is displayed.
This way you can give your players an extra motivation boost or increase the fun of the game with a little bit of pressure. You decide!
Note: The playing time is a licensed feature. Check out our new feature overview here.
It is still possible to add a time limit to quiz elements.
