In the Blackboard Community I find a lot of positive comments about the Course Tool “Date Management”. But a lot of Dutch speaking Blackboard users (Netherlands, Belgium, ... ) are not familiar with this tool due to a confusing and persistent translation error: some (artificial non-intelligent) tool translated “Date Management” from English to Dutch in “Itemanalyse”:
This error occurs not only in these screens, but also in the Course Tools menu and in the Blackboard online help:
- https://help.blackboard.com/nl-nl/Learn/Instructor/Course_Content/Reuse_Content/Date_Management provides help about Date Management but calls it “Itemanalyse”
- https://help.blackboard.com/nl-nl/Learn/Instructor/Tests_Pools_Surveys/Item_Analysis provides help about the real Itemanalysis in the context of Tests, Pools, and Surveys.
Please Blackboard, make your Translation Tool learn that a correct translation of “Date Management” is “Datums beheren”. It will ease to understand the concept of “reuse content”.
This example is one of a lot of shortcomings in the Dutch language pack. In my opinion, The poor quality of this language pack confuses a lot of Dutch speaking Blackboard users.
