How to Export Translation Template from Articulate Storyline to Word

Articulate Storyline has a default Publish option to export e-learning courses to Word format. This makes preparing the template for e-learning translations very easy and quick.

But unfortunately, when we publish a project, it displays an error message. This is a recurring issue for many of our developers and leads to a great deal of frustration. We use the latest version of Articulate Storyline 2 (Update 7: 15090.1405). Are you also facing this issue? Then read on to know how this problem can be fixed.

This is the error window that’s often displayed.


Let’s look at 2 solutions at which I’ve arrived after a lot of effort. 

Solution 1:
