Hi guys,

I have a problem working with ARIS Architect.  I created a Model using the value stream method, which consists out of 9 connected models. Due to the fact that I'm working with two other colleagues on this project, I need to export my model so that they can import it to their ARIS-Architect. The structure of the model is correctly exported with all their different building blocks and all the connections between the different models. Unfortunately after the import all names are lost and set to the default value "(Unbenannt)" (see picture). 

I started working with ARIS just a few weeks ago, so I'm very thankful for every help from the real experts out there!

looks like you have been editing your content in a different language. Apparently your colleague is logged in to his database in German. Most text attributes in ARIS can be maintained in multiple languages. You select the language you want to see and edit upon login to the database. So let him login to his database in the same language that you used and he should see your content.

SIDE NOTE: If your team gets any bigger, consider the ARIS Server product, which would enable you to work in the same database on the same content through the ARIS Architect client without exporting/importing all the time and considering potential information loss if any two of you edited the same objects.

Another note: If you have been working in different languages and now can't bring your content together, there is a report which is intended to facilitate translating content by external translation offices. The report exports the content to an Excel file with two columns for the two languages you choose.

There you can easily copy the content from one language to the other and re-import that to ARIS. Then you are all fixed.

It worked after changing the language in both databases. Thanks for your help!
