Once you have created the Zendesk Guide project on Lingpad, all you have to do is bring the content residing in your Zendesk Guide over to Lingpad. Your project on Lingpad will become the single source of truth where you can import all the knowledge base articles with or without translations with a single click. Let's see how!

    Note: Language addition: You can only add new languages on Zendesk and after syncing your Lingpad, it will automatically import the added language(s). Learn how to add new languages to your Zendesk Guide here
    Note: Language deletion: The language deletion will not be implemented on the Lingpad dashboard automatically. If you choose to delete it from the Lingpad dashboard, go to Languages, click on the three dots next to the relevant language, and select delete. Please note that all the associated translations will be deleted and cannot be recovered.
