  1. Select Modeling > Nickname > Configure Nicknames… from the toolbar.
  2. In Configure Nickname window, select the desired nickname
  3. Click Export….
  4. In Save dialog box, select a directory for saving it as word document in your computer. Click Save after you’ve named the file.

Now, you send the word file to your team member (or your translator). To import the translated word document back to Visual Paradigm:

  1. Select Modeling > Nickname > Configure Nicknames… from the toolbar.
  2. In Configure Nickname dialog box, click Import….
  3. In Open dialog box, select the directory where you save your translated word document and click Open button.
    As a result, you can see your project is updated.
