How to Use: Import Europass CV to your CV

Import Europass CV to your CV at the Comoto CV Manager

With our new integration to Europass it is possible to import Europass to your exisiting CV data from the Europass standard into Comoto using the Europass XML file.

Two ways to import Europass CV:

  1. Using the Comoto CV Import Wizard
  2. Using the CV list icon for importing

Both types of imports are going to use your existing Europass XML file, so you need to have that within reach, preferably existing on your Computer/USB stick, because you wil have to upload the Europass XML file to the Comoto CV Import Engine.

Import EuropassUsing the Comoto CV import Wizard

Please login to your Comoto account here, go to the menu My CV and choose “CV creation Wizard”.

After that you will activate our CV  Import Wizard, where you can for time being import your existing data from LinkedIn and Europass.

Import EuropassOur new and improved CV Import Wizard now contains the ability to import from LinkedIn and from Europass.

You should choose “Import from Europass XML File”, enter the name of your new Europass CV, choose the language you want for this CV and press “Next”.

Import EuropassA dialogue will pop-up asking you to upload your “Europass XML file”, select the Europass CV file you want to import and press “Next”.

Your existing data from the Europass CV which just have been uploaded will be converted into the Comoto CV standard and this would finalize the job of importing the Europass CV. This can be done within a minute, so you are saving a lot of time by doing it in this way.

The created CV/Resume will be a new CV on your CV list and will not change existing CV within Comoto.

The CV creation wizard can only be used to create a new CV not to update an existing CV, if you want to update or overwrite an existing Europass CV you should use the CV List import feature as described below.

Using the CV List for importing

If you want to import into an existing CV or update an existing CV you should login to Comoto as described above, and then choose “My CV” to see you existing list of CV/Resume.

You should then find the little “Yellow Europass Star Icon” (see arrow above). By pressing this icon you choose to import a new Europass CV into this CV, by doing this you should be aware that you will overwrite/delete your existing CV with the new data. After pressing this icon you will get the same pop-up image as in the CV Import Wizard and you should upload your Europass CV.

How to Use: Choose language for your Comoto CV Templates

How to Use: Choose language for your Comoto CV Templates

You can choose your favourite CV Templates language in Comoto each time you export your CV. It is extremely easy to do, just by choosing the language in a drop down menu before you export your CV.

After you have created you C or Resume and you want to export it in to one of our many CV Templates, you simply use the Language drop down menu and choose the language you want your static data in.

When you are pressing the language drop-down box a selection will appear for you to choose the language of your choice.  After you have made your choice just choose you favourite template and press export and you have your CV in the language of your choice.

Please notice that this translation only translates the static information in a CV and not the content you have entered. So it is localising items like “Name”, “City”, “Birth of date” into the corresponding languages of your choice.

We will constantly add more languages, and if you want to help either to translate or proofread our translations into your specific language, please feel free to contact us at theteam@140.82.38.88 to ask for further details.
