I need a Finnish user interface for my course...

Hi there,

... so is there a way to translate the text strings that are visible to the client & how do I go about doing that?

Very many thanks in advance,
- Johanna

    Hi Ari,

    Wonderful tool - thank you so much!
    I have started the translatiion and came up with another question or two. For me its okay to have the backend and instructor view in English but I want the students to have a Finnish UI. Is there a way to tell these apart? I have now translated the strings sort of randomly and left many untranslated that I know will not appear for the end user. And, if I leave a part of the strings untranslated, will they show up in English or will they be empty if I don't copy the original string into the translation file?

    Thanks again & have a wonderful day!
    Johanna

    Hello again @Johanna,

    I'm afraid that no, there is no easy way to tell them apart. You can simply test the plugin and whatever you see in English on your screen, translate it. Though I just took a look at the Finnish translation and you've done almost everything!! Nice... I'm sending some rep points your way or your contributions. These are open-source translation so in time the community keeps improving them and adding things to that. You may want to pop over in a month or so and see if anyone has added some things or improved the translations so you update them by re-downloading the .mo file.

    And, if I leave a part of the strings untranslated, will they show up in English or will they be empty if I don't copy the original string into the translation file?

    If you leave something untranslated tit will simply be displayed in English. No need to copy over anything.

    I hope that helps!

    Cheers,
    Ari.
