Hi all, 

 A little bug that I detected: When you try to select es_CL for a survey, in the english version of LimeSurvey the option appear as Spanish (Mexico) instead of Spanish (Chile)... then, you have to Spanish (Mexico) to select. 

 Can someone fix this?

Hello Holger,

I made a file with both versions of the translation next to each other which revealed a few points that should be clarified:
  • There are translations for strings that are in both versions, in one marked as translated, in others not translated.
Yes, might be the case. As I wrote in my previous mail if you have the according permissions you can easily sync these.

  • There are strings in 1.92 that do not appear in 2.0 anymore (might be correct, just mentioning).

  • There are strings that are basically the same in 1.91 and 2.0. Only difference is for example that one word starts with capital letters instead of lower case or at the end is a dot or not. How should we treat those translations?
I am not sure how that question is meant? The original string changed and it needs to be re-translated.

  • Sometimes there are the same strings in the same version twice, only difference: capital vs. lower case or a dot at the end.
If possible these should be carefully unified in the source. In general full sentences with correct punctuation are preferred.

I think we need to optimize those things, because I don't think it is necessary to use both versions. We just need to decide for one. However, I don't know the impact of this in the code itself. But better solve it now than later.

As I already wrote: Main focus is currently on LimeSurvey 1.92 translation. Any changes to the source strings should be done in 2.0 only because we don't want to invalidate existing translations in 1.92 (unless there is a very good reason for that).
