How to change marriage status facts?

    $factarray["_STAT"] is what can be translated and it already is, in Dutch. (huwelijksstatus) But what is NOT translated, is the output phpGedView gives me.

    Like this:
    Marriage Status: MARRIED (english) should become
    Huwelijksstatus: GETROUWD (dutch) but in fact, that's not what happens. Instead, I get Huwelijksstatus: MARRIED. Which I don't want.

    Where do I change this? I can't find it and I have searched ALL the files one can translate via the language translation thingy in phpGedView. As far as I can see, this MARRIED thing isn't in any of them.

    Please help? If this can't be done, I would like to know of a way to completely avoid the marriage status showing up, if that's possible.

    Thanks in advance for your help,

      You can't find the "married" text in PGV, because it isn't there.

      Your gedcom contains something like:

      0 @F1@ FAM
      1 MARR
      2 _STAT married

      _STAT is the tag/label, which can be translated.

      The text that follows is "gedcom data", and I believe this needs to be stored in English for interoperability, just like dates.

      Fixing this would require a code change, as we'd need to take the keyword that appears after _STAT and look it up in a table when viewing/editing the data.

        Thanks for explaining....would there be a way to avoid it to appear at all?

        It (the _STAT tag) really doesn't add much, I case a MARR tag exists, of course people are married otherwise there wouldn't be a MARR tag. In case they are divorced, I always add that fact separately, so it is obvious they are no longer married.
