Hey,

I'm trying to change the title of the languages presented in the language switcher (Front End). My survey is supposed to be bilingual, German and English. There are two German language packages. A formal and an informal one. The problem is, that the language switcher presents the language title as "Deutsch (Sie-Form)" (German (formal)). I'd like to remove the "(Sie-Form)" (formal).
Could somebody please advice me, how to achieve this?

Thanks,
Nico

Thank you for your answer.
Currently I am using Version 1.92+ Build 120530. So with Build 120613 it will work?
Could you please explain how the issue is solved in this build? I appreciate your answer, but I need to know for sure, that it will work then. Since I do not have full admin rights, I would have to ask somebody else to update. I don't want to do this in vain...

Thanks a lot!

Nick, since you have asked this question yourself: Can you please explain how one can change that and add some additional sentences to our manual? It's a wiki, everyone can edit it and you can't do much wrong.

Thanks!

Hi Marcel,

well I think, this is self-explanatory. In the new build there simply is no "Deutsch (Sie-Form)" anymore. The language package was just renamed to "Deutsch". So there ist now "Deutsch" and "Deutsch (Du-Form)" but no "Deutsch (Sie-Form)" anymore.

I will add this to the wiki, but not right now, since I'm quite busy at the moment...

When looking again at my survey today something else regarding this language issue came to my mind:
Language titles presented in the language switcher are displayed in the currently used language.

But it would certainly be more user-friendly if the language title was displayed in the respective language?

E.g.:
German would be displayed as "Deutsch", English as "English", while French would be displayed as "français"...

Is there an option for that, or would this be a feature request as well?
