When using Quick Add, how are you separating the codes and label strings?

@DenisChenu, yes, I know how to do it, I was asking la_lucky1 how they are doing it. :)

I can confirm that the Quick Add feature works as expected in 3.17.0, using either tabs or semi-colons and when pasted from either Calc or Excel.

Thank you all for your advice.

When I put together two languages, separated by a semicolon or a tab, they are imported correctly.

My problem is that I have to program the English version first and then put the translations after a while. I can not put them together today.

I tried a question already made in English to put another translation and then a bug was produced.....



Thanks!:)

When using the Quick Add feature, you need to include all languages. So, even if you already have English in place, you will have to add it again when adding new language translations via that feature.

Having said that, it shouldn't be much of a problem if you use Calc or Excel with a column for every language.

Yes, it is a problem if we have many studies in many languages and a little time to work.....:(

Thank you:)

Why? You have English as base language in one column and you just add the new languages into the other columns, then you copy them all in, when the translation is complete. This is probably the least time consuming approach there is.

You can program the structure of your questionnaire in English and then copy the translations in at the end.

Imagine to have to insert all ethe translations by hand.

There might be better solutions for this, but they won't be that much quicker, I guess.
