Hi guys, according to docs.limesurvey.org/Quick-translation the quick-translation feature is available in v1.91. I asked our DB admin to upgrade our existing LimeSurvey (not allowed to do it myself unfortunately, so I might not be able to give you all the info needed) and according to the login page, it is now on "Version 1.91+ Build 12170".

When I go in the limesurvey Demo, I can access the quick translation feature, but on our own install with the version above, this feature does not exist.

Any tips as to how I can get this working? Are there separate modules our admin needs to install?

Hey Denis,

yes, I have a survey set up as multi-lingual. I tried c+v'ing the url you posted and got access denied. I'll ask the admin to update the version to 12358 and see if that works. Thanks!

Google is discontinuing the free translation API:

Important: Google Translate API v2 is now available as a paid service only, and the number of requests your application can make per day is limited. As of December 1, 2011, Google Translate API v1 is no longer available; it was officially deprecated on May 26, 2011. These decisions were made due to the substantial economic burden caused by extensive abuse. For website translations, we encourage you to use the Google Website Translator gadget.

I get timeouts and warnings using QuickTranslate, I assume it's because of this. But maybe QuickTranslate uses another service now?

If you replace the XXXX with the surveyid, maybe you don't have acces to the translation of the survey .

Are you the Administrator of the survey ?

@tacman: Ah, I'm not actually talking about the google part of this. There is two parts to the quick translation, one is the actual quick translation, the other is the instant translation that uses the google translate. I'm only looking for the first part that basically groups all text that needs localisation in one place to make pure text access more convenient.

@Shnoulle: yes, I am. I have regular admin rights to the whole installation (not super admin)

Can you see if super-admin have the right ?

If yes, please ask him to look at survey permission if he give you access to "Quick translation", there are a specific settings for this.

If you are the admin , you have to access this screen, i look on my installation :).

Denis

PS1: it's OK if you create the survey
PS2: need to get a new file : limesurvey.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/li...ision&revision=12363

It looks fine here: Demo.limesurvey.org/admin/admin.php?acti...2&tolang=de-informal
User: admin
Password: test

Do you see the "new" menu at the Limesurvey admin backend including the quick translate icon? Maybe some old CSS file is loaded from cache?

Ok, so:

I got myself some super-admin rights (hooray) and now I can see the quick translation. The permission settings for that is (as far as I can tell) per survey? But: even if I am the person creating the survey, I do not automatically have quick translation permission. In fact, noone but the super-admin (and whoever I explicitly give permission to) does.

So my question is:
* is there a general/global setting that I haven't found that allows me to set global quick translate permissions on users or groups (i.e. the group "Translators" should always automatically have access to quick translation on any survey)?
* is there a setting that I missed so that quick translation is automatically available to the user creating the survey?

There is a survey based setting for the quick translation feature, see docs.limesurvey.org/Manage+users&structu..._for_a_single_survey

@Mazi: yes, thank you. I'm also looking for a global setting where I can say "this user always has these right" or alternatively "all surveys, by default, grant quick translation permissions"

I can't reproduce this problem: I create a survey ( with create ability) as no super admin user and i have the icon and the right to do translation.

I can confirm that it's possible to do a Quick-translation with a "creator" account. I tested it with LimeSurvey 1.91+ Build 12358 and LimeSurvey 1.92RC3 Build 12361 and had no problems.

Ok, that must be some sort of bug then, because I definitely can't do it with a creator account, but I can with the super-admin.

Please check if the problem still persists after having updated to the latest version.
