Translating LimeSurvey/7/en

From LimeSurvey Manual

Sometimes you might want to modify an existing translation so it accommodates your particular survey situation better. In that case, do the following:

  1. Go to, pick the LimeSurvey version you want to translate and the particular language you want to modify.
  2. On the bottom of the translation page you will find an option to export all strings as *.po file. Click on the export and save it as *.po file to your local hard-disk:
    Export po file.png
  3. Download and install Poedit.
  4. Start Poedit and edit the downloaded *.po file - modify the particular translations.
  5. When you save the *.po file, a *.mo file is automatically created. The latter will be read by LimeSurvey.
  6. The last step is to place the particular *.mo file in the right language folder in /locale by replacing the existing one.
