  2. Go to https://translate.limesurvey.org and log in there with the same user name and password.
  3. Pick the LimeSurvey version you want to translate for and start translating. After your translation was approved, it will automatically be released in the weekly stable release and your user name will be credited in the change log.
  4. If you are interested to become a prime translator for your language with the ability to approve newly translated strings, please contact us at translations@limsurvey.org.

Anpassen einer vorhandenen Übersetzung

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

  1. Go to https://translate.limesurvey.org, pick the LimeSurvey version you want to translate for 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. Do that 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. That is the one LimeSurvey will read from.
  6. The last step is to place the particular *.mo file in the right language folder in /locale by replacing the existing one.
Help.pngFor example, the location for French would be <LimeSurvey_root_directory>/locale/fr/LC_MESSAGES/fr.po.
Note: If you are using LimeSurvey Pro, the team will be happy to place the file for you. Just create a support ticket and attach the *.po file (not the .*mo).

Creating a new translation

  1. First of all, get access to the development version of LimeSurvey. For detailed instructions, access the source code.
  2. Download and install Poedit .
  3. Now you have to find out the language-code for your language - you can search for your language-code in the IANA Language Subtag Registry.
  4. Go into the /locale directory (located in the LimeSurvey root directory) and create a directory named after your language code.
  5. Download your language template by clicking on the following link https://www.limesurvey.org/limesurvey.pot. Once you receive the language template file, rename it to <your_language_code>.po.
  6. Copy the <your_language_code>.po file to the newly created folder located in the /locale directory.
  7. Open the file with Poedit and translate everything you need to translate.
  8. To make LimeSurvey know about your language, you must add it in application/helpers/surveytranslator_helper.php (located in the LimeSurvey root directory). Open that file with a text editor and add your language in the same way the other languages are defined in that file.
  9. Save - in order to allow LimeSurvey to see the newly added language, save the modified *.po file. This will automatically generate in the same folder the *.mo file, which will be read by LimeSurvey.
  10. Send the new *.po file and the updated surveytranslator_helper.php file to translations@limesurvey.org.
