It seems to me there should be a mention somewhere of why sometimes you might see double brackets [[like this]], but I'm not quite sure what the most appropriate place might be.--N Hansen 10:48, 9 February 2006 (WST)
- Yes, you're right. The information could also be added to Administration FAQ. --Helen Foster 17:10, 6 July 2006 (WST)
Ability to edit language files in non-standard locations
TODO: Ability to edit language files in non-standard locations... Yes, that would be nice, since more and more 3rd-party modules carry their own language files in their folders, and the translation system does not yet apply to them.
"# From Moodle 1.9 onwards, only users with the capability moodle/site:langeditmaster may modify the master language packages (i.e. those being saved in moodledata/lang/). It is prevented from all roles by default. It is expected that only language maintainers will manually allow this to themselves.
- From Moodle 1.9 onwards, only users with the capability moodle/site:langeditlocal may customize the site translation (i.e. files being saved in moodledata/lang_local/)."
I've just tried this out on a test 1.9 install. Should the reference to "moodledata/lang" be "moodle/lang"?
