Translation priority

Jump to: navigation, search

Note: You are currently viewing documentation for Moodle 2.3. Up-to-date documentation for the latest stable version is available here: Translation priority.

This page gives a letter based priority grade to every file or file group in a language pack. The aim is to help new language packs to reach as quickly as possible a usable state.

  • Priority A: These files should be translated. This category includes files with mostly strings which are visible for students.
  • Priority B: These strings are used for teacher views or strings for less often used parts of Moodle.
  • Priority C: These strings are mostly admin or modules that are not often enabled on sites.
