Moodle app translations

The Moodle app is being translated into more and more languages! See for the latest translation stats.

How do I translate words and phrases used in the Moodle app?

To help with translating, you first need to create an account on the Moodle translation site.

The Moodle app strings may be found here:

( Component local_moodlemobileapp and version 2.6.) You only need to translate the strings for that version; there is no need to propagate the strings to other versions.

Notice that most of the app strings are automatically translated (because they are already translated in Moodle), so only the strings that are specific to the mobile app are displayed.

You have a list of all the strings used by the app here:

Some examples are:

  • "addon.mod_quiz.connectionerror": "quiz" - Means the string "connectionerror" of the "quiz" component in AMOS.
  • "core.category": "moodle" - Mean the string "category" of the "moodle" component in AMOS.

I am not a language pack maintainer. How can I contribute a translation?

The process is the same as for core Moodle. See Contributing a translation.

Note: Please contact the maintainer of your language pack as listed in the Translation credits to tell them that you are translating the Moodle app. (If you don't receive a reply within a reasonable time, contact our Moodle translation coordinator, Koen Roggemans,

When will the translated strings be shown in the Moodle app?

Translations are not automatically synchronised with the app; you will have to wait to the next app release to see your latest translations.
