Dear OF Team,

The problem with error messages in Survey Designer in the previous version has been fixed, but it seems that the same/similar issue is in Data Management. In my single-language (Finnish) form the default (English) messages are displayed.

Related to this, is it or will it be possible to switch between languages in Data Management like in Collect Mobile?

Thanks!

Andras

Dear András,
As we always say "everything is possible"... but you have to be patient! It's not a high priority task or issue, so probably you will see this new feature in August.
Many thanks for your suggestions, they are really appreciated.

Hi András,
The language used by the data management is the language of your web browser.
Of course we could add a way to select the preferred language.
Where would you like to have the language selector? Should it appear whenever you want to create/edit a record in a dialog or would you like to select your preferred language for the entire application? For example with a dropdown menu in the top right corner...?
Thanks!

There could be two language selection options in Collect. One for the entire application and one for the selected published survey in Data Management (DM) instead of the create/edit record window if possible. This way the same language setting can be applied for all records at once.

This approach requires of course that the language setting in DM can override the language setting for the entire application but only for the current survey in DM. Is that doable?

I can confirm that changing my web browser's display language to Finnish and restarting Collect solved the issue. I like to use English as the default language in general when it comes to computers and software, so the option of language selection would be very welcome :)

Cheers!
