Loquiz PRO is in english language.  However Loquiz app is available in several languages and user can easily create personal language packs if needed. Together with available global languages this makes Loquiz work in any language you need.  And it makes the app very flexible if you want to use your own personalized versions of already available languages.

Adding global languages to your account

User can use languages to tag questions (just for filtering purposes) and to set game language (this affects the app language within the specific game).  At start limited amount of languages is activated to make it easier to use the language. If the language you need is not visible in dropdown lists within game and question edit go to:

Menu->Account settings ->Preferences->Languages.

Click in the languages box and mark the global languages you want to use.  The languages are available now on your account.

NB! You need administrator or owner rights to do this.

If language string is missing in any of the global languages then the fallback language for this string is english. You can not hide labels by not filling them in, english translation is displayed instead.

Creating private languages

Loquiz allows user to create any number of personalized languages based on any other language in the system.

To do that go to Menu->Languages

NB! You need administrator or owner rights to do this.

Click NEW  and fill in the English and Native name for new language.

Icon is used in question list and dropdown box. Please use small image for this. Good place to get country flags is Country Flags.

Base Language

Base language is the language you base your new language on. If there is empty string in your new language, string from Base Language is displayed instead. So if you want to create your own personalized English language you do not have to translate everything. It is enough if you translate just the strings you want to change. Everything else comes from base language.

Translating language strings

Click Translations to start translating your new language. You will see  each string in Base Language , the English explanation of where the string appears and then box to type in your text string.

It is not always very clear in what form the specific string appears, so after translating a language please make sure to test it out. You only need to translate the strings you want to change vs. base language.

Activating new language

Go to Menu->Account settings->Preferences, click on Languages box and add your newly created language if it is not already added.

Go to Games->Open Game->Configure screen and choose the language you just created.

Testing the language

Always test the new language to make sure the text fits the screen and translations make sense for the player.

To test just start a game with new language.
