Language on CCHQ when application is deployed in local language

Hello,

Not sure if this can be changed any time soon, but I have a project whose
application is deployed only in Sesotho. The reason for this is that the
Java phones have limited memory. However, when I want to investigate the
forms submitted under Case History in CCHQ, it shows up only in Sesotho.
This makes it hard to read through the forms–I can match up the Sesotho
questions/answers with the English translations when I export all the
questions onto Excel, but still makes it hard.

Is there any way around this? Other than learn the local language?

Thanks.

Carol

Hi Carol,

What naming convention are you using for question IDs? If you choose to
name your question IDs something descriptive, that can help a lot when
inspecting the data.

When you view a form on CommCareHQ, you can choose to view it by “Label” or
by “Question ID”. I recommend naming your question IDs something that will
help you understand the question.

Hope this helps!

Hi Carol,

I’d also recommend voting for this UV idea so that you can choose the
language that those labels gets displayed in!

Thanks!
