How to see ODK collect in diferents languages

Hi,

I've asked about different languages son days ago and you answer me:

*When you switch the phone's locale to Spanish, Collect will render it's UI
in Spanish text. *

I understand than I should do in my phone Menu->Settings->Locale &
Text->Select language.

I've tested Spanish(Spain) and Spanish(USA) without success, I always see
the UI in english (ODK COllect 1.1.7).

I'm using a Galaxy Mini gt-s5570. Android 2.3.5

What can I do? I missing something? Thank you.

Do you have the questions in Spanish, too? If you're using xlsform, for
example, to build your questionnaire, you'd need two extra columns:
"label:Spanish" for your questions in Spanish and "hint:Spanish" for the
hints in Spanish.

You can also change the form's language while in ODK using Menu>Change
Language.

I did the form with ODK Build in English and Spanish and other language,
but always I see English. I suppose that I must not modify the forms
created by ODK Build.

But the ODK Collect prompts (not the form) are always in english.

Have you tried change the form language within ODK? In ODK, hit menu then
select "change language". Do you see Spanish as an option?

John,

As long as Android supports the font, the survey can be in any
language as question text is specified by the form creator. Please

Waylon,
Thank you for your fast response.

I know that ODK support the translation.
When I save the form file in another language,
ODK Collector App did not encode the language in proper.

ODK can not support form title and form filename in another language?

The option appears when you are inside form filling because not all
forms have the same language options. Therefore the language is
selected on a per from basis.

In ODK Collect 1.1.7, inside settings menu, I have not the option
"change language".

Wow, It was not known that menu options were changing when there is an
open form... Now I see the form in the language that I want, but I
continue seeing the application buttons and options in English.

Thank you very much.

The filename is utf-8 on ODK Aggregate side of things (I am not sure
what the Android limitations are) so if the characters can exist then
try naming the file that. The title I would assume you can put any
characters you want in. However, without doing lots of research I am
unclear of what code is used and whether or not the developers have
properly encoded the strings. I would say give it a try and see what
happens. If it works great, if it doesn't file an issue. However, it
could be a problem inside JavaRosa which is much slower to get fixed.

It's ok, I've tested Collect 1.2 RC 2 and the User Interface show the
correct language. It's Xperia with Android 2.3.3 in Portuguese.

The ODK Fequently Asked Question page covers changing languages:
http://opendatakit.org/help/faq/

How do I change language that Collect is using?

These tools understand the text internationalization features of
javarosa Xforms and can restructure your input so that the question
text is grouped into an translation block for
internationalization. Therefore, to support multiple languages you
need to specify the question text in the appropriate language using
the tag. To change the language the Xform's questions are being
rendered in, simply hit the 'Menu' button on the Android while filling
out a form and click the 'Change Language' button.

To change the language ODK Collect is using to render the user
interface (e.g., button text, instructions) you need to change the
phone's language settings. Collect determines it user interface
language (not question language) based on the phone's overall
settings. For example in the phone settings if you set the phone's
locale to Espanol, Collect will render it's navigation text in
Spanish.

Waylon

Strange! I think I'm missing something. A few months ago, I helped in
the translation into Portuguese of ODK using Amanuens Updated
Translations. I keep hoping a update with the possibility of language
in ODK Collect User Interface (main menu and etc..).
Here in the Motorola Milestone 1 with Android 2.1, if I change the
language in Android OS, the ODK menu continues in English.
Can anyone clarify this issue a bit?
Again, this is not about questions of my forms. This is about the ODK
UI [Fill Blank Form], [Edit Saved Form], etc.

Thanks

Ricardo,

To clarify there are two translations involved here. The form
translation and the ODK Collect UI translation. The Amanuens
translations are for ODK Collect UI translations.

The form translations are the responsibility of the form designer.

The key part of the FAQ for ODK Collect UI translation :

"To change the language ODK Collect is using to render the user
interface (e.g., button text, instructions) you need to change the
phone's language settings. Collect determines it user interface
language (not question language) based on the phone's overall
settings. For example in the phone settings if you set the phone's
locale to Espanol, Collect will render it's navigation text in
Spanish."

If your phone does not support Portuguese then ODK Collect will not
change it's text to Portuguese. If your phone is in Portuguese and
Collect is not showing in Portuguese file an issue on our website and
we help you figure out the problem.

Cheers,
Waylon

All,

Sorry about the confusion, my fault.

I forgot to mention an important point. The Collect user interface
(e.g., button text, instructions) translated to other languages is
available in Collect 1.2. Collect 1.2 is currently in Release
Candidate 1 stage and is available from ODK development website:
http://code.google.com/p/opendatakit/downloads/list

The actual release of Collect 1.2 is scheduled to be pushed to Google
Play the first week of July. Therefore in early July it should be
updated to your phone automatically and then Collect will be
displaying prompts in the translated languages. There are more
features that are scheduled to be added to Collect 1.2 by the end of
June.

Sorry about the confusion, my fault.

Cheers,
Waylon

Hi

I've tested 1.2 RC 2.

It show the correct language (locale).

When I sent a filled form to my aggregate I must enter first time the
password because it was undefined in settings. That's ok, but the
password mask field in that window is incorrect and unclear. It appears
the field divided by one blue line and the cursor is not seen well.
Better the character * like in Settings.

Is it possible to automatically fill a field in the form with the user
name? The same username defined in settings. Because it is uncomfortable
for the user to repeat every time a user's identifier and I do not see
in aggregate the one who has filled the form. I think that is a
necessary characteristic.

Frances,

We use an automatically-recorded deviceid field to keep track of which
devices filled which forms (e.g., see
http://opendatakit.org/help/form-design/xlsform/). If you know who uses
which devices, then you can merge in user details on the back-end.
Alternatively, we have our surveyors fill in a "login" form at the
beginning of each day; on that form, they indicate their personal details,
their location, etc. We then use the deviceid and start-time to merge login
details with later forms filled from the same device on the same day. That
way, a lot of information only needs to be input once per day (or whenever
phones change hands).

Just to be clear, the "login" support is not built in: we just created a
separate form, then wrote Stata code for our back-end process to merge
login details into all subsequent forms (by just finding the most recent
login for the device, prior to the other form in question).

Best,

Chris

Hi

I've tested 1.2 RC 2.

It show the correct language (locale).

When I sent a filled form to my aggregate I must enter first time the
password because it was undefined in settings. That's ok, but the password
mask field in that window is incorrect and unclear. It appears the field
divided by one blue line and the cursor is not seen well. Better the
character * like in Settings.

Is it possible to automatically fill a field in the form with the user
name? The same username defined in settings. Because it is uncomfortable
for the user to repeat every time a user's identifier and I do not see in
aggregate the one who has filled the form. I think that is a necessary
characteristic.

All,

Sorry about the confusion, my fault.

I forgot to mention an important point. The Collect user interface
(e.g., button text, instructions) translated to other languages is
available in Collect 1.2. Collect 1.2 is currently in Release
Candidate 1 stage and is available from ODK development website:
http://code.google.com/p/**opendatakit/downloads/listhttp://code.google.com/p/opendatakit/downloads/list

The actual release of Collect 1.2 is scheduled to be pushed to Google
Play the first week of July. Therefore in early July it should be
updated to your phone automatically and then Collect will be
displaying prompts in the translated languages. There are more
features that are scheduled to be added to Collect 1.2 by the end of
June.

Thank you Chris,

I do not know the id phone because the collectors will be voluntary with
their private phones. I will try that they send the idphone by email, but
in that case the username had been easier.

These examples of XLSform have helped me to improve the form. Till now I
only used ODK Build.

Regards
