php – Moodle Language synchronisation

Posted by: admin July 12, 2020 Leave a comment


Hi I recently got used to moodle http://moodle.org.
I want to use the official Moodle App for IOs/Android.
However I want the language to be german when using the app.
Here is an example screenshot:

The docs say that I have to upload a mobile.php to my lang/en folder in order to customize the language of the app. See http://docs.moodle.org/24/en/Mobile_app#Translation (applies for newer versions as well). The file is structured like this

However if I upload this file to my server, the app does not change it’s language. It is still english.

I hope that someone with more insight to moodle can help me.

How to&Answers:

You’ll need to install the German language pack :

Settings > Site administration > Language > Language packs

Then you can change the default language for the site to German :

Administration > Site administration > Language > Language settings.

also for individual user profiles :

Administration > My profile settings > Edit profile.
