The development of a mixed language option for CHT (Swahili-French)


We need some help to develop a mixed language translation for purposes of refugee setting environment deployment.

Refugee Settings, in this context, use a brand of Swahili that incorporates French and Lingala (local Congolese dialect).



Hi @David_01! Welcome to the CHT community forum!

What are the specific areas you wish to translate? We have a tutorial on localization that would be a great place to start from.

Hi @Samuel while this route is alright, it only translates the user interface labels. We are looking to translate the forms as well.

Hi @David_01, you may refer to the xlsform site to get more information on translating form labels to different languages. The doc site is also helpful, with an illustration of how the labels would look in an app.
