Default Text overrides in another language

I have installed H5P on my moodle server, everything is ok. my moodle system have two languages, english and vietnamese. all H5P editor UI and default texts are now in Eng.

How can I configure/translate the texts (I dont really need editor UI, but it also a need in future) to Vietnamese? I dont want my team have to repeatedly entry Vietnamese for text overrides for every h5p content.

Hi hungpk,

This is not yet possible with current features of H5P. Although there is workaround by creating "template" contents that you can repeatedly copy/paste.



Has this feature been added? Is there a way to do this programatically?

Hi bez.lashkari,

There is now a drop down menu under Text Override and Translations that automatically translates the texts within the contents. Please note that the languages available depends on tanslations that have been contributed by the H5P community.


Hi, Unfortunately there is a problem or bug with the Translations drop-down list. For example Interactive video contents strings are all translated to persian more than 5 month ago but when I choose persian from the drop down list the persian strings don't show up (Yes I update h5p libraries from the hub regularly), There is the same problem with H5p MultipleChoise. I don't know if it takes years for libraries to get to h5p hub from github or the problem is somewhere else.

Hi ms930,

Your translation has been released in May. I have filed a bug report here.



I appreciate it
