Language with Value Set Name

Post by VirtuesArios »

Hello Guys,
Would it be possible if I have different languages then in my Value Set Names I have different languages also? What languages I choose it would also pick the languages in the value set?

Code: Select all

English
0 - No
1 - Yes

French
0 - Non
1 - Oui 
And also how would I display the value label in the form instead the value, I want the Yes or No to display in the form not 0 and 1.

I think you're asking, can you have, for example, 3 languages, where only 2 are defined in your dictionary?

If so, then let's pick English, Arabic, and French.

You choose English and Arabic as your two defined languages. You could then put the French version of a value set as the second value set within the either the English or Arabic value set. But then you'd have to create a special code/method to invoke the French language.

>And also how would I display the value label in the form instead the value, I want the Yes or No to display in the form not 0 and 1.

If your value set is defined with Yes/No as the value label and 1/2 in the "from" field, then you should be seeing the Yes/No text, not the 1/2 values.

Thanks sherrell for the quick response, Yes I have two languages, actually it's in CAPI Questions I put the languages, this is only what I want when the user chooses the languages the user also get the response answers or which means in the values set names.

Yes I call the variable with the Item Name ~~NUM1~~

value label - From
No 0
Yes 1

You'll want to add those languages to your dictionary as well: https://www.csprousers.org/help/CSPro/m ... aries.html

Then you can set language-specific labels for items / values / etc.

Thanks for this Gregory Martin it really helps, what action or event would that be if the users change the language during runtime in CSEntry.

You have multiple languages when the respondents in your survey/census have different language abillities. While a country might have, for example, English as an official language, you may encounter people who only speak a local language, and so you would want to switch to that. Or you are in a neighborhood with a large immigrant community, and they don't speak the national language, only their language.
