      Description

      In the settings menu the translated text for the 'attempts' is automatically switched to lower cases, also if they are correct in the language file.

            Which menu? A screenshot or a URL would help.

            OK. Now why is that a problem?

            Actually, it is probalby more of a problem that we are concatenating the string, rather than using the 3rd argument of get_string.

            Actually, why don't we just say:

            Attempts allowed: Unlimited/1/2/3/4/...

            Repeating the word attempts is rather redundant. Wow! that code has been there right from the start! http://cvs.moodle.org/moodle/mod/quiz/mod.html?hideattic=0&revision=1.1&view=markup

            Anyway, what do you suggest?

            Hi Tim,

            sorry for late reply.

            Attempts allowed: Unlimited/1/2/3/4/...

            This suggestion may work in the German translation. I can edit the translation in this way.
            The term 'Unlimited' will appear as 'unlimited' with lower cases.

            I think it is more a general aspect. Translated strings should be shown in the same way they are translated and not changed in any way. I don't know what the consequences in other languages could be.

            Hi Tim,

            the string attempts is not only used for the pulldownmenu. See screenshot. And in the menu is a combination of a number and the 'attempts' string used. If I delete the entry in the string it is missing at other places. I think we need a new string.

            Where can I find the singular term of 'attempts'? Couldn't find it in quiz.php
