      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.

      example: German attempts: Versuche is visible as 'versuche' in the menu.

          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?

          sorry for late reply.

          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
