      Description

      Some of the strings are just a bit vague at /admin/settings.php?section=webservicesoverview and /admin/settings.php?section=externalservices

      "Enable mobile web service" appears on both pages and could be "Enable web services for mobile devices"

      "One system controlling Moodle with a token"
      I'm not quite sure what this means. Does it mean something like "Allow an external system to control Moodle"?

      "The following steps help you to set up the Moodle web service for a system to control Moodle. These steps also help to set up the recommended token (security keys) authentication method."
      should probably be something like
      "These steps will help you set up Moodle web services to allow an external system to interact with Moodle. This includes setting up a token (security key) authentication method."
