Allow the teacher to force the language for an activity, as well as at course level

      To test this, you need a Moodle site with some alternative language packs installed.

      I don't really want to write a specific test script here. I would rather the tester did some exploratory testing to try to break this feature (and then failed).

      The new setting is when you create an activity. There should be a new 'Forced langauge' setting under 'Common module settings'. And, that is like the existing 'Forced language' option in the course settings.

      • Those should only appear to users with moodle/course:setforcedlanguage capability.
      • If set for an activity, that takes precedence over the course setting.
      • If a user without the capability edits an activity, the setting is not lost.

      (I think that other aspects are covered by automated tests:

      • All the web services that the mobile app will need have been updated to include the new setting.
      • A user cannot user backup/restore to get around the moodle/course:setforcedlanguage capability restriction.)

    Description

      At the moment in Moodle, you can force the UI language at course level:

      This issue is to add the same feature at activity level too? This will be a new option in the 'Common module settings' part of the activity settings form:
