Text Translation

Hi Everyone,

The challenge I have:

I would like to harness DHIS2’s language translation engine to translate some text on my DHIS2 database login page.

The scenario:

Attached to this mail is a screenshot of my database login page. I have some text (in French) in the footer area of the page that reads, “Realiser un monde ou chaque grossesse est desiree…chaque accouchement sans danger…et le potentiel de chaque jeune accompli” and sitting just next door to the left of my text is the all-powerful language selection box where one selects the login page language. So I thought I should be able to use this wonderful translator to translate my text to whatever language the user selects. So, for example if a user selects English, the text translates into the English equivalent which reads “Delivering a world where every pregnancy is wanted…every childbirth is safe…and every young person’s potential is fulfilled”

I placed the text on the login page using the code:

Realiser un monde ou chaque grossesse est desiree…chaque accouchement sans danger…et le potentiel de chaque jeune accompli

as shown in the attached text file.

The Help I seek:

Please how can I tweak the login page language selector code snippet shown here, (or any other code in DHIS2) to do exactly what I need:

   	<option value="">[ Change language ]</option>

   	#foreach( $locale in $availableLocales )

   			        		<option value="${locale.language}">${locale.displayName}</option>

#end

I currently use:

DHIS 2 version 2.14

Your kind assistance would be highly appreciated.
