Moodle Language Settings

Moodle’s language display is controlled by the interaction of two settings: (1) the “Preferred language” in the user’s profile, and (2) “Force language” in the settings for each individual course. The course setting overrides the user’s preferred language. Currently there are only three choices of language available: Deutsch (de), English (us), and English (en).

“English (en_us)” is the default profile setting. Our course template is set as “Do not force” language, meaning that the individual profile setting applies, so the current settings result in U.S. English unless the user decides to change it in his or her own profile.

Note that this takes care of spelling “enroll” the American way, but “Uncategorised” in the Gradebook is spelled the British way even in English (en_us) module.
