Summary15520: i18n issue: survey welcome message is not translated on registration page (theme and language registration)

To make the registration page more user friendly I want to add the survey welcom message on top.

I copied the welcome div element from welcome.twig to register_messsage.twig
<div class="{{ aSurveyInfo.class.welcome }} text-primary" {{ aSurveyInfo.attr.welcome }}>
{{ processString(aSurveyInfo.welcome,1) }}

That displayed indeed the welcome message in the main survey language (FR in my case), but it does not get translated when I switch to another language (DE in my case)... whereas translation happens with no problem on the welcom page.

Denis suggested on the forum this might be an issue with language badly set in register.

Steps To Reproduce
  • create a survey with FR as main language, DE as second.
  • add any text as survey welcome message, different in both languages
  • edit the template registration message file to add the welcome message (your-theme/views/subviews/registration/register_message.twig), eg per sample given below for fruity.
  • activate survey, with token to activate registration page
  • try to register... and see that welcome message always displays in FR, even if you set language to DE.
Additional Information

sample content for your-theme/views/subviews/registration/register_message.twig, to test

If there is a message on the registration page, like &quot;Survey has not started, or Register now! here it is displayed


{% if registerSuccess %}
<p {{ aSurveyInfo.attr.registermessageb }} >{{ gT("Thank you for registering. You will receive an email shortly.") }}</p>
{% else %}
<div class="{{ aSurveyInfo.class.welcome }} text-primary" {{ aSurveyInfo.attr.welcome }}>
{{ processString(aSurveyInfo.welcome,1) }}

{% if sStartDate %}
&lt;p {{ aSurveyInfo.attr.registermessagea }} > {{ gT(&quot;You may register for this survey but you have to wait for the {{sStartDate}} before starting the survey.&quot;) }}</p>
{% else %}
&lt;p  {{ aSurveyInfo.attr.registermessageb }} >{{ gT(&quot;You may register for this survey if you wish to take part.&quot;) }}</p>
{% endif %}
&lt;p  {{ aSurveyInfo.attr.registermessagec }} >{{ gT(&quot;Enter your details below, and an email containing the link to participate in this survey will be sent immediately.&quot;) }}</p>

{% endif %}

Hello bebs,
This ticket has been open for quite some time.
Do you have any new info / feedback?
Can you please check if this issue still exists in the latest version of LimeSurvey and let us know?
Thank you!

I can confirm this issue still exists.

Any chance someone can have a look at this? It's rather hard currently using limesurvey with public registration and requesting proper GDPR compliant (translated!) consent.

It'd be great if either we could get multi-language "Study information for registration page" as well as multi-language "consent form for registration page" or have this hack, where we include the welcome string in our register-template properly supported aka translated.

This issue exists on LSv3 or in LSv5 or in LSv6?

This issue exists in all of them.

I'm currently using LSv6.
