Summary16337: No translation for question attribute
Description

There are several untranslatable string in LimeSurvey. Maybe the biggest single block is in question editing below every question: those with "Display", "Logic", "Other" etc. All selections in those are not translated, like "Sort answers alphabetically", help text "Allow only numerical input for 'Other' text", option "Nominal" in SPSS export scale etc.

Steps To Reproduce

Set your language to something other than english

I just checked and "Sort answers alphabetically" seems to be translatable, I checked for Portuguese (Brazil) and it is even translated.
https://translate.limesurvey.org/projects/limesurvey-4/pt-br/default/?filters%5Bterm%5D=Sort+answers+alphabetically&filters%5Buser_login%5D=&filters%5Bstatus%5D=current_or_waiting_or_fuzzy_or_untranslated&filter=Filter&sort%5Bby%5D=priority&sort%5Bhow%5D=desc

Same for "Allow only numerical input...":
https://translate.limesurvey.org/projects/limesurvey-4/pt-br/default/?filters%5Bterm%5D=Allow+only+numerical+input+for+%27Other%27+text&filters%5Buser_login%5D=&filters%5Bstatus%5D=current_or_waiting_or_fuzzy_or_untranslated&filter=Filter&sort%5Bby%5D=priority&sort%5Bhow%5D=desc

So I am currently wondering what do you mean with "untranslateable" exactly? That you can't translate it in Glotpress or that the translation will not make it to Limesurvey? Would be great if you could clarify that, because I currently don't understand the issue.

That they do not appear in Limesurvey. Sorry for being unclear, will try to improve.

OK, so the strings ARE translated, but the translation is not showing up in the GUI. Understood.

Now the question is: Where these translation simply not applied yet in the updates or are they in the language files already but Limesurvey is not using them?

I have manually copied .mo -files into right place, so I think LimeSurvey is not using them.

The answer is «Limesurvey is not using them» , they comes from XML (or database, unsure)

I have the same problem.
Some GUI items are not translated
although these items have been translated in the translation file. (see screenshots)

I understand there are problems more important than this, but
can anyone say in which version it is planned to solve this problem?
