Summary16745: Title for ranking question gets codes instead of quotes
DescriptionTitle for ranking question gets codes instead of quotes, at least in Latvian translation.
The Latvian translation for <Your ranking> is <Tavs "tops">


This is shown as in the enclosed picture.
I don't know whether this particular string translates with quotes inside in other languages.

This happens in our 3.x-LTS version as well as in the official demo version (LS 4).
Steps To Reproducecreate a ranking question inside a survey which has Latvian language or use the enclosed lss file
TagsNo tags attached.

Maybe a quick fix could be taking away the quotes in the translated string, but since I cannot speak Latvian, I cannot tell if this would fit.

In the meanwhile, i've been asking to get an alternative translation for the string and I've put it as a suggestion in the official translate page

To fix temporaty : you can set manually «Tavs "tops"» in Rank header (lv)

It work in 3.X, don't know in 4.X

I would advise to approve the translation I provided for "Your ranking" as "Jūsu tops ".

I consulted a professional translator and this is the answer I got:

<snip>stick to the polite "Jūsu" which is found elsewhere in the question (left hand side of the picture below; this is the equivalent of German "Sie"). “Tavs” is the informal manner of addressing someone (like the German “Du”).

Thanks a lot,
