Summary18339: Need Way to Modify Question Props in question_l10ns

Using the array ["questiongroupl10ns"=>["en" => ["group_name"=>"xyz", "description"=>"abc"]] I can modify a group's entries in the questiongroupl10ns table. This allows me to modify the group's information "on the fly" from remote control's set_group_properties call.

However, set_question_properties does not modify the question_l10ns in a similar manner, leaving me with no choice but to go after the tables manually via SQL [insert shudder here]. set_question_properties needs to be enhanced to support the question_l10ns table attributes.

Steps To Reproduce

Steps to reproduce

call set_question_properties and try to modify the question's "question" or "help" text.

Expected result

set_question_properties should set the text into the question.

Actual result

Text not set.

TagsNo tags attached.

@gabrieljenik this was submitted for 5.x, do we need to port your fix there as well?

No initial done for develop. Not sure if this is a fit for v5. Just let me know.

@gabrieljenik I tested your PR, looks good. I don't know if we need to add some documentation for it or not.
Why do you think this is not a fit for 5.x?

I don't know if we need to add some documentation for it or not.

We ported the behaviour from set_group_properties.
There is no documentation there related to l10n

Why do you think this is not a fit for 5.x?

Developments and enhancements are not done for 5x usually.
