Custom Questions / Multi select fields / Multi language

Post by kingszg » Thu Dec 05, 2019 10:11 am

Quick question:

Is it possible to return the same value from a custom question multi select field, even if the displayed options are different in various languages. When I currently have:

Code: Select all

Meal Plan [Breakfast][Lunch][Dinner][Half Board][Full Board][All Inclusive]
Mahlzeiten [Frühstück][Mittagessen][Abendessen][Halbpension][Vollpension][All Inclusive]
to have something like

Code: Select all

Meal Plan [B|Breakfast][L|Lunch][D|Dinner][H|Half Board][F|Full Board][A|All Inclusive]
Mahlzeiten [B|Frühstück][L|Mittagessen][D|Abendessen][H|Halbpension][F|Vollpension][A|All Inclusive]
where the generated HTML would be something like:

Code: Select all

<option value="B">Breakfast</option>
<option value="L">Lunch</option>
<option value="D">Dinner</option>
<option value="H">Half Board</option>
<option value="F">Full Board</option>
<option value="A">All Inclusive</option>
That's actually, how select boxes would be typically used in a multi-language app. It would be great, if you could look into that.

The answer to the custom question will be in the guests language.

Mark,
I understand that this is currently the case. I was just wondering, whether you could help us making the option/multi-select fields more helpful, for the property, by continuing to show the options in the guest language, but to store a code a common value for all languages in the custom field.
This would make it much easier and less error-prone, to evaluate those fields subsequently.

Just saying.
