Hi Son,

If we stored the "thislanguage" as metadata, it would *not* be translatable through the Launchpad translation interface, but that's the point. It would stop people who aren't familiar with Mahara, from changing that string through the web interface.

Instead, "thislanguage" would only be changeable via the same method as "pluralrule" and "pluralfunction". I haven't tried to update those yet, so I'm not entirely sure of the details of that. :) I think it's done by updating the .po file directly and uploading it using bzr.

The translated name of the language is unlikely to change very often, though, so it wouldn't be that much of a problem that it's hard to change.
