Forum rules
This forum is meant for general questions about the usability of OCS from an everyday user's perspective: conference managers, presenters, and directors are welcome to post questions here, as are librarians and other support staff. We welcome general questions about the role of OCS and how the workflow works, as well as specific function- or user-related questions.

What to do if you have general, workflow or usability questions about OCS:

1. Read the documentation. We've written documentation to cover from OCS basics to system administration and code development, and we encourage you to read it.

2. take a look at the tutorials. We will continue to add tutorials covering OCS basics as time goes on.

3. Post a question. Questions are always welcome here, but if it's a technical question you should probably post to the OCS Technical Support subforum; if you have a development question, try the OCS Development subforum.

how to correct wrong translations strings?

There is a error with the brazilian portuguese translation. I've posted another topic about the problems that this error leads.

The error is:

Track is translated as "modalidade" (modality) and should be "trilha" (trail/track) or "eixo" (axis)

"Modalidade" can lead the user to confusion with "submission types". I think the reason of this is because its being there translated before the "submission types" implementation (when there was not possible to create submission types)

I want to correct this. How can I do it ?

To correct translation error you have to open files located in the locale folder. In that folder you can find many language folder. You have to open the xml files in pt_PT for portuguese using a text editor.
