Ian, thank you for working on the country and language amendment.  I hope my country Kenya and English language is inclusive.  Great!

Hi

I have fixed the typo in English, and will ask all of the other translators to check their versions!

thanks

Ian

Hi Ian,

I confirm the bug I detected has been fixed.

Just one more: there's a typo passing the test in spanish on the question about the disk sizes: terrabyte instead of terabyte.

Kind Regards

Hello again all.

I can now confirm that by THIS THURSDAY (22nd March) two new features will be live.

1) IP Address country auto detection. The site will detect what country the visitor is from and will instantly load the correct language set(if available), otherwise default to English. The user will then still be able to change language. 

2) Country and Language will be amended, so that someone in (e.g.) Lithuania will be able to take the test in whatever languages are requested, and it will still record to Lithuania.

3) I'm also pleased to be able to add Croatian to the list of languages below(some of which are still in development, and do not appear in full yet)

thanks

Ian

Hi Ian, I kindly ask to introduce English (Lithuania) instead of Lithuanian (Lithuania). Now it is confusing. Thanks

Hi all

please also see some suggested text that you can use with partners (and stakeholders or networks) telling them about Skillage, and some text to use to promote Skillage to young people.
