Is there a way to change the localization file?

We want to change this German gender stuttering back to the generic masculine.

Hi Kristoff,

> Is there a way to change the localization file?

You could also download  a specific BBB version using the tag in (or just navigating the history) and copy over de.json
Just replace  /usr/share/meteor/bundle/programs/web.browser/app/locales/de.json with the file you donwloaded. There might be some slight difference other than the rewording but at this point of 2.5's releases the translations should be pretty stable.

When ready, just restart BigBlueButton so the changes are picked up.
