    Hi Andreas. Thanks for providing the updated version of your block. I gave it another round of review and spotted some issues that should be fixed before we approve the plugin here. From all the issues reported into your tracker, the #6 is an approval blocker for now as it is one of those things that are better to have correct since the day 0, rather than fix them later. But all the other issues I spotted today are quite important and should be addressed.

    Thanks for your patience with the review and approval process.

    Hello Andreas,

    I mean to say that, when we add content to library through "manage library content" and when we display same, the word content is written as INHALT.

    Copied text from my Moodle, so you able to see and understand. Marked (*) Infront of that word. I think INHALT mean content in German language. so can we change the same into English and its display here word "content"

    Inhalt (************)

    Heart failure patients may need multiple medications. Each one treats a different symptom or contributing factor and comes with its own instructions and rules.

    You and your caregivers should work with your healthcare team to understand the medications and when, how often and in what dosage to take them.

    It’s important to discuss all of the drugs you take with your doctor (or other healthcare providers) and understand their desired effects and possible side effects. Your doctor and your pharmacist are your best sources of information. Don’t hesitate to ask them questions about your medicines.

    It's critical that people with heart failure take their medications exactly as directed by their healthcare provider, to optimize the benefits. The use of these drugs has saved lives, prolonged life and improved the heart’s function.

    Hi Andreas. Thank you for a great app. It is just what I needed. I experienced the same problem as Ashan did in the above note. I followed the link to GIT and installed every version available on Git, ending up with Master as seemingly the latest. I however cannot get rid of the German in some of the settings - Ahsan seemed o be successful. Here is my version:
    4.6.0 2022020300. The following German text still is around, and is not in the language file (EN).

    I hope I caught them all.

    Is there a newer version that I am missing?

    Hello Jan, we just updated the master-branch on git (this is also the version now checked in to Moodle.org) - please clear caches as moodle admin - sometimes new language strings need that, regards Andreas
