Do languages support inheritance?

    If I create a German language pack using "Sie", can I then create a child language and only translate the phrases containing "Sie" and change them to "du"? (instead of creating two separate language packs with all phrases translated)

    I believe if you have a master language, and you edit a phrase in a child language. But not all, that the rest will show in English.

    This sounds like it therefor be possible in parent/child languages. Because if you make a Parent german language, and a child german language, if the child is customized, the non customized ones inherit from parent.

    Floris, read it low und answer then. You are to fast.
    Jullie en "Zij" zijn 2 Duits versies.

    German "Du" and "Sie" are in the technical sense 2 languages.

    Die Frage ist im Deutschen doch sehr spezifisch.
    Versuche es hier.

    To those who are not familiar with German - we're talking about the formal and informal versions.
    A bit like the old (and dead) english "thou" vs. "you".

    Languages, like styles, exist in a tree. So yes.
