So lets say I have the resource manager, and I want to change the phrases to suit classifieds. Okay I changed all the phrases, and now I want to share with the XenForo community. But wait, that's a problem because you can't do that. So this is what I want.

Features
  • Export edited phrases for a certain addon
  • Import edited phrases for a certain addon and override the existing phrases.
  • List of addon's that have imported phrases
  • Ability to disable/enable imported phrases for a certain addon, so you can return to the normal phrases.
Cheers! :) Hopefully someone will take on this task!

I don't understand why this is not possible under the existing system. When someone translates my add-on, they provide an XML file with all the phrases for my add-on in their language (e.g., French or German). Can you not just provide the same language file but for the English language?

You can export all the phrases for an addon. Then import and override.
I tried it and it's easy as i need to do that for the RM.
You can return to the original Phrase but I think one at a time.
List of which addons have imported not sure?

What I am also not sure about is that my edit of the RM is extensive and includes a few Phrases which are not speciific to the RM. How do I add those to the export RM xml file?
Maybe they just have to be done manually as additions.
