Improvements for "Phrase editing"



Any news on this?

I think somebody wrote in twitter that he's working on an add-on for this, but this was some months ago, so i think it was canceled.

How we did it:
  1. Exported the XF language file to Excel
  2. Added one column for each language (we use 3 languages)
  3. Uploaded the Excel file to Google docs, so more people could work on it simultaneously.
  4. After everything was translated, we imported it back into XenForo
Worked great!

Hi Bellinis,

Yes, it is a workaround, but not a good one, if you like to get a good localisation

This exel sheet isn't good for
- checking the available space for text in XenForo
- checking the cross-combinations from phrases in XenForo
- cheching the behaviour from phrase in the XenForo software

So I translate another way as you do to get a localised version of XenForo and not only a translated one ;)

I agree, it works fine for a quick, collaborative translation, but the fine-tuning has to be done in XF anyhow. :)
