I have started to translate Xenforo and several other add-ons into my native language. Now I wonder what the most efficient way is to do this? What I have done so far is to go through the different pages and translate it on the fly via "search phrase". I know that there is another way of doing it where you export the phrases to an xml file. The reason for sticking with the first option is that it's easier for me to only translate those phrases that a normal user can se. The administration phrases I want to keep in english but sometimes it's hard to distinguish these ones from the other ones.
Any tips about the smartes way to do this is appreciated.
