Question: How to export/import phrases in a existing language?


Well-known member

A question:

How to export selected phrases (eg an Addon) and how can I import a translation of this phrase (eg an add-on) in an existing language?

I just spent some time testing this. Currently (beta 3) the language import / export options only do entire languages.

Phrases for an addon are included in the addon XML file when you download it:

Admin CP -> Home -> List Add-ons -> Export (in the menu on the right)

Those phrases are installed and uninstalled with the addon.

and yes, but how to do it when you have translated an addon and want to make this translation available to others?
So a language file for a specific addon ...

At present, one would have probably the installation edit XML and then offer complete (after the author's permission of course). But this is a bit cumbersome.

The hope dies last. An attempt was worth ... :D ;)

This should be corrected to the final yet.
