Translating front-end only

I would need to translate Xenforo to my native Finnish. I was looking at the admin and it seemed from there that the translation file included abour 5000 sentences out of which quite many were for admin.

Is there a way to find the phrases for front-end only and how many would these be?

Is there a way to do some of the translation automatically? I understood there are some projects where they have translated a lot of basic sentences into different languages to use in open source projects or something to that effect?

To translate the language you need to export the XML:

Admin CP -> Appearance -> Languages -> Export

When downloading a language you can specify untranslated phrases. Then you can edit the XML file directly to enter translations. When you are done translating you can import the XML file:

Admin CP -> Appearance -> Import a Language

Is there a way to find the phrases for front-end only and how many would these be?
All of the phrases are together. There is no option to separate admin from front end phrases.

Some time ago ibnesayeed did some analysis of xenforo sources to filter out front-end related phrases. I used this analysis as the starting of translating xenforo's front end into Urdu. I also wrote an add-on that made it possible to keep the admin section in English whereas a different language is set as forum's default.
