Translations: Add option to import/export PO ( gettext ) files as alternative to Excel

11

The dialog reached from Language|Batch Replace has an option to import/export Excel files.

Idea: add alternative option to import/export PO files (following the gettext standard).

The PO files can be used with standard translator tools like PO Edit.

Good idea Sean!

Whow, this could lead to make all app store modules public translatable via GitHub. (This might be a bit further fetched than you initial ideal) See https://forum.mendix.com/link/ideas/1670 as well

This way, we can crowd-source translations. Everybody contribute, so having a Dutch, German and many more text in a module, improve the translations, not to worry about it next time. They download the template next time :D and having to correct the same translation errors….

You got my vote.

Cheers Andries
