Since the Language Editor is yet to be released, I would like to pitch the idea of having a find and replace field added. That way if one wants to change all the instances of a certain text they can do so quickly and effectively. 

For example:

To change "friends" to "followers" all one would have to do is type "friends" in the find field and "followers" in the replace field. This would then change all instances of "friends" to "followers."

This would make the Language Editor more friendly to work with and greatly speed up language edits.

Thanks for your consideration,
-Jords

    Great suggestion. I had been using 3rd party software for this but a built in function would be very useful.

    • Thanks!

  • Oooh, definitely a good idea. Added it to the mix.

    Garfield, what third-party software are you using to execute this?

    • Thanks! It would save me soooo much time on doing this for clients.

      I believe I used this quite awhile ago. Used after doing a search for the term I want to replace of course. (Link to the add on when you click the image.)

      • Nice! Thanks for that!

      • Hey that's a real handy thingy, Garfield, thanks!   :D

      • Oh, Firefox add-ons, you get me every time.  Thanks for sharing the secret sauce. If it's alright with you, I'm going to add this tip to the newsletter, share it with our support team, and insert a tip on our Help Center documentation so future language-manipulating NCs can benefit.
