Subject Re: Growing size of UI*Label.xml files
Date Fri, 03 Oct 2014 11:56:33 GMT
Looking at the tool(s) behind http://translate.apache.org, being pootle and
the translation toolkit I see that it supports both. Though the xml file is
in the XLIFF format, which is different to ours.

For more info see:
