The problem, for me, is that the list is VERY big, and there is no way
to search for a template. This is very frustrating.
The same applies to the translation screen itself: you can't search
for a specific string you want to translate, you have to browse ALL
strings and find the one you want.

For what I saw yesterday the sort option just sort the entries being
displayed and not the whole list.
