Yes, I've seen the script, it uses the method also explained by Milo in
another post: converting the mo file in our system in po files then making a
greping in them.
But this isn't an easy way to make a search for two reasons:
- it is a difficult way to do this, for example for people of the translations
teams that have made a huge contribution on a specific application because it
is the one they knows better or are particularly interested, but they aren't
very confident with shell commands
- it is a way impossible to follow if you have a report by someone using a
previous relaese than what's installed in your computer, for example Dapper
if you have Edgy
- if you would accord with your team to change the translation of a term, how
you can do it in the evolving translations? You have to wait the next
For the workaround of downloading the pos. it's a way much time consuming
because you have to wait the export process.
Finally, now you have to follow this two ways but I hope the new feature will
be implemented soon.
