Multilingual locale batch operations

On our radar
Sometimes we have the exactly same text several times in an application. How about informing the translation just once?

How would this work, interfacewise?
We have already 3 buttons that apply one behaviour to all selected items. How about a combobox for the brhaviour (instead of the buttons), a text input field and an unique button to apply the settings (behaviour and translation) to all selected items?
Hi João!

we already have a text input that filters the items by text, location, identifier or translation. You can use this to filter the items you want, select them, and after apply one of the 3 translations behaviors. This would not be the same?

André, I think João wants to apply actual translations or the like. But I'm hard pressed to come up with a good use case for that, given the added complexity.
Kilian, you're right. Some use cases: - No items to show... - New ... (action link) - Buttons: Search, Reset, Save So, if you have so many CRUDs on your application, I think this would help.
Yeah, I can see the use case for that. Perhaps some default translation list or the like. So if you enter "Search", you automatically get the translation.
Another good idea...
Oh now I see, my bad... :)

Kilian, default translations seems nice!

João,  for a large CRUDs scenario, a not very good workaround would be export the language resource to an excel file, apply some logic there to translate and then import back. But yeah, inform the translation just once would be nice, good idea. Liked :)
