#5699 closed enhancement (duplicate)

Enable search for parts of strings in translate consistency tool

Reported by: tobifjellner's profile tobifjellner Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: normal
Component: Translate Site & Plugins Keywords:


The "translate" consistency tool ( ) currently only checks for full string matches.
A different use case is when a translator wants to check how a certain term has been translated elsewhere. For this, a similar tool that would search for partial matches against source strings, in order to see how this term was translated.

The UI could be implemented as yet another checkbox, like the current "Case Sensitive" checkbox. The search itself could in this case be limited to, say, 100 first matches (instead of the 500 that is used for consistency).

I'd like this search to first check against latest WP core project and META, and after that in plugins and themes.

Is this feasible with regards to database stress?
