What It Doesn't Do

  • Allow editing of "main language" not there
  • No merge "main language" strings to translated languages (same goes for delete)
  • No dirty flags when main language string changes

What I Don't Like

  • It hosts itself with its own Web server
  • Rather old unmaintained dependencies
  • No Web Service interface that we could program against
