Dictionary Dashboard

Import, export and edit dictionary items directly from the dashboard

Edit dictionary items
Edit existing dictionary items, without access to the Settings section in Umbraco. Meant for content editors, which should not be allowed to create or delete dictionary items, and should definitly not have access to the entire Settings section.

Import / Export dictionary items
Export the entire Umbraco dictionary to XML, make your changes, and import the XML to update your dictionary. This is extremely useful when using external translation agencies, that will not have access to your Umbraco installation. Import and export can be limited to specific languages.
