Sometimes if you have a really complicated key structure in the Dictionary settings section in Umbraco, editors cannot find the correct dictionary key they need to find and update, because all they see is the text the dictionary key writes out on the page, and they may not have access to templates to find out what the corresponding key name is. This package adds a dashboard to the translation section of Umbraco that allows editors to search by the 'translated text' they know or by 'dictionary key' to locate the dictionary item they need to update.

and the original update for Umbraco 6 here:


Now available to install via Nuget: Install-Package tooorangey.uDictionaryItemSearch


This is no longer a custom dashboard! - just an implementation of ISearchableTree, for the dictionary tree - this means you search for your Dictionary Keys, or Values from the main backoffice search.

If the match is in a 'Value' rather than a 'key' it will show which language the match is made in.

Version 8.6.0 is for Umbraco 8 ( 1.0.11 is for Umbraco V7 - Thanks to Gordon Saxby for the V7 fix)
