Frederic Hemberger has written 30 posts for Unofficial RedDot CMS blog

No dots for me anymore. Thanks.

Although the CMS already includes a function to transfer the filenames of a language variant to all languages, this plugin – quite similar to the “Transfer RedDot Descriptions” plugin released yesterday – takes you a step further: All filenames are exported to an XML file which then can be translated to any other language before importing them back into the CMS.
