For translation purposes, a number range field named "Listing" must be renamed to "Listagem". There are hundreds of "Listings" in my text. I don't see how to do that in the user interface.

The dumb approach is to create a new number range field "Listagem" and replace all ocurrences of the field "Listing" with "Listagem". There are hundreds of them. I also have references in the text to these number ranges such as "see in Listing 123" that must change to "veja na Listagem 123", and another hundred of occurrences. In references fields "Listing" is the category and "123" the field itself.

A less dumb approach is to save the text as flat XML (fodt) and execute a search and replace of the field "Listing" with "Listagem" in a good text editor.

But I wonder if I can do it directly with fields in the UI. Any other suggestion?

Hi @Olivier,

Looks like none of us know how to to do this directly in the UI. Sorry!

Perhaps file an enhancement bug?
