    Thanks freddie... the Template Search feature suggestion helped a lot... at least now I can tell in which template the phrase is used in and knowing which template, I can also look at the actual page in the forum as well to get an idea to see how to translate.

    You can use the template search and search for x_y_requests. If it is a phrase that appears in the Admin CP, there isn't a simple way to do what you ask.

    In the below example, just looking at the phrase, you know that "x" will be replaced by by the user's name. So, you know how to translate accordingly:

    $vbphrase[add_x_to_your_ignorelist]
    Add {1} to your Ignore List


    However, looking at the bottom example, you may have no clue in what "x" and "y" will be replaced by. So, you may not know how to correctly translate:

    $vbphrase[x_y_requests]
    {1} ({2} requests)

    So, my question to the developers:
    How can I find out where a particular phrase is used in the forum so translation can be done in the correct way.

    Would a developer please explain how I can find out where a particular phrase is used when I'm doing translation?

    Thank you.
