    There is a find and replace feature under Languages & Phrases -> Find in Phrases. Can be dangerous though.

    You can also use a replacement variable in your style but it will replace all text, even within posts.

    From my experience in translating vBulletin (I have done a 100% complete translation) there is no quick way if you want it to make sense. However changing the most commonly used ones shouldn't take that long time. But I would say that it is just to start type.

    As a side note I have translated "threads" to something more like "topic" in my translation, "threads" isn't really the best word in my opinion and in Swedish I think it is even worse.

    Thanks, but if it were that easy I wouldn't be asking how to do a mass edit. Have you actually gone to the phrase manager and looked at how many instances of "thread" there are to edit?

    Acp > phrase manager > edit the word "thread" and see if it does what you require.

    started a topic [Forum] Changing a phrase en masse.

    Changing a phrase en masse.

    I would like to change the phrase "Thread" to "Topic" on all the buttons, links and other references forum-wide. There are a bazillion phrases with "thread" in them. Is there a db query to change them all at once, or am I looking at a marathon phrase editing session?
