Translations in Plugins

If I add translations in a plugin as explained in the docs, how should I handle terms that I know the panel already uses (like search or open and such)?

  • Should I still add those just to be sure in case Kirby removes them from the core later on?
  • And if I add common strings like search or open, how will that effect the panel: which translation will take precedence, the core’s or the plugin ones?

The Panel gets its translations directly from the translations folder. So what you do in your plugin doesn’t affect the Panel.

Yes, I think you should.
