"labels" prevent translation of many phrases - remove "labels" mechanism

    Details

      Description

      By forcing word order, the "labels" mechanism (Admin → Define Labels) prevents proper translation of many phrases in languages other than English.

      Multiple people should work on this at once.

      Requires lots of search & replace or hand-editing. For instance, changing JSP or FTL pages to use phrases instead of concatenated words & labels.

            To resolve this problem of concatenated translations, existing JSPs would need to be rewritten or better yet migrate remaining JSP pages to clean phrase based FTL.
