as a little help for checking the length of original and translation, I did a quick and dirty hack in PHP.
So anyone able to run PHP (e.g. local XAMPP environment (see http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp.html
for such a local installation)) is free to use this script
Usage is simple, just give a file, change delimiter if you use other than semicolon and hit submit. Then it lists file in the following format:
|English ||7 chars|
and so on.
seems to be that at least on my system you have to put the files in the folder where the PHP script is when using Firefox. On my system it gives errors when I try to load from another location. IE seems to have no problem with it.
is that the script only support two fields seperated by the delimiter. If you have files with more than original and one translation I don't know what happens.
Of course you have to rename the extension to .php after download for it to work.
Hope this helps a little bit.
