Translating UMS Maps

When I translate maps to another language,
But replacing one by one searching through every single string in the map seems to be really tedious.
Also if the map updates, I have to keep track of every details of the changes of the map to keep thing symmetric.
Or I have to copy the original map to start replacing the strings all over again...

Is there any faster method for this?
Any help is appreciated.

Faster than one string after another? I'm not sure what you have in mind there. Like dumping all text into google translator and then dump it back? I don't think anything like that exists nor that the results would be satisfying, so string by string is the way to go.

I see you !

Keep a spreadsheet of "orignal string" -> "trnaslated string", then you can look up existing translations when redoing it? Possibly even script that.
