  • @24ma13wg the question in your previous comment should be a NEW quesion, are you going to post that soon? If not I might do so ... – Pierre.Vriens Feb 3 '18 at 16:27
  • @Pierre.Vriens sure go ahead. I can see that there is a column in the {locales_target} table called customized, which takes a boolean value, but I don't know what it means? – 24ma13wg Feb 5 '18 at 8:17
  • @24ma13wg As Pierre.Vriens says I think that your question is answered here, but now you're asking another different thing, so I think that you can accept the answer here and write another question. If you do it, let me know. – Adrian Cid Almaguer Feb 12 '18 at 16:25
