I'm having hard time using Views with i18n Views. What gets me very irritated is that the translations of global fields (headers, footers, etc.) get lost whenever I make changes to that View. I would feel more comfortable if I could somehow permanently attach to a view some custom data, variables, i18n string arrays, and use them both in Views UI and tpl files.
I would imagine to declare a variable named
%my_footer and provide its translations in a module. Then, in a footer I imagine being able to enter something like
<h3>This is %my_footer</h3> or call in a tpl file by saying something like ` and have it rendered in the current translation.
The only thing I would hate to compromise on (as instructed by many users here) is to use PHP code in Views UI text fields.
So, is my scenario possible? I just love to have a single data source...
