Reinstalling Addon / Reparsing Addon.xml


I am using the my_changes addon and as I add new features I am adding language variables to addon.xml file.

How can I get these re-imported into the database without uninstalling the addon? Is there a simple way? Otherwise I have to add the language vars to addon.xml and then individually add them to the translations OR export translations.

This doesn't just apply to translations, sometimes I add columns to database tables too and would like to run these statements too.


Hello natewallis,

You can do this by making language CSV and then uploading by using import feature in exim

For this goto

Administration > import > transaction

Then select language tab

Their you import your file

Thank you

As alternative, you can upload .po file on the Administration -> Languages -> Manage languages page
