ok, my bad, I had originally problems when I didn't escape them in my
greps, I didn't try yours since I had already done the job. Perhaps
different grep version.

Sorry about that. I started replying to you only but after writing all
the commands there in the hurry I just thought to CC the list at the
end. I forgot to be polite there, I apologise. I should have also
changed the topic to something like "command examples while doing the
translations" so someone would find it while looking for help, but
well, too late.

Ok, matter of taste, either way works. It is a personal preference,
I'll not argue. Good that you pointed it out, so people will not get
misguided by me.

I agree, everyone works the way they are most productive, and I wanted
to share my method in hopes that someone starting translations could
find any piece of it useful.
