Hi Yianni!

That depends in which (translation) context it is...

If it's in RatingsToPL (Ratings To Parental Level), it is used to 
determine the parental level based on the ratings so changing this, if 
the ratings you have are in English, would break the parental level.

Thing is, I'm pretty sure that there's a problem with that bit of code 
and that the translation lookups aren't done properly.

Fixing it is relatively easy (missing declaration) but until Stuart add 
multiple rating systems support it might actually do more harm than good 
since it would most likely break that movie rating to parental level 
matching unless the movie ratings you get are in your native language 
(which I don't think is the case currently).

If it's not in RatingsToPL, could you please tell me where these are?

Have a nice day!
