That's exactly what I would be messing with. No more. Thanks for the info. The ratings are in English, but the "PG-13" signs are also shown in the Manage Videos screen and I thought I'd just translate it.
I was hesitant because they only appear in one place (RatingsToPL).

No, it's not, it's in English.

Only in that context.
