Description (last modified by SergeyBiryukov)

Related to this ticket #35548, the bulk edit taxonomy tool labels can be a little misleading, as the feature does not allow for bulk editing, but rather bulk assignment.

This patch simply prepends "Assign" to the labels to make it more clear..

Hi @wpnook, thanks for the ticket!

Unfortunately, edit_category_labels.patch is not localizable, see ticket:17609:3 and ticket:19099:1. We tend to avoid using post type and taxonomy names in generic strings (or concatenating them with a generic string).

If the consensus is to introduce a new string, we would need a new label in get_taxonomy_labels() for that.

Ok, all clear. I'll submit a patch this afternoon that handles it via get_taxonomy_labels(). Introduce 'bulk_edit' or something similar.

Not sure if the "Assign" prefix is really needed here. The meta boxes have the same title and removing/adding terms is supported too.
