Hi @likemusic - welcome to Wordpress Trac!
I often go through performance tagged tickets and other PHP-related improvements. I'm just a regular volunteer with no commit privileges, so please take this just as an observation.

Here is a benchmark of the suggested change. There doesn't seem to be a noticeable performance difference between two approaches. However, it definitely looks like an improvement in code clarity, following DRY.

I believe there is some work undergoing to revamp this component with a modern approach. I'm sure someone with more understanding will comment soon.

Hi @ayeshrajans !

Thanx for review. According to your test for old version php (before 7.0) using constant decrease time almost for 50%. It's good indicator and imho shoud be merged to develop branch because still many WP sites running on old php versions.

I made this fix because loading translations take most time of request handling after installing some extensions.

I looked for MO loader but can't find any other obvious way to increase translation loading performance.

Seems that it's requires to use some cache to not parse all mo files for every requests (that makes every 30 sec when admin page is opened in browser).

Looks like there is no performance gain with this change on newer PHP versions. Given that and the low number of sites running on PHP 5.6, I am removing the performance focus. Considering closing because the readability doesn't change much either IMO.

Hi there, thanks for the ticket!

I agree with comment:5. There is no performance benefit on PHP 7.1+ per the tests above, and with only 6.5% of sites running on PHP 5.6 or 7.0 as of May 2023, I think we should look at other ways to optimize translations instead.
