For plugin authors hooking into the Manage->posts page it would be nice to be able to create a $h2_[new_title]. (see attached suggestion)

Correction so literal string is not a variable. Translation is executed prior to filtering.

Patch added - any chance of this getting into 2.5? It's just a small change.... (crosses fingers)

Filtering the string before translation could break translations. Literal strings, not variables, must be passed to _c().

#5 @nerrad

I've tested it and providing the plugin author hooks in correctly it won't break existing translations.

#6 @ryan

The patch does not mark the literal string for translation thus that string will not be in the POT file.

#7 @nerrad

I'm still confused then, why the existing patch tests successfully with different language files loaded in WP (even after testing with a plugin using the new filter hooks).

Are you saying that automatically generated .pot files will miss this string with the patch (although existing .mo's will work as expected)? Please forgive my lack of knowledge here. Hopefully at least this is a good idea that just needs more work :)

Dang it...just noticed the error I made in the code - it's not the patch I tested lol. Uploading new patch now for eval.

_c( $h2_result_reorder )

This will result in the literal string '$h2_result_order' being placed in the message catalog rather than the actual string we want to be translated. You can only filter a string after it has been translated.

Thanks for the explanation - confirmed what I thought your were meaning but what I still didn't fully understand. Now I do. So, I've translated the string right in the apply_filters call (see new patch/diff). This should work, BUT it will require docs to indicate to plugin authors using this hook that they need to run the translation on the string before returning it. Make sense?
