Import new App Texts for Languages

Is there a way to import (via CSV) new application texts (that are not previously created using the “Create Text” button)? For a text-intensive website it’s really time-consuming for a Developer to have to manually create every text before you can start importing language translations for them. It would be useful if the texts could be curated in Excel before-hand and then imported into the App (whereupon Bubble can then create a new entry for each App text it doesn’t already have).

Another issue we noticed is that you cannot import an App text translation without knowing the “text_name” of the App text (which you can only discover if you export all the App texts). So it seems the correct instruction should be, Create Texts manually, Export, Edit translations and then import again. If you don’t do this you get a message on Import “field text_name not found.”
