It would be great to have an export/import function for site content that needs translation.
Preferably XML (and if possible XLIFF).

    The only why I would think this is possible is to make each module implement some methods, which can deal with the XML-files.
    To be honest I don't see many use-cases, as most sites have different structures for each language instead of being a 1-on-1-copy.

    I work in a translation agency and we have to deal with this on a daily basis, would be great. Exists in Drupal and Joomla.

    I would also love to see a function like this. I also have to deal with this problem very often.
