    ... and not just Admin Menus.

    Don't know if anyone has tried this already.

    Why?
    I have renamed a lot of Admin Menus on my MU. Also, I have renamed a lot of other items. So every time I upgrade I have to rewrite those hacks. Maybe someone likes doing it, I don't know. I hate it.

    Solution?
    I thought that maybe I could use some of Translation Tools and do an English to English translation which will have renamed Admin Menus and all other items that I want to rename.

    Good or bad idea?
    What do you think about it? Could this be the right way to do it? Common, say something.

    How?
    I've never done something similar so please advise me on how to do it. Today was the first time I've heard about .mo file type. This is what I've found so far: http://codex.wordpress.org/Translating_WordPress

    That actually sounds like a pretty good idea... if it works. :D
