Why is localizing webhelp responsive in 20.1 more complicated?

I was searching for documentation on localizing webhelp output and found this page:

https://www.oxygenxml.com/doc/versions/ ... bhelp.html

The steps MADE PERFECT SENSE, but did not work for me (using Oxygen 20.1). I later found this page:

https://www.oxygenxml.com/doc/versions/ ... responsive

which explains how to do it correctly in the newest version of Oxygen. So I'm able to translate the webhelp output as expected.

However, I'm really curious *why* the steps to translate in 20.1 are so different. . To me, the steps described in Oxygen 18 are very intuitive. But in 20.1, I have to create a new plugin, and run a script. Why can't I just create new strings files in the folders and expect them to work? Why is it so much more complicated?

Hello,

The current procedure helps when you update the WebHelp plugin, without losing language customization as there is a separate plugin. Using the previous procedure, during the updating process were losing any customization you have.
