Hello, I must respond because this feature is broken and Crowdin should fix it, and your unrelated reply may wrongly suggest misunderstanding on my part. While my response sadly does not solve the OP’s question either, I did read his question (I have looked for the same thing before) and I did try to get the feature to work myself. It seems from your reply that you have not read the prior messages in the conversation and certainly not tried to use this Verbal Expression feature yourself . As I wrote, the expression I tried with not effect does not throw an “Invalid Verbal Expression” error like other tries did, therefore it is a valid Verbal Expression, and as such it is supposed to do something (in this case, match only results which start with the word ‘word’, literally), but in fact it does not affect the results of the search in any way. In my example, the literal word “word” between quote marks could be replaced by any other word of your choice, the point is this Verbal Expression is not having any effect. You can try the feature yourself and update us if you find that I was using it incorrectly.
The original poster of this question thread linked in his question the article from Crowdin that is supposed to show how to use their own Verbal Expressions feature. That article is very deficient, having examples for only some of the arguments supposedly supported by this feature, and zero complete use examples that show an entire Verbal Expression search and its results (what the OP was asking to see). The article is useless, as the OP was pointing out. I tried to use a simple verbal expression in my search filter based on the partial examples in that article, and the verbal expression, while valid, does not have the expected effect (or any effect at all). Again, you are welcome to try it yourself and report back. The OP and I both would really appreciate it if someone could show how this feature actually works (if it does, which it seems not to).
Regarding regex (Regular Expressions) being “hard to implement technically”, regex is a syntax for string matching in use for decades and supported in many different programming languages. What I gather from searching about Verbal Expressions is that “Verbal Expressions” in the use we are discussing are supposed to be a more readable and user friendly version of regex, built on top of regex, so if anything they are adding complication to regex, and if they in fact work then they work because there is regex working underneath. In Crowdin’s own article about their Verbal Expressions feature mentioned above, they explicitly write in their half-empty table that the argument ‘start’ is equivalent to using the caret ^ symbol before a sequence of characters, which is the normal regex syntax for that condition (beginning with …). So if their Verbal Expressions can work, it is because regex can work in their queries.
The OP’s question defines what they are asking for precisely, and gives another 5 specific and clearly understandable questions, which are also not supported by the current features, and would make a lot of sense. It is a very good question. The first reply he got from another user 2 months ago offers nothing, the person does not seem to have tried the feature by themselves.
My comment from a few hours ago intended to confirm that the feature does not work as expected providing a specific example of its use where the Verbal Expression is received as valid, but has no effect. It is not solving the question, but it is supporting the idea that the feature is not working and that the documentation offered for this feature is useless. The last reply to my comment, again offers nothing. I am typing all this because this feature would be very useful, and the present search function, while usable, is lacking features that it could very well support and gain a lot from. Which is what this question thread is about.
