Easy way to change field label for all UIs?

How would a customer change a field label for all UIs that use this field/attribute, which is not really a translation?


What I was able to find seems to be that we would need to edit Resource Bundles and that it will be much easier in Release 8:


1. Section More on Resource Bundles in https://blogs.oracle.com/fadevrel/entry/translating_your_customizations has this key passage:


This is an industry open standard (OASIS) format XML file with the extension .xliff, and store translated values for the strings used by ADF at run-time. The general process is that these values are exported from the MDS repository, manually edited, and then imported back in again.This needs to be done by an administrator, via either WLST commands or through Enterprise Manager as per the screenshot below. This is detailed out in the Fusion Applications Extensibility Guide.


2. That blog posting also says this will get easier in Release 8:


Currently planned for Release 8 is something called the User Interface (UI) Text Editor. This tool will allow the editing of all the text shown on the pages and forms of Fusion Application. This will provide a search based on a particular term or word, say “Worker”, and will allow it to be adjusted, say to “Employee”, which then updates all the Resource Bundles that contain it.


3. I found the video How To Customize Field Labels but it seems that is one UI label at a time...
