Is there a module or hack out there that allows one to edit a language file for a module from the Admin area?
I figured if templates can be edited that way, surely it wouldnt be that difficult to edit language files?

--> open the language file
--> load all variables into a long form
--> then write the changes back to the language file

The people I have managing XOOPS sites I create (who aint that techie) would like to update the language used in modules, but changing them via ftp/homesite would be too complicated for them.

Any ideas? Would xLanguage or MultiLanguages be able to do this?

The language tool by kiang should be able to do that.

Thanks Rowd - hadnt seen that in my searching.

I installed the module and played around with it. Its more for translating languages but I should be able to hack it for my needs since it already shows all installed modules, and you can open each language file and edit the variables.

Cheers!
