I suggest you ...

Allow import/copy-paste on the taxonomy edit screen

Currently, you have to add data to the taxonomy editor by hand. It would be great to be able to import or copy-paste from a website/spreadsheet.

    We’re considering if we can make a basic form of this available fairly soon.

    This may mean accepting only a predefined format that we’d have samples for.

    Now that all library content is available to everyone this feature is even more valuable.

        This would be a really useful upgrade!

        Same comment a Rogerio... Full IOC translations for 20 languages could be made from the Multilingual Excel at www.worldbirdnames.org alone.

        This would be an excellent idea. In addition, as more & more people are adopting BirdJournal as a user-friendly multi-device tool, the demand for further taxa will only increase: UK vascular plants would be extremely helpful to many recorders of wildlife. John Rankin

        I agree. Also I am working on a synonym pack for Portugal and would be great to be able to import a synonym pack instead of painfully typing each bird

        This would be useful. I've just completed a whole load of UK Taxonomies (more in progress) and it has taken a long time. I've had to copy/paste individual entries- plenty of keystrokes!
