    Description

      It would be great if plugin devs could use plugins to override translations of other plugins and the Moodle core.

      Install a plugin -> Moodle uses the customized string
      Remove a plugin -> Moodle immediately uses the original string

      Example use case:
      1. By default the login form says "Username"
      2. Admin installs a plugin called "Login using phone number"
      3. The form now says "Username / Phone"

      This would make it much easier to install/remove plugins because the translations wouldn't have to be changed manually with the Language customization feature.
