Mod reverting "FULL - Name" field to english language


Hey, y'all! I need your help or at least a discussion on good practices regarding this problem:


My game (Skyrim SE) is set to german. For some reason a lot of mods have "hardcoded" english names for cells etc., overwriting the localization of the base game.

I would like to fix that. Right now i am in the process of overwriting the mod's .esp with a translated .esp i made myself, by copying every german "FULL - Name" field from the Skyrim.esp in SSEdit. This works, but is very tedious to do and it is still a "hardcoded" entry (now in german) the problem would resurface if i would switch to french for example.


My question is if there's a simpler way? Like making the entry forward the entry in the master .esp instead of overwriting it?


Attached screenshot shows the problem. The master contains the translated string, while the "Particle Patch" reverts it to the english translation:


I would go and drag the german string "Totmannsruh" over the english string "Dead Men's Respite". But i hope theres an easier way, since the translation is already part of the base game.


I am very new to editing mods and I am somewhat tired right now, so i hope my way of expressing the problem wasn't too confusing. Feel free to ask further questions if anything is is unclear

Thank you

There is "Restore record names from master" script in xEdit for that.

Thank you!

This reduced the workload from half an hour to less than a second :D

      I am pretty frustrated with SSEEdit lately.  There is no 64 bit version with the latest download and I cannot get my older version (4.0.3h) to work anymore.  It keeps telling me there was an error and that editing is disabled.  I can't run scripts or anything.  (There IS NO ERROR in the log).  Was something changed?  Every time I try running 4.0.4 I get an out of memory error.  Whats more I can no longer post on Discord to get help.  I have to sign up?
      EDIT: More Info: Version 4.0.3h used to work fine without using the 64 bit version until a couple of weeks ago.  The 64 bit version seems to be working ok so I guess I will use that until I get an answer.

      Short version: I have a complete list of cells copied to an .esp, and I don't want to have to go through and flag each one as Deleted individually. Is there a way to do this to all the cells in the .esp?
      Long version: I'm using a replacer for a dead shrub. The replacer makes it a much prettier 3D green shrub, but Bethesda placed the dead shrub in all kinds of caves and mines, so I want to remove it from those cells. Ain't nothing green supposed to be growing in there. So I found the shrub in xEdit, copied every reference over into an .esp and removed the ones that could realistically be home to lush green flora. I'm now left with looooong list of cells each with only a few Placed Objects of these shrubs, but going through them all and changing flags individually is gonna be a nightmare. So I'd much rather see if there is a way for me to do this across every cell I've copied?

      I was trying to create a patch but SSEEdit wouldn't let me.  The plugins were inaccessible. The plugins were grayed out with a line through them.  What's going on?
