My format proposal combines langv1 with langv2 and you get this format for one string.
startphrase
id: (string id)
desc: (string description)
user:
source:
target 1: (target 1 string)
target 2: (target 2 string)
dest:
target 1: (target 1 string)
target 2: (target 2 stringz)
voice:
target 1: (target 1 string)
target 2: (target 2 string)
endphrase
I have examined both langv1 and langv2 files and noticed that langv1 is easier to edit. I still wanted to maintain the ability to have 2 strings for each target, so I proposed this format.
This task depends upon

Reason for closing:  Rejected
Additional comments about closing:  If anything, your version makes it harder, since it makes the strings stand less out than in langv2. If anything, we want to move towards a full XML-based langformat ( FS#8233  ) to facilitate easier scripting and programming of language-related tools.

In which way is this better than langv2? As far as I can tell, you just removed some spacing and the brackets.

I don't know about you, but I would find this easier to edit for someone that knows nothing about tags/html/xml.
