I have a SharePoint 2010 site that I need to export and import on another Web App. That website has been customized and uses the built in MUI (Multilingual User Interface).

For example : First, I create a List in English with all the columns. Then I switch SharePoint Display Language to French (in the UserMenu) and rename manually the List and its columns in French. So when I switch language all the identifiers are translated.

When I tried to export/import that site I noticed that all my French translations are gone. Is there a way to keep those using the stsadm Export/Import method?

If this is a publishing site then this link probably won't help you, infact import/export on publishing sites is a nightmare and prone to errors.
