Localization export order
I'm trying to export certain texts for localization. The texts are located in an array in some asset. I run GatherText and then export to .PO file. The problem is that the texts are not gathered the way it stored in an array, but alphabetically! This would be a nightmare to translate, because the context of text (surrounding dialog lines) are lost.
How can I affect an order in which texts are gathered or exported? Any solution would do, even changes in the engine code.

The sorting happens in
Generally we find order to be unimportant since once the PO is imported into a translation provider the entries will be sorted however there system wants them to be anyway (although it sounds like you're editing the POs directly, which is also fine).
If you're using our dialogue waves for your audio, then these have the ability to provide translation notes that appear as comments in the PO file. If you're not, then string tables (defined from CSV or in code) have the ability to provide meta-data that appears as comments in the PO file.
