+		Recode categorical data
+	</title>
+	<summary>
+		Allows you to recode a vector with categorical data. This plugin also allows to recode vectors that are coded numerically, but this only makes
+		sense for numeric vectors with only a limited number of unique values.
+	</summary>
+	<usage>
+		Select the vector to recode, and where to store the recoded data. Select the storage mode of the resulting data. Then, on the second tab, specify
+		the recodings to make.
+	</usage>

+		<setting id="saveto_select">
+			Select whether to overwrite/replace the input vector with the recoded data, or save to a different vector.
+		</setting>
+		<setting id="saveto">
+			Pick a name (and optionally a container) for the recoded data.

+		<setting id="set">
+			The upper half of this tab allows you to specify recodings for individual input values. To add more recodings, click the "add/+"-button. To
+			remove recodings, click the "remove/x"-button. For each recoding, select the following:
+		</setting>
+		<setting id="old_values">
+			For each recoding to perform, first select the old value(s) to recode. This can be either NA/missing, or select non-NA value(s) on the left hand side,
+			and add them to the values to be recoded by clicking the arrow-button. If several input values are to be replaced with one output value,
+			you can select them all at once.
+		</setting>
+		<setting id="new_value">
+			Enter the new value (or set it to be NA). For factors and character vectors, values will be quoted, automatically.
+		</setting>
+		<setting id="other">
+			Any input values (including NAs) for which no recoding was specified, above, can either be left unchanged ("Copy"), or can be replaced
+			with a specific value or NA.
