Current problems with the localization of image files with text layers
The assessment of the extent of work for initial analysis and resource planning can already be complicated, especially if dealing with a large number of images with an unclear number of text layers.

It is clear that in this procedure, it is easy to miss errors, overlook text or copy it twice.
