I am not shure that is worth the effort. From what I saw, most common
templates are a plain translation of C. Their translators were not brave
enough to do a real localization. So the users still needs to adjust
them. And that is likely easier done in GnuCash. Eventually you should
inform them in some way about this?

OTOH it might be a good fallback, if the user didn't use GnuCash before
or with to use the app with another program.

Just my 2¢
