Is it possible to translate only a specific part of a text description?

Example of my text:
Breathe a cone of rancid fire, choking opponents hit. This attack stops them from using breath weapons for #Duration and dealing up to #TotalDamage.
I want to switch #Duration to [x] seconds and #TotalDamage to [x] points of damage.

But when trying to modify this stuff i'm running into the problem of not being able to use the i2 localize component because it needs a set description(Which will change in parts for me). And Google Translate is slow not working with ui well since it loads late (about 3 seconds for longer descriptions).

Additional context:
I am already searching for those keywords and replacing them with something along the lines of <color=\"purple\">" + duration + " seconds" + "</color> so the final text after replacing it will look like

Breathe a cone of rancid fire, choking opponents hit. This attack stops them from using breath weapons for <color="purple">1.5 seconds</color>and dealing up to <color="orange">480 total damage</color>.

What should I do?

Thanks for taking the time to read this!

Hi,
You can use Parameters to modify parts of the texts.

Check this page for some info and there is also an example scene that shows them in action.

I was looking at the parameters which you linked but it never shows an example of setting a global parameter by code only taking a specifically designated one. Can you toss me an example of setting one to a value then grabbing that value? I'm assuming creating that is just whatever the term you are looking for is in the text box ( {[x]} )
