First, make sure to read this page entirely:


Then, train yourself in a python shell:

> python2
Python 2.7.14 (default, Jan 28 2018, 14:32:44) 
[GCC 6.4.0] on linux2
>>> import re
>>> nametrans_test = lambda folder: re.sub('^origin_name$', 'destination_name', folder)
>>> nametrans_test('origin_name')
>>> nametrans_test('another_name')
>>> nametrans_reverse = lambda folder: re.sub('^destination_name$', 'origin_name', folder)
>>> nametrans_reverse('destination_name')
>>> nametrans_reverse('got_it')

Let us know if you have more specific questions.

Good luck! ,-)
