Localize your Android app with Localazy CLI.

Upload resource files with strings to Localazy and manage your translations easily. Download translated files back.

1. Install Localazy CLI for your operating system.

    "type": "android",
    "files": "src/main/res/values/strings.xml"
  "download": {
    "files": "src/main/res/values-${langAndroidRes}/${file}"

3. Upload the source strings with localazy upload whenever you change them.
