Quick Start - Java Properties

Localize your app with Java Properties localizations and Localazy CLI.

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

1. Install Localazy CLI for your operating system.

2. Create a configuration file localazy.json in the root of your project. You can start with our sample:

{

  "writeKey": "your-write-key",
  "readKey": "your-read-key",
  
  "upload": {  
    "type": "properties",
    "files": "translations/strings_en.properties"         
  },
  
  "download": {
    "files": "translations/strings_${lang}.properties"
  }
  
}

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

4. Download translated files with localazy download before building your app.
