Quick Start - XLIFF

Localize your app with XLIFF and Localazy CLI.

Upload XLIFF 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": "xliff",
    "features": ["use_project_lang"],
    "files": "translations/en.xliff"         
  },
  
  "download": {
    "files": "translations/${lang}.xliff"
  }
  
}

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

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


XLIFF version (1.2 or 2.0) is automatically detected.

By using use_project_lang in features, you force Localazy to use your project’s base language for the source translation.

Learn more details about our XLIFF 1.2 and XLIFF 2.0 support including plurals and arrays.

You can upload all your existing translations too! Learn more about it.
