This plugin lets you connect your Sketch and Crowdin projects. Localize the UI and review designs within different languages before programming starts. Send mockups for translation to Crowdin in a click and upload translations back to your design tool. Synchronize texts any time needed. Preview and customize the translated copy directly in Sketch.
You can download the latest release from our GitHub repository.
Crowdin for Sketch plugin can also be installed with Sketch Runner.
Before you can start sending translations to Crowdin and upload them back to Sketch, follow these steps:
You can send texts for translations from different Sketch files/projects to the same or different projects in Crowdin. To change the Crowdin project you want to connect the Sketch file with, choose Plugins > Crowdin > Connect to Crowdin and choose the necessary project in Crowdin from the dropdown list.
You can send either texts from a selected page or selected artboard for translation.
If you send texts from a Sketch page with a couple of artboards on it, a separate folder will be created in your Crowdin project. This folder will contain HTML files for each artboard the selected Sketch page contains.
The folder and file names will contain specific IDs from Sketch, but they won’t be visible for your translators or proofreaders. They will only see the titles of the page and artboards as they are named in your Sketch project.
To send texts for translation:
Once you have the files uploaded to the project, you can invite contributors to translate and proofread the texts. Learn about translation approaches you can use in Crowdin.
You can synchronize texts between Sketch and Crowdin projects any time you want to test the translated copy inside Sketch.
For this, follow these steps:
