Note: Custom services are available only for Organization Plans. Check all pricing options available to choose the most suitable.

Custom File Formats

  <p>
    File formats that are not officially supported will be recognized as plain text files (if they have text content) or as graphic assets.
  </p>
  
  <p>
    Our team can add special code to support your original file formats and make sure that translators see only translatable texts instead of the whole file content. With this approach, you can manage custom file formats more effectively.
  </p>
  
  <p>
    Email Crowdin customer success team at <a href="&#109;&#x61;i&#108;&#x74;&#111;&#58;&#x73;&#117;&#x70;&#x70;&#111;&#x72;t&#64;&#x63;&#114;&#111;&#x77;&#100;&#x69;&#x6e;&#46;&#x63;&#x6f;&#109;">&#x73;&#117;&#x70;&#x70;&#111;&#x72;t&#64;&#x63;&#114;&#111;&#x77;&#100;&#x69;&#x6e;&#46;&#x63;&#x6f;&#109;</a> to start working with custom file formats in your project.
  </p>

Custom File Export

  <p>
    By default, we export the translations in the same format as the source files. For example, if you upload XML file to Crowdin you'll have XML file exported. <br />Our developers can make a special processor if you want to configure custom settings for your file export. Some use cases:
  </p>
  
  <ul>
    <li>
      You manage both iOS and Android applications. With our help, you can upload just one file format (e.g. XML) to Crowdin and then have 2 separate file types (.xml for Android and .strings for iOS) on export.
    </li>
    <li>
      You upload a key-value file (e.g. JSON) and want to modify it in Crowdin directly. We can temporarily convert your file to CSV file format to allow you adding strings online. The exported file will remain in the original format.
    </li>
  </ul>
  
  <p>
    Get in touch with our support team at <a href="&#109;&#x61;i&#108;&#x74;&#111;&#58;&#x73;&#117;&#x70;&#x70;&#111;&#x72;t&#64;&#x63;&#114;&#111;&#x77;&#100;&#x69;&#x6e;&#46;&#x63;&#x6f;&#109;">&#x73;&#117;&#x70;&#x70;&#111;&#x72;t&#64;&#x63;&#114;&#111;&#x77;&#100;&#x69;&#x6e;&#46;&#x63;&#x6f;&#109;</a> and we'll gladly help you with setting custom export options based on your needs.
  </p>
  
  <h4>
    Benutzerdefinierte Variablen
  </h4>
  
  <p>
    Crowdin supports all the placeholders typical for the supported file formats. They are all automatically highlighted in the Editor, so translators know that they shouldn’t be translated. Even if translator attempts to save translation with some modified or missing placeholder, enabled QA checks will notify translator about the mistake.
  </p>
  
  <p>
    As various file formats allow the creation of custom placeholders, we can also add a support of the custom ones you use in your project. To request the support of your custom placeholders – email Crowdin customer success team at <a href="&#109;&#x61;i&#108;&#x74;&#111;&#58;&#x73;&#117;&#x70;&#x70;&#111;&#x72;t&#64;&#x63;&#114;&#111;&#x77;&#100;&#x69;&#x6e;&#46;&#x63;&#x6f;&#109;">&#x73;&#117;&#x70;&#x70;&#111;&#x72;t&#64;&#x63;&#114;&#111;&#x77;&#100;&#x69;&#x6e;&#46;&#x63;&#x6f;&#109;</a>
