Uploading Existing Translations

If you have some existing translations, you can migrate them to your project in Crowdin Enterprise. Import files with translations from the Project home or open the specific file in the Editor and upload translations from there. The best practice would be to upload translated files with the key-value structure.

Key-value Formats

You can easily upload translations for the source files with a key-value structure. This includes the following file formats: Android XML, iOS Strings, StringDict, JSON, Chrome JSON, YAML, INI, RESX, PO, TS, CSV, XLSX, PHP, XLIFF, RC, VDF.

Text and HTML-based Formats

For the files that do not have a defined structure, translation upload is handled by an experimental machine learning technology. This includes the following file formats: HTML, TXT, Markdown, Generic XML, DOCX, HAML, IDML, DITA, Wiki, and FLSNP. To achieve the best results, we recommend uploading translation files with the same or as close as possible file structure as in source files.

Currently, this feature is available for the following languages (not depending on the language pair combination): Arabic, Chinese Simplified, Chinese Traditional, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Dutch, Polish, Portuguese, Portuguese, Portuguese Brazilian, Spanish, Thai, Turkish, and Russian.
