Integration with Azure Repos synchronizes source and translation files between your Azure Repos repository and translation project in Crowdin. All translated and approved files will be automatically pushed as a pull request to the l10n branch in the Azure Repos repository.
Click Set Up Integration to integrate via your Azure Repos account.
In the appeared dialog, select your repository and branches that should be translated. It’s recommended to switch Duplicate Strings to Show within a version branch, so identical strings will be hidden between branches. If your source files contain strings with apparent identifiers (keys), it’s better to use a strict version of this option. In other cases, feel free to use a regular one.

When translations are finished and your languages are ready to go live, Crowdin sends the pull request with translations to your version control system. For every branch that is under localization, Crowdin creates an additional service branch with translations. We don’t commit directly to the master branch so that you can verify translations first.
By default, l10n_ is added to the created service branch name. If necessary, you can easily change it.
By default, sources are not pushed to the repo with translations. Although, if you perform a source text review in your Crowdin project and would like to push the changes made to your source files on Crowdin back to your repo, click Edit, select Push Sources in the integration settings, and click Save.
There are cases when it’s necessary to disable translations from being pushed to the repo temporarily. In this situation, click Edit, clear Push Translations in the integration settings, and click Save. When ready to sync translations with the repo, select the Push Translations, and click Save.
The synchronization is processed every hour automatically. If necessary, you can change the update interval in the integration settings. To configure the synchronization schedule – click Edit, scroll down to the Sync Schedule, set the preferred interval, and click Save.
Not depending on the synchronization settings, the source files’ changes on the repo will still be synced with Crowdin every ten minutes.
When you set up the integration, you select existing repository branches to be added to the Crowdin project. To add future branches from Azure Repos to Crowdin automatically, create a pattern for the branch names in the integration settings.
For example, you add a pattern *feature in the Azure Repos integration settings. In this case, the future branches that contain this word at the end of the title will be added to the project.
Per aggiungere un modello per il ramo nomi, segui questi passi:
crowdin.yml is the default file name that is used for automatically synchronized branches. To change the default settings, click Edit, specify the preferred name in the Default configuration file name field in the integration settings, and click Save.
Per fare funzionare l’integrazione, devi specificare quale file risorsa dovrebbe essere tradotto e come Crowdin dovrebbe strutturare i file tradotti nella tua repository. If you see a red icon with an exclamatory mark next to the service branch name, it means that you didn’t select content for synchronization.
There are two ways to do that: configuring online or manually by creating a configuration file.
Questa procedura è uguale per tutte le integrazioni con il sistema di controllo versione (VCS). Controlla Integrazioni VCS: Configurare Online per sapere come selezionare contenuto per la sincronizzazione online.
crowdin.yml should be stored in the Azure Repos repository along with each separate branch that you want to translate, so Crowdin knows what files exactly should be sent for translations.
It should have the same structure as required for CLI, but your project’s credentials should not be stored in the file’s header for security reasons.

When working with a multiplatform product that has versions for different operating systems, you might want to connect multiple repositories that contain source files for each operating system. In this case, localization resources (e.g., TMs, Glossaries) and translations could be used more efficiently, reducing the time needed for project localization.
To add another repository, follow these steps:
Once the integration is set up, all the related information is stored in the same place – Settings > Integrations tab > Azure Repos section. The synchronization is processed every hour automatically. If you need to launch the synchronization instantly – click Sync Now.
By default, the translations stored on the repo are uploaded to Crowdin during the first synchronization only. To upload translations to Crowdin manually, click on the drop-down toggle on the Sync Now button, and click Upload Translations. The integration will upload existing translations to your Crowdin project.
