Целевые наборы файлов (На основе файлов)

Target file bundles or simply Bundles is the feature that allows you to export sets of strings or files in the formats you select, regardless of the original file format. By default, you can choose from the following three formats: XLIFF, Android XML, and iOS Strings. You can add more target file formats by installing respective applications from the Crowdin Marketplace.

You can work with bundles in several ways:

  • Manage bundles manually via the project’s Translations tab.
  • Connect a VCS integration in Target file bundles mode.
  • Manage bundles using OTA Content Delivery.
  • Manage bundles using Crowdin CLI and API.

When you work with bundles, the primary location for managing (creating, editing, and deleting) them is the project’s Translations tab (for File-based projects). Once you’ve created a bundle, you can use it with all the aforementioned tools.

Use Cases

The most common use cases are the following:

  • You can upload a single source file (e.g., Android XML) to your project, translate it, and then, using bundles, export translations for multiple platforms (e.g., Android XML for the Android app, iOS strings for the iOS app, JSON for the web app, etc.).
  • You can have a single spreadsheet (e.g., XLSX or CSV) where you store source strings for all platforms your app is developed for, and each string is labeled with a respective label. Upload this file to your project, translate it, and then create separate bundles for multiple platforms using a combination of source file paths and string labels.
  • Вы можете локализовать свое мобильное приложение без исходных файлов, объединив плагины Crowdin design tool (Figma, Sketch, Adobe XD) для отправки строк непосредственно в корпоративный проект Crowdin и экспорта переводов в предпочтительные форматы с помощью пакетов.
  • Вы можете экспортировать определенные наборы строк для автономного перевода в формате XLIFF, а затем загрузить готовые переводы обратно в Crowdin Enterprise.
