Управление файлами

You can manage all the project’s files via Content > Files. Here you can manually upload files for localization using various supported formats. When the files are uploaded, you’ll be able to take a glance at how many Strings your files include and how many Revisions (changes) were done to each of them.

If you want to configure an automatic files’ synchronization with your project, use the Applications tab.

Изменение приоритета файлов

You can set a specific priority for each file by clicking an arrow icon next to the needed file. Then translators will be able to see files sorted according to their priority on the Language page and in the Editor.

Files might have the following priorities:

  • Low Priority– low
  • Normal Priority– normal
  • High Priority– high

File Settings

To access the configurations of specific files, right-click on the necessary file or click next to it and then select Settings.

Title as It Appears to Translators

Set more descriptive titles for the files to provide additional details for translators.

Note: The file title is only shown in the Crowdin UI and doesn't rename the actual file.

File Export

Define a file name or full path in the resulting archive, use the available placeholders to indicate the structure of exported content.

For example, you want the source file Overview.csv with Ukrainian translation to be named Overview.ukrainian.csv before integrating it with the application. In this case, you’d need to set the Resulting file after translations export to the following: Overview.%language%.csv.

During the file export, Crowdin language codes are added by default. Для использования настраиваемых языков в рамках всего проекта – настройте Отображение языков.

File Target Languages

By default, the source files are available for translation into all target languages of the project. Clear the checkboxes in the File target languages list next to the languages your file shouldn’t be translated into, and click Save.

Переименование файлов

To change the file’s name, right-click on the necessary file or click next to it and select Rename.

Проверка прогресса

You can check the translation and approval progress for a branch, folder, or file you need. Right-click on the needed branch, folder or file, and select the Progress. To see how many words are translated and approved for each language, hover over the progress bar. To open the selected file in the Editor, click on the needed language. To download translations for the chosen file, select the required languages, and click Build & Download.

Обновление исходных файлов

In case you have added some new strings to one of the source files, you’d want to update it to make newly added strings visible to translators. Click Update next to the necessary file and select the new file on your machine.

If some of the source strings were modified, the system shows a dialog with a list of edited strings. You’ll be able to choose which existing translations you want to keep without changes (Current Strings column) and whether you want to keep or remove approvals. The translations for other changed strings will be removed.

Восстановление предыдущих версий

После каждого обновления исходного файла создается новая ревизия файла. In the appeared dialog, select the revision you want to restore your file to and click Restore next to it. To restore your file to the previous revision, click the digit on the needed file in the Revision column.

Branches and Folders

You can create folders and branches in Content > Files with New Folder and New Branch buttons.

Folders represent your content structure, while branches help to manage different versions of the content.

Usually, branches in Crowdin are created automatically if you use GitHub, Bitbucket, or other VCS integration. Still, if you need to create branches manually, make sure to upload the master branch first, as all the others will be considered the feature branches. Duplicates might be managed in the Settings tab by choosing the corresponding option for Duplicate Strings.

Управление строками

You can view all the project’s strings and manage strings settings via Content > Strings.

Changing Strings Visibility

If some strings contain data that is not supposed to be translated (e.g. placeholders, other technical entities), you can hide them from translators. To do this:

  1. Open your project and go to Content > Strings.
  2. Select the necessary strings.
  3. Нажмите на кнопке Скрыть.

Filtering Strings

By default, all source strings of the project are displayed in Content > Strings. If necessary, you can filter out strings using the available filter options (With Unresolved Issues, Without Unresolved Issues, With Comments, Without Comments, With Screenshots, Without Screenshots, Hidden and Visible) and project labels.

String Editing

There is a possibility to add context to the string and set the max. length of the translation. Если переводчик превысит лимит символов, система сообщит что перевод должен быть короче.

Some file formats allow editing (adding, deleting, and modifying) of the source texts directly in Crowdin so you can do the necessary corrections without updating the source file via Content > Files. Check the full list below:

  • CSV
  • RESX
  • JSON
  • Android XML
  • iOS strings

To edit some particular word or phrase that appears in multiple source strings, you can use the Find & Replace feature in Content > Strings.


Use labels in your project for an easy way to add context to the strings or organize them by certain topics. Labels are also useful while creating translation and proofreading tasks or searching for specific strings in the Editor with the help of Advanced Filter.

Managing Project Labels

To create, edit, or remove project labels, follow these steps:

  1. Open your project and go to Content > Strings.
  2. Click the drop-down toggle next to Labels, and select Manage Project Labels.
  3. In the appeared dialog, add new labels, edit or remove existing ones.

Adding Labels to Strings

There are a few possible ways you can add labels to the strings.

  • Add labels to one string at a time via the Edit String dialog
    • Click Edit on the string in the list
    • Select needed labels in the Labels field
    • Нажмите по кнопке Сохранить

  • Add labels to multiple strings via the Manage Strings Labels dialog
    • Select a few strings you want to add the same labels to
    • Click Labels
    • Select needed labels in the Labels to be added field
    • Нажмите по кнопке Сохранить

Change Scheme for XML, CSV, and XLSX Files

You might want to update XML, CSV, or XLSX files and change the currently set configuration. The scheme update might be needed when you add a new target language to your Crowdin project.

To change the scheme for your source file, follow these steps:

  1. Right-click on the needed files and select Change scheme.
  2. Select the new file on your machine.
  3. Set the new configuration/template for the file correspondingly.
Note: You can't edit the existing configuration template. Instead, you can remove it or create a new one.
