Once you’ve created a project, you can add content for translation. You need to extract the files from the programming product source code. Crowdin supports a wide range of file formats.
If you are not a person who is responsible for preparing source files, you can invite a developer as a project manager to get help.
You can also use Crowdin sample files to test the translation workflows before starting your project.
Along with the web interface, you can use API, console client (CLI) or other integrations to automate file sync with Crowdin.
To upload files:
- Go to the Project Settings, Files tab
- Drag and drop files from your machine, or click Upload Files. You can upload ZIP archives if you want a bunch of folders and files to be added.
XML, CSV, and XLSX Files
Some file formats, such as XML, CSV, and XLSX, might require additional configuration.
Note: The size of an XLSX file is limited up to 330 000 cells(for example, you can upload a file with 5 columns and 66,000 rows).
HTML Files with Relative URLs
To display images and styles in the HTML file used outside of the website, where it belongs add the <base> tag to specify the base URL/target for all relative URLs in a document.
Once you add the
<base> tag, translators will be able to see images in the HTML files when making translations in the Editor.
Once you add source content to Crowdin, you’ll be able to upload translations.
