Uploading Files for Localization

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 variety 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. Upload the sample Crowdin files to check the translation workflows before running an actual project.

Beside using web interface, you can apply API, console client (CLI) or other integrations to automate syncing of your content with Crowdin.

To upload files:

  1. Go to the Project Settings, Files tab
  2. 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.

Some file formats, such as XML, CSV, and XLSX, might require additional configuration.

After adding your source content to Crowdin, you’ll be able to upload existing translations.
