Once you’ve created a file-based project, the next step would be preparing source files for upload. Crowdin supports a wide range of file formats, including Android XML, iOS Strings, XML, JSON, etc. Additionally, you can add support for more formats by installing respective apps on the Crowdin Store.
Usually, this task is accomplished by developers. You can invite your colleague developer as a project manager to assist you with this step.
When you have your files prepared, you can add them to your Crowdin project for translation.
Crowdin offers a few options for adding content to a project:
You can also use Crowdin sample files to test the translation workflows before starting your project with the actual source files.
To upload files via the web interface, follow these steps:
Some file formats, such as XML, CSV, XLSX, and others, might require additional configuration.
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 see images in the HTML files when translating in the Editor.
After you add source content to Crowdin, you can upload existing translations.
