Azure Repos 集成(基于文件)

The Azure Repos integration allows you to synchronize files between your Azure Repos repository and Crowdin project.

Note: You will need to install the Azure Repos integration in your Crowdin account before you can set it up and use it.

In file-based projects, there are two possible Azure Repos integration modes you can choose from:

  • Source and translation files mode – synchronize source and translation files between your Azure Repos repository and Crowdin project.
  • Target file bundles mode – generate and push translation files to your Azure Repos repository from the Crowdin project in the selected format. 在此模式下,集成会推送翻译文件,但不会同步存储库中的源。 In cases when you perform a source text review in your Crowdin project and want to get updated source texts to your repo, you can add a source language as a target language, which will be pushed to your repo along with translations.

All translated and approved files will be automatically pushed as a merge request to the l10n branch in the Azure Repos repository in either of the above modes.

将 Azure Repos 链接至 Crowdin

  1. 打开您的项目并转到集成选项卡。
  2. 在“集成”列表中单击 Azure Repos
  3. Click Set Up Integration and select Source and translation files mode or Target file bundles mode from the drop-down list to integrate via your Azure Repos account. Azure Repos Integration Connecting Azure Repos
  4. Then authorize the connection with Crowdin on the Azure Repos side: Azure Repos Integration Authorization

In case the repository you need is private, and you have limited or no access to it, please ask the repository owner to provide you with an access token. 然后,点击 使用个人访问令牌 并将令牌填入 令牌 输入框中,然后点击 Set Up Integration

Note: When setting up an integration with an access token, ensure that you have the Project Administrator level permission to the necessary repo.

选择仓库

In the appeared dialog, select your repository and branches that should be translated. It’s recommended to switch Duplicate Strings to Show within a version branch, so identical strings will be hidden between branches. If your source files contain strings with apparent identifiers (keys), it’s better to use a strict version of this option. In other cases, feel free to use a regular one.

Azure Repos Integration Unconfigured

When working with Azure Repos integration in the Target File Bundles Mode, the integration will send the completed translations from your Crowdin project without pulling sources from your repo. 因此,在选择应翻译的存储库和分支时,您可以指定集成应将生成的带有翻译的包放在何处。

当您使用私有集成(例如,与自托管 VCS 集成)时,您需要将专用的 Crowdin IP 地址添加到白名单中,以确保其正常运行并保持安全。

服务分支

When translations are finished and your languages are ready to go live, Crowdin sends the pull request with translations to your version control system. For every branch that is under localization, Crowdin creates an additional service branch with translations. We don’t commit directly to the master branch so that you can verify translations first.

By default, l10n_ is added to the created service branch name. If necessary, you can easily change it.

同步配置

要从存储库导入现有翻译,请选择以下选项之一:

  • 分支连接后一次性导入翻译
  • 始终从存储库导入新翻译

默认情况下,选择第一个选项仅导入翻译一次。 或者,如果您不想从存储库导入翻译,则可以清除这两个选项。

Azure Repos Translation Import Options

By default, sources are not pushed to the repo with translations. Although, if you perform a source text review in your Crowdin project and would like to push the changes made to your source files on Crowdin back to your repo, click Edit, select Push Sources in the integration settings, and click Save.

There are cases when it’s necessary to disable translations from being pushed to the repo temporarily. In this situation, click Edit, clear Sync Schedule in the integration settings, and click Save. When ready to sync translations with the repo, select the Sync Schedule, and click Save.

The synchronization is processed every hour automatically. If necessary, you can change the update interval in the integration settings. To configure the synchronization schedule – click Edit, scroll down to the Sync Schedule, set the preferred interval, and click Save.

Not depending on the synchronization settings, the source files’ changes on the repo will still be synced with Crowdin continuously.

Azure Repos Sync Settings

自动同步分支

When you set up the integration, you select existing repository branches to be added to the Crowdin project. To add future branches from Azure Repos to Crowdin automatically, create a pattern for the branch names in the integration settings.

For example, you add a pattern *feature in the Azure Repos integration settings. In this case, the future branches that contain this word at the end of the title will be added to the project.

To add a pattern for branch names, follow these steps:

  1. Click Edit in the Azure Repos integration section.
  2. In the appeared dialog, scroll down to the Branches to Sync Automatically.
  3. In the Branches to Sync Automatically field, use wildcard selectors such as ‘*’, ‘?’, ‘[set]’, ‘' and others to identify the necessary branches.
  4. 点击 保存Branches to Sync Automatically

默认配置文件名称

crowdin.yml is the default file name that is used for automatically synchronized branches. To change the default settings, click Edit, specify the preferred name in the Default configuration file name field in the integration settings, and click Save.

默认配置文件名称

If you don’t specify your custom configuration file name for automatically synchronized branches, and the integration doesn’t find a configuration file with the default name crowdin.yml in the root of the branch, these branches will be marked in the integration settings with a red icon with an exclamation mark saying “Not Ready. Check the configuration”.

选择要同步的内容

To make integration work, you need to specify which source files should be translated and how Crowdin should structure translated files in your repository. If you see a red icon with an exclamation mark next to the service branch name, it means that you haven’t selected any content for synchronization.

There are two ways you can specify content for synchronization:

  • Configuring online
  • Configuring manually by creating a configuration file

在线配置

This procedure is the same for all integrations with version control systems (VCS). Check VCS Integrations: Configuring Online to get to know how to select content for synchronization online.

创建配置文件

The configuration file crowdin.yml should be stored in the Azure Repos repository along with each separate branch that you want to translate, so Crowdin knows what files exactly should be sent for translations.

It should have the same structure as required for CLI, but your project’s credentials should not be stored in the file’s header for security reasons.

Working with Multiple Repositories within One Project

If you’re working with a multi-platform product that has versions for different operating systems, you may want to connect multiple repositories that contain source files for each operating system. In this case, localization resources (e.g., TMs, Glossaries) and translations could be used more efficiently, reducing the time needed for project localization.

To add another repository, follow these steps:

  1. 打开您的项目并转到集成选项卡。
  2. 在“集成”列表中单击 Azure Repos
  3. Click Add Repository.
  4. Configure the integration with the new repository according to your needs and preferences.

检查同步状态

Once the integration is set up, all related information is stored in the Integrations tab > Azure Repos section.

After the integration is connected, the settings can be updated only by the project member who configured it. All project managers except the person who configured the integration will see the Edit button disabled with the following message when hovering over it: Integration was configured by {Full Name} ({username}).

By default, synchronization is processed every hour automatically. If you need to launch the synchronization immediately – click Sync Now.

Alternatively, if you need to sync only one branch separately, click on the needed branch and select Sync branch.

从仓库中上传译文

By default, the translations stored on the repo are uploaded to Crowdin during the first synchronization only. To upload translations to Crowdin manually, click on the drop-down toggle on the Sync Now button, and click Upload Translations. The integration will upload existing translations to your Crowdin project.

疑问解答

Q: I have an application build configured to be triggered by every commit. Since Crowdin commits each translation file in a separate commit, how can I avoid unnecessary application builds triggered by commits from Crowdin? A: Since VCS integrations in Crowdin use API to commit files but not Git, each file is committed separately.

Here are a few recommendations that might help solve similar situations:
