Add Keys

Once you’ve created your project, it’s time to add keys that need to be translated.

Within Translized, this can be done in three different ways:

  • Manually Add Keys
  • Import Keys from a file
  • Translized’s CLI

Manually Add Keys

Manually add keys by going to "Keys" tab inside your project, a clicking "Add Key" button.

Import Keys from a file

To import keys manually use the Import tab, and easily drag or drop the file to the designated field.


Additionally, you can import keys one by one on the Key page.


Learn more about importing keys on Import Localization Keys.

Import files using Translized’s CLI

Use our CLI and update localization with a single line from your terminal. Additionally, integrate CLI in your build process, and make sure you have the latest translations in every build.

Add new languages

After you’ve successfully added your keys, it’s time to add languages.


From our pre-populated list of languages, choose the one you want to translate your keys to.

Change the primary language

If you want to change the primary language of your project, you can do so on the Settings page.


Once you add additional languages to your project, you can easily change the primary language by selecting the one you want from the dropdown menu.

Translate keys

Everything is set up - and you’re ready to start translating your keys. 🎉

Translized offers 3 different ways of translating your keys:

  • Manual Translation
  • Machine Translation
  • Human Translation

Regardless of the method you choose to use, you’ll first need to add a language, in addition to the primary language


Manual Translation

Manual translation is mostly used if you’re translating the keys yourself, or are working with a translator.

There are 2 different ways to manually translate your keys: per language, and per key.

To translate per language, select the language you want, and you can easily start translating the keys one by one, with the help of additional tools provided by Translized.


To translate per key, go to the Keys page, select the key you want to translate, and do so with the help of Quick Translate, or on the key tab.

This option allows you to add translations for multiple languages at once.

Machine Translation

With the help of machine translation, easily translate your keys into multiple languages. By default, you have 1000 machine translation characters, but can always purchase more through the app.

Export translations

Once you’re all done - it’s time to export your translations! 🚀

And lastly, you can choose some of the advanced options offered by Translized, to additionally configure your export file.

  • Custom file name: <locale_code> will be replaced with the language code of the selected language and <file_type> will be replaced with the file type of the selected file.
