Add your first project
After verifying your email, go ahead and log in with the credentials you provided during signup.
The screen you will land on is your dashboard where you can add new projects, or access the projects you’ve been invited to.
To add a new project, provide the following information:

Once you’ve created your project, it’s time to add terms that need to be translated.
Within Translized, this can be done in three different ways:
- Manually Add Terms
- Import Terms from a file
- Translized’s CLI
Manually Add Terms
Manually add terms by going to "Terms" tab inside your project, a clicking "Add Term" button.
Import Terms from a file
To import terms manually use the Import tab, and easily drag or drop the file to the designated field.
Additionally, you can import terms one by one on the Term page.
Learn more about importing terms on Import Localization Terms.
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 terms, it’s time to add languages.
From our pre-populated list of languages, choose the one you want to translate your terms 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.
Everything is set up - and you’re ready to start translating your terms. 🎉
Translized offers 3 different ways of translating your terms:
- 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 is mostly used if you’re translating the terms yourself, or are working with a translator.
There are 2 different ways to manually translate your terms: per language, and per term.
To translate per language, select the language you want, and you can easily start translating the terms one by one, with the help of additional tools provided by Translized.
To translate per term, go to the Terms page, select the term you want to translate, and do so with the help of Quick Translate, or on the term tab.
This option allows you to add translations for multiple languages at once.
With the help of machine translation, easily translate your terms into multiple languages. By default, you have 1000 machine translation characters, but can always purchase more through the app.
Translized offers in-app translation orders - meaning you can order translations from a native speaker, or a professional translator in more than 70 languages.
Invite team members
There are 3 different roles available within Translized:
Each role has a different set of permissions within your project.
