Import Localization Terms

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
  • Translized’s CLI

Import terms manually (in bulk)

To import a file manually, visit the Import tab on the left hand side, and drag or drop your file into the designated space.


File formats you can import: Microsof Excel (.xlsx), CSV (.csv), Android (.xml), iOS (.strings), Java (.properties), JSON (.json), Angular (.xlf), YAML (.yml) .NET (.resx), ARB (.arb), PHP (.php), PO (.po).

Next, choose the language in which the terms have been translated.

Configure import with the following options:

  • Return obsolete terms: Obsolete terms are those found in the project, but not in the imported file. You have the option to return all obsolete terms when importing a file - so you can keep, or delete them from your project.
  • Override Import Automations rules: Disable previously set automation rules.
  • Override existing translations: Override existing term translations with the imported ones.

Add a single term manually

Additionally, you can manually import a single term on the Terms page.

  • Term: Term key.
  • Context: Help your team members by providing additional context on where the term is being used.
  • Term tag: Tag your newly imported term.

Once imported, you’ll notice that your Terms page has been populated with the newly added terms.
