Importing the translation file

Suggest edit Updated on April 11, 2020

To complete the translation process, import the translation files that you received from the translator. After the translation files are imported, the original field values are replaced with their translations.

If you receive translation files from more than one translator, import each file separately.

  1. In the Import wizard, click Choose File to upload the translation package .zip file.

  2. Click Next.

    Result: When the import is complete, the following information is displayed:
    • Successfully imported
    • Imports skipped – The translation is the same as the translation currently in the application or the translation contains a blank value in the TextToTranslate.xml file.
    • Errors while importing
  3. Click Finish.

  4. Click Close.

  5. For translations that are included in the Translation.html files, create the rules in the localized ruleset and paste the translated text into the fields.

    These external translations are not included in the TextToTranslate.xml file, so you must add them manually.

  • Selecting the translation package and rulesets

    After the translation package has been translated, reopen the wizard so that you can import the translated values.

  • Localization wizard

    Use the Localization wizard to make an application available in additional languages. The wizard automates many of the steps necessary to create language-specific rulesets.
