LRM Process interacts with the LRM engine (lrm-cli.jar) and L10n Vendors. It is also responsible for sending out notification emails. Each command has an abbreviation. The long version of each command starts with two dashes, --. The short version of each command starts with one dash, -.


This reference gives the short and the long version of each Resource Manager command and a usage example.

Kit Preparation

With the --dry-run option running successfully, you're ready to prepare a Kit for translation. You do this by running the --prep-kit command with only the LRM project name.

lrm --prep-kit --project-name <project name>

By default, the Kit is created under your 'prep_kit' folder,. Each time you prepare a Kit for your LRM project, LRM will create a folder named PREP_KIT_<version>,(<HOME>/Lingoport_Data/LRM/<group-name>/prep_kit/MyProject), with all the latest settings associated with your LRM Project where <version> is the kit version number. For example, if you ran --prep-kit on your LRM Project named MyProject, the first Kit would be created in the folder (<HOME>/Lingoport_Data/LRM/<group-name>/prep_kit/MyProject/PREP_KIT_1.

The PREP_KIT_<version> contains:

  • A folder for each locale with a copy of each base resource file that has changed since the last time the kit was prepped. If the prep.kit.changes.only option is set in the file then the resource files will contain only the key/value pairs that have changed since the last time the kit was prepped;
  • A BaseFileSearch<target locale>.xml file for each locale describing the base files for the kit;
  • If LRM detected only warnings in your base resource files, then there will also be a BaseFileSearchWarnings<default locale>.xml file describing the warnings.
  • However, if there are errors in the base resource files (rather than just warnings), the PREP_KIT_<version> folder will contain a BaseFileSearchErrors<default locale>.xml file and the kit will not be created. You must correct all errors prior to preparing a kit.

The PREP_KIT_<version> folder is what you send out for translation. The localization vendor will translate the resource files in each of the target locale folders.

Important Note: It is required that the resource files in the target locale folders are translated and returned, maintaining all the other text in the resource files. This is because LRM places a comment tag at the top of each resource file that indicates the LRM Project, Kit version and target locale, which LRM needs during the Kit Import process. An example LRM tag is: MyProjectName_1_5

Override Prep Kit

The override option of the prep kit command will prep a kit regardless of whether there are changes to the base resource files. The prep kit can be filtered by base resource files (--resource-file options) as well as locales (--locale option). If there are no additional options then all base resource file will be sent out for translation.


  • Create a prep kit for all base resource files
   java -jar lrm-cli.jar -pk --override -pn <project> -gn <group>
  • Create a prep kit for specific locales
   java -jar lrm-cli.jar -pk --override -pn <project> -gn <group> --locale fr,de,es_mx
  • Create a prep kit for specific resource files
   java -jar lrm-cli.jar -pk -or -pn <project> -gn <group> --resource-file /var/lib/jenkins/myproject/resources/,/var/lib/jenkins/myproject/resources/
  • Create a prep kit for a specific locale file
   java -jar lrm-cli.jar -pk -or -pn <project> -gn <group> -lc fr -rf /var/lib/jenkins/myproject/resources/
