Available Commands Overview

LingoBot allows developers and i18n/l10n managers to make use of Lingoport's product suite without ever having to leave their collaboration environment. With a variety of easy-to-understand commands, users can scan their codebase for potential i18n and l10n issues, gain quick access to the Lingoport dashboard, as well as send resource files for translation and retrieve translation status reports. Here you will find a summary list of the commands which LingoBot will recognize as well as a brief description of each command. Further down you will find in-depth breakdowns of the commands, their use cases, as well as examples of each command in use. If you have any questions that this document doesn't answer, be sure to check out the FAQ page for additional information.
