Localyzer Express is a GitHub application which allows for a near immediate translation of standard application resource files.

Resource files are used by internationalized applications to display user facing strings (such as user interface labels) in different locales (languages, country, variant). As an example, messages.properties, an English resource file, can be translated in French and Japanese, respectively messages_fr.properties and messages_ja.properties.

To use Localyzer Express:

  • Install the Localyzer Express GitHub application for an organization and choose the respositories (or all) that you would like translated
  • Configure each repository, choosing source and target locales, resource type, file naming conventions, repository branches to include and/or exclude, and resource directories to include and/or exclude.

Localyzer Express will then automatically machine translate target resource files as modifications to source resource files are committed to the repository.

Localyzer Express is a GitHub specific and streamlined version of the more fully fledged Localyzer.

Note: LocalyzerQA allows for post editing in a QA fashion translation from Localyzer Express

The following resource file types are supported by Localyzer Express, provided they follow the standards:

  • properties files
