Pseudo translations

We are deprecating the API versions namely API v2 and v2.5, to make way for the more usable and maintainable API v3.

As of Nov 30, 2022, API versions, 2 and 2.5 will no longer be operational and relevant requests will begin to fail.

The following API endpoint generates pseudolocalization files. You can find more information on the topic here.

Downloading pseudolocalization files

URL: /project/<project_slug>/resource/<resource_slug>/pseudo/?pseudo_type=MIXED


Returns a JSON dictionary containing the content of the pseudolocalization file and the mimetype of the corresponding source file.


$ curl -i -L --user api:<token> -X GET

If the GET parameter file is also specified, then the pseudotranslations are downloaded in the corresponding file format.

For example:

$ curl -i -L --user api:<token> -X GET
