Before getting started, be sure to check which file format you need your translations to be in. See the File Formats section for the complete list of supported formats.

In order to run the Transifex Client from Jenkins, you will need to setup the Execute shell task.

Or alternatively use a plugin like the Managed script plugin.

The source file will be the foundation for setting up the Transifex Client, which lets you send and receive files over Transifex's REST API. In order to set up your Transifex Client configuration, you first need a project in Transifex and the Transifex Client installed.

After finishing all the steps above, follow the set of commands below to set up your repository configuration in a file called .tx/config. In this example, we named our project in Transifex mytxproject.

$ git clone
$ cd myapp
$ tx init
$ tx set --auto-local -r mytxproject.defaultpo 'locale/<lang>/LC_MESSAGES/default.po' \
--source-lang en --type PO --source-file locale/en/LC_MESSAGES/default.po

You should commit the .tx/config file to your repository so the next time you want to push new source content, you can simply use the following commands

$ cd myapp
$ ./ makemessages -l en
$ tx push -s

The tx commands should always be executed from the directory in your repository where the .tx/ folder is located.

To download translations once their are complete in Transifex, use:

$ cd myapp
$ tx pull -t -a
