Uploading Content for Translation

Once you've created a project, you can add content for translation. How you do this will depend on whether you have a file-based project or Live project.

File-based projects

Here, we'll walk you through how to use Transifex's web interface to upload your source files for translation. You can also use the API or command-line client to add files to your project.

If a project doesn't have any resources yet

  • From the project navigation in the Dashboard, select the project you want to upload a file to.

  • Click the Upload your file button in the project overview.

  • To upload your file, drag and drop one or more files from your computer, or hit the Select Resources button.

  • Once you've selected your file(s), you'll have the option of editing the resource name and file format.

A note about files

The source file you upload should only have source strings in it, not translations. After adding your source content to Transifex, you'll be able to upload existing translations.

Live projects

If you have a Live project, please see our Live documentation for how to add a website URL for translation.
