Translating Offline

If you prefer to translate offline using a desktop tool, you can download the content from Transifex, then import the finished translations back into the project.

Getting the file for translation

To get a file for translation:

  • From the project navigation, select the project that has the file you want to translate.

  • Click Resources.

  • In the list of resources, select the one you'd like to work on.

  • Click on the language you want to work on.

  • In the popup, click either Download file to translate or Download for translation as XLIFF. A file will be saved to your computer.resource-details-popup.png#asset:167

If you chose the "Download file to translate" option, the file you get will be in the same file format as the source file in the project.


XLIFF support is only available on the Growth plan and up.

When you're done translating the file, you can import the translations to Transifex.

Getting the Translation Memory

In addition downloading a file for translation, you can also get the TMX file and import it to your tool.
