This feature is available from the Essential plan and above.

Sometimes translators prefer to translate offline using familiar CAT tools. Instead of granting translators download/upload rights, use the Offline translation project settings (project settings > General > Offline translation).

Once enabled, any user will see the offline translation widget in the Editor while in bilingual editing mode.

Users are able to download an XLIFF of the current target language, translate it offline and upload the translated XLIFF file.

Uploading the file will replace all existing translations with those in the file being uploaded.

Filename and platform attributes relating to keys will not be changed. Downloaded XLIFF files will include links to screenshots, comments and translation statuses.

Offline translation in Tasks

If a project has Offline translations enabled in the settings, every task you create will include Download XLIFF and Upload XLIFF buttons. The translations you download will include all languages in a single ZIP file.

Offline Translation With Branching

Please note that if you have project branching feature enabled, there are certain restrictions to XLIFF files uploading process. Specifically, if you have downloaded the offline translation file from branch_a, this file can only be uploaded to branch_a but not to any other branches. Similarly, a file downloaded from branch_b can be uploaded only to branch_b, but not to branch_a.
