The automated import and export feature allows you to set up an automatic content exchange process between your Lokalise project and a chosen third-party app. This way you don't need to manually trigger the import or export operation every time: it will be run automatically for you.
Currently this feature is available for the following apps:
To get started, proceed to Lokalise, open your translation project, click Apps and find the app that you'd like to enable this feature for. Then in the top menu click on a cog icon (Automated settings):
Automated import can be turned on or off under the Import tab:
Import languages — choose one or more the languages you would like to include in the automated import process.
Overwrite updated translations — update already existing keys that were linked to items on the third-service with new values.
Skip key creation for empty translations — when checked, Lokalise will not create a translation key for translation items that are empty on the chosen third-party service.
Import references — import all references from the third-party service.
Tags — choose tags that you would like to assign to the imported items.
Frequency — choose how often the import process should be performed.
Content type — choose a saved filter with items that you would like to import.
Automated export can be turned on or off under the Export tab:
Export languages — choose one or more the languages you would like to include in the automated export process.
Don't export empty translations — ignore empty translation items and do not export them from the third-party service.
Export references — export all references to the third-party service.
Frequency — choose how often the export process should be performed.
Content type — choose a saved filter with items that you would like to export.
Translation filter — choose which translation keys should be exported from Lokalise. You can choose to export only reviewed and/or only verified keys.
