How to Download and Edit a Translation File

For making a localized version of a User Portal, you need to create and upload a translation file. It includes all localizable resources like labels and text in a single file for quick and easy localization.

Before, when you needed to import a language file, you had to use CSV format. Now you can import and export XLSX (Excel) files as well. 

A new localized CSV file can be created by editing the downloaded CSV file with any CSV editor that supports Unicode, for example, Notepad, OpenOffice or Microsoft Excel. To edit an XLSX file, please use MS Excel.

More information about the CSV file format is available at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comma-separated_values

Edit Localization

To edit a localization:

  1. Mouse over the title and click the Edit icon on the right.
