Localization with Crowdin [beta]¶
The integration of Crowdin is currently in beta state. Once it is stabilized, it will be also available in installations using TYPO3 9 LTS.
What is Crowdin¶
Crowdin is a localization management platform and offers the core features essential for delivering great translation:
- Single source: Translate text once that is used in different versions and parts of the software.
- Machine translation: Let machines do the first pass and then human-translators can edit the suggestions.
- Glossary: we can use our own TYPO3 glossary to make sure specific words are properly translated (e.g. Template in german, TypoScript or SEO)
- Translation memory: we can reuse existing translations, no matter if done for the TYPO3 Core or an extension.
- Crowdin is a cloud-based content localization solution which offers a free plan for open source projects.
Crowdin is completely free of charge for open-source projects.
A TYPO3 initiative has been created which takes care of integrating Crowdin into TYPO3. The initiative’s scope is to fulfill all features which have been available with Pootle and its integration.
