API v2 Documentation

Connect your software to the POEditor localization platform using this simple REST API

Overview

To perform an action using the POEditor API, send a request to the API endpoint and a response will then be sent back to you.

The POEditor API consists of a set of callable methods.

The request should be POST.

Some endpoints will require you to send the parameter values as JSON.
An example of a properly formatted JSON, for a request to export to Android Strings with unquoted strings using the «options» parameter:

[{"unquoted": 1}]

An example of a request containing this JSON:

curl -X POST https://api.poeditor.com/v2/projects/export \
     -d api_token="a9824103d8729b923fbe1d268ec69ef9" \
     -d id="7717" \
     -d language="fr" \
     -d type="android_strings" \
     -d options="[{\"unquoted\":1}]"

The response you'll get will be a JSON encoded object.
If the response is not successful, the JSON object will contain an error code and a message. You can find the full list of POEditor API errors here.

Authentication

All requests to the POEditor API must contain the parameter api_token. You can get your POEditor API key from your POEditor account. You'll find it in Account > API Access.

Please take care of your token.

If you think the key has been compromised, you can reset it from Settings > API Access by clicking the Regenerate API Token button, or you can delete the API Access using the Remove API Token button.

OpenAPI

POEditor's API has an OpenAPI specification. You can find the document on SwaggerHub or download POEditor's Swagger file, which can "translate" our API for your specific needs. Request examples included for the following: C sharp, Go, Java, jaxrs-cxf-client, kotlin-client, PHP, Python, Scala, Swift3, Swift4, Swift5, typescript-angular, typescript-fetch.
