Documentation on how to translate software with POEditor

Localize iOS app strings easily with POEditor following these simple steps:

1. Create translation project

Login to your account, create a new translation project and add a language to it.

2. Import iOS .strings file

Use the Options Menu in the project page to import your strings file, with translations in the language you created (use the Also import translations in... option to upload the translations).

Import terms (Project page) - POEditor localization management platform

This language will automatically be set as your project's Default Reference Language after you import the translations. You can change the DRL in Project Settings.

3. Start localization

Add your desired languages for translation, invite your contributors to join and start localizing your app. There are also other translation options you can choose from.

When you are done with the localization, you can download your localized Apple Strings files to your computer using the Export function in any Language page.

Note: If you want to automate the import/export steps of the localization process, consider using the POEditor API or one of the integrations with code hosting platforms.
