Documentation on how to translate software with POEditor

Whenever you want to download to your computer the strings you've translated with the POEditor localization management platform, you can do this using the Export feature. You can choose to export the localized file in any of the formats the POEditor localization platform supports, and you can also change the name of the localization file. Here's how:

  1. In the translation page of the language you want to download, click on Export in the side menu, and select the format in which you want to export the localized file.
  2. Click on Advanced Options. Here, you can filter what strings you want to export in the file, and also change the Filename.

Export filters (Language page) - POEditor translation platform

Note: When you change on export the format of the localization file you initially imported, the last format you chose to export in becomes the default option. This rule also applies when you change the name of the localization file - the last filename that you chose for export will remain default.
