Documentation on how to translate software with POEditor

The uniqueness of a term in a POEditor project is given by the term - context pair. So, if you want to add a term multiple times to localization project, simply add it with a different Context value.

Out of the formats supported by our translation management platform, the ones that support Context are .po/.pot, .csv, .json, .xls/.xlsx, iOS .xliff.

You can edit a term's Context value by going to the project page and accessing View or Add Terms in the side menu.

Context (View or Add Terms) - POEditor localization tool

We do not recommend adding comments in Context. POEditor has a dedicated comment system designed for communicating term-related things such as tone of voice or other translation aspects.
