Documentation on how to translate software with POEditor

Screenshots are very useful for translators collaborating on a software localization project. With the POEditor localization platform, you can share images with your translators using the Comments System. Here are the steps that you need to follow:

  1. Upload the screenshots somewhere, where it is most convenient for you (on your site or on a file hosting website, for example).
  2. Copy/paste each link in the comment section of the corresponding term.

When your translators will press the comments buttons, they will get a preview of the image that was linked there, which can be enlarged by clicking on it.

Screenshot in comments (Language page) - POEditor Localization Platform

Note: Once you've added the screenshots to your software localization project, you don't need to repeat the process in the case of a second import. Just make sure that, when you export, the links to the screenshots are in the first comment, and they will be kept in the downloaded localization file.
