To translate Angular .xlf files with POEditor, you need to first make a basic setup for your localization project. Steps below.
1. Create translation project
Log in to your POEditor account, create a new translation project and add a language to it (your software's default language).
2. Import Angular XLIFF file (.xlf)
In the project page, use the Import functionality to upload the strings from your Angular XLIFF file, with translations in the language you created, checking to get translations from
<source> instead of
After you import the source language, we strongly recommend you set it as your project's Default Reference Language.
If you have translations in the
<target> tag also and want to add them to the project, create a new language and import them there.
3. Start localization
Add your desired target languages for translation, invite your contributors to join and start localizing your app.
Once you are done with the localization of your Angular app, you can download your target languages in the Angular XLIFF file format using the Export functionality.
Keep in mind that to export in the Angular .xlf format it is required to have a Default Reference Language set.
