Documentation on how to translate software with POEditor

Follow the steps below to quickly set up your Android app localization project with POEditor:

1. Create localization project

Log in to your account, create a new translation project and add a language to it (the software's default language).

2. Import Android XML file

In the Project page, click on the Import Terms button to upload the terms from your XML file, with translations in the language you created (use the Also import translations in... option to upload the translations).

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 app localization

Add the languages you want your app to be localized in, invite contributors to join the translation and start localizing your app. There are also other translation options you can choose from.

When you are done with the localization, you can export your localized languages to your computer by using the Export function in any Language page.
