We use Transifex and their CLI to manage our translation files. Follow these instructions to get started.
Note: There is no need to run
tx config as the project has already been
configured to work with Transifex. See the configuration file in
Next, generate an API Token,
tx init, and paste the generated API Token when prompted. This will
allow the computer to push (Submit) and pull (Download) files to/from Transifex.
# Submit translation files to Transifex $ tx push -s -b develop
# Download translated files from Transifex $ tx pull -a
# Add the placeholders into the downloaded translation files. $ node tools/transifex.js
