What is it ?
The plugin provides a mean to extract all the labels presents in your sketch page. Once extracted, those labels can be edited in a table which can then be imported in the page. This provides an easy way to translate a design. The table consists of a set of key-value defined as follow
- ArtBoardName__fieldName (case of text)
- ArtboardName__sharedName (explained later on).
You can share your translation by exporting/importing them in JSON or CSV format. This plugin was create with the idea to improve the process between Designer/Copywriter/Developer.
By using clear names for sketch elements, everyone involved can clearly understand what element stand for and the transition from one party to another is improved.
The plugin will go through each artboards present in the sketch page. Be sure to provide a proper name to your elements, that name will serve an identifier for the labels It will retrieve the text of the following elements:
A name precedede with [x] will be skippe during the extraction.
Currenlty there is a short list of common names, these will be shown only once in the table.
