Can I do content updates when translation is in progress?

From a technical perspective, you can update your source files while translation is still in progress. Transifex is designed to facilitate agile development and help translate faster.

There are multiple ways to set up automation for updating content, as described here (manual, automatic, through API and CLI, GitHub integration). Transifex recognizes the difference, and your source file is always up-to-date in Transifex.

Our recommendation is to ensure that your translators know about your continuous localization workflow and possible multiple changes in the files so they aren't surprised when some strings get added or removed.

Kindly inform your community/translators or talk to your LSP about this mode of updating the source file so they can adjust accordingly.

Here are a few tips for translators:

  • They can enable a "watch" feature and get notified when changes in the source file happen.

  • All previous translations are stored in TM and will show in the “Suggestion” tab, if the match with the updated string is high.

  • All translation activity is reflected in the Translation Reports: even if the translated string was deleted or modified, the translation activity was captured in the report.
