Creating a Project

Projects house the content you're translating, so you'll need to create a project before adding any content to Transifex for translation.

๐Ÿ“ Note: Only Organization Administrators can create projects in Transifex.

To create a project:

  1. Navigate to your Transifex Dashboard and click the Create new project button at the bottom left corner.

  2. Give your project a name. This can always be changed later.

  3. Choose a project type. File-based projects use traditional localization files, such as .PO and XLIFF. Live projects use Transifex Live, our JavaScript-based technology translating websites without files, and our SDK solution, Transifex Native.

  4. Pick a team to assign the project to. Or, if you don't have any teams yet, select "Create a new team for this project".

  5. Select the source and target language(s) of your project. The source language is the language you're translating from, and the target languages are the ones you're translating to. The source language cannot be changed once you create your project, but you can always change your target languages later.

  6. Click the Create Project button when you're ready.

Selecting project languages

Suppose you plan to order translations from one of our translation partners. In that case, your project's source language must be set to English (en) or English (US) (en_US), and the target languages you choose must exactly match the ones supported by your selected vendor.

For example, if a vendor only supports French (France) (fr_FR) and not general French (fr), you should choose French (France) (fr_FR) as your target language. You can see which locales each vendor supports by going to the Order Wizard and the Languages step (just don't place the order at the end).
