To make it easier to know what a resource is about and which ones to work on first, Transifex lets you categorize and prioritize resources.

Categorizing resources

Categories are like labels or tags and provide an extra hierarchy for organizing resources.

To categorize a resource:

  1. From the project navigation in the Dashboard, select the project with the resource you want to categorize.

  2. Click the Resources link in the left menu.

  3. From the list of resources, pick the one you want to add a Category to.

  4. On the right side of the header, click on the three vertical dots to expand the menu, and click Settings.

  5. Type a category name into the Category field from the popup, then press the Enter or Return key. You can add as many categories as you like.


  6. Hit Save settings to finish labeling the resource with the new categories.

When you return to the list of resources, you’ll see the categories next to each resource name.

Prioritizing resources

If you have a set of resources within a project but need some to be translated before others, you can mark those resources as either high or urgent priority so translators work on those first.

To prioritize a resource, head to your list of resources and click on the space to the left of a resource name to toggle through the priority options.

You can give each resource one of the following three priorities:

  • Normal

  • High

  • Urgent


Using search and sorting options

At the top of the resources list, you can see a search field and some sorting options. A categories dropdown is also available only if you have added categories for your resources.


Searching resources

To search across resources, you can start typing, and the resource list will be automatically updated with the most relevant resources. You can search by typing a resource's name or file format.

Sorting options

You can sort in ascending or descending order by:

  • Name of the resource

  • Priority of the resource

  • Source updated. When was a resource updated/re-uploaded on Transifex.

  • Completion, the localization progress of the resource

📝 Note: If you want to check the resource that needs the most work, try sorting resources by completion ascending. This will bring less localized resources to the top of the list.
