Smooth localization of your source files

  • Auto-sync your files

    When you push your code to GitHub, it automatically detects all changes and adds new keys to Lokalise. Once the new keys are translated, you can create a pull request from Lokalise and merge the files to a selected branch on GitHub. Sync your files with a push of a few buttons and keep them up to date at all times.

  • Eliminate monkey work

    Imagine manually downloading and uploading files back and forth to GitHub and Lokalise. It's slow, inefficient, and is essentially wasting developer time doing monkey work. The GitHub integration automates and speeds up this process, and in the end, helps you significantly shorten the product release cycle.

  • Be organized and precise

    Avoid human errors by replacing manual code exports and imports with automated file exchange between GitHub and Lokalise. Use the Preview option when you create a pull request – it will allow you to see and confirm the resulting file/folder structure before pushing it to GitHub.

  • Developers

    The auto-pull option, as well as automatic key generation for new and updated text elements, eliminate a ton of manual work for developers.

  • Managers

    Streamline the workflow by asking developers to push their code to Lokalise every time they make any changes. All you'll have to do is assign tasks to translators.

  • Translators

    Translators won't have to wait on developers to excerpt texts from the code, define keys, and add them to Lokalise. That's all done with the push of a button.
