Importing and exporting translations

Dilingual supports the import and export of translations using a self-service web interface. The import and export feature enables you to integrate Dilingual with any existing workflow and CAT tools ("Computer-assisted translation").

Who can use import and export?

To be eligible for this functionality one of the following conditions need to be met:

  • Project is using the "Pro" plan
  • Project is managed by a translation agency partnering with Dilingual.

If you are not in one of these categories, you will be unable to use the import or export functionality.

Note: If you need a temporary initial import on another plan please contact our support team. In many cases, we can assist with an initial import free of charge.
