Prerequisities

  • Your RoR app must be prepared for localization (see RoR documentation)
  • Project in Lokalise (you will need Project ID from project settings)
  • Read/write API token (generate one under your Personal profile)
  • Installed Lokalise CLI tool


Uploading to Lokalise

Once your app is prepared for localization, it should contain source language (we assume it's English) locale directory. e.g. myapp/config/locales/en.yml . Upload this file to Lokalise using CLI tool:

$ lokalise --token <token> import <project_id> --lang_iso en --file myapp/config/locales/en.yml


Downloading from Lokalise

As the translators are done you need to download the language files from Lokalise:

$ lokalise --token <token> export <project_id> --type yaml --bundle_structure '%LANG_ISO%.yml' --unzip_to myapp/config/locales/
