Setting Up Get Localization Sync for Eclipse

Settings are project specific and they can be easily found under your project properties.

From properties, you can find the Get Localization Sync plug-in.

Username - Your Get Localization username

Password - Your Get Localization password

Project - Your Get Localization project name (same that appears in project URL)

Default Platform - Platform you are developing on. It defines the file format of your i18n files. You can also set the format for individual files from their properties if you happen to have multiple different file formats in your project.

Pull file filter allows you to filter which files you wish to pull to your Eclipse project. For example just pull all the strings.xml's you can use filter:

Replace rules can be used to alter filenames when they're pulled to Eclipse project. You can for example create rules that change the language codes or installation path. E.g. if you wish to change language code from pt-BR to pt-rBR, just create following replace rule:
pt-BR/ -> pt-rBR/
Replace rules can be imported and exported so if you manage to do proper rules for example Android or some other platform, please do share them with us. We're happy to add them to our library.

Sending Files To Translation

Right-click the file you wish to send to Get Localization and select "Get Localization Sync -> Send to translation". Note that these always should be master files (files that translators translate from, typically in English), never send files that are in different language than your other master files.

Sync Translated Files Back To Project

After translation, you can easily sync the files back to any folder you wish.

Android Projects

Get Localization Sync for Eclipse handles Android projects specially when translations are synced back to "res" folder. They are automatically placed into appropriate values folders so they work in your application without any modification.
