Build a continuous localization cycle and collaborate across teams

  • Source texts are uploaded to Crowdin either by marketing or development teams.
  • Designers use ready source texts in their prototypes. Add new strings if necessary.
  • Translators working on Crowdin can see the screenshots that were sent from Sketch and provide better translations.
  • Once translations are ready, the mockups can be tested in different languages directly in Sketch.
  • The content is kept in sync between Sketch, Crowdin, and the version control system your team uses.
