What does it translate?
The Filesystem Connector translates anything stored in a file folder. This could mean everything from documents on your desktop to a code repository on a server.
To get started, set up your resources in Lingotek and create a project and a workflow. After setting up in Lingotek, install the Filesystem Connector.
Install the Lingotek Software Localization Tool (Filesystem Connector)

How does it work?
See the command line tool in action.
Can I translate desktop files?
Yes. The Lingotek Filesystem Connector command line tool can handle almost any desktop file, as long as it is saved in a file folder. Simply designate the file folder, and all contents of the folder will be sent for translation.
Note: The Lingotek Filesystem Connector cannot yet handle files managed via CMS integrations.
Where do I access completed translations?
You can pull all completed translations, or you can download specific files for specific locales using the Lingotek Filesystem Connector. These downloaded files will display in the original folder, immediately after the original source file, with the locale listed immediately after the file name.
For example, if you translate ‘sample.txt’ into Japanese, it will be downloaded as ‘sample.jp_JP.txt.’
Using the Tool
Once everything is installed, you'll be ready to use the tool to request translations. On the next page, we'll outline how to run key actions and provide a few examples.
