Integrate your Visual Studio Code projects with Crowdin to optimize the localization process. The plugin allows uploading source strings instantly to your Crowdin project, downloading source strings from Crowdin, and downloading completed translations.
Once you install the Crowdin plugin, the Crowdin Explorer will appear in the Visual Studio Code’s Activity Bar as a new component. The plugin scans each workspace for a Crowdin-specific configuration file and builds a tree with the source files. Use Crowdin Explorer to manage your localization resources and automate file synchronization. Also, you can track translation and proofreading progress for each project and target language.
To work with the Crowdin plugin in the Visual Studio Code workspace, you need to create a Crowdin configuration file named crowdin.yml or crowdin.yaml.
