crowdin-client 0.3

Command-line client for the API

Latest Version: 0.4

A client for the Crowdin API which lets you push source translations to crowdin and pull translated content.


(sudo) pip install crowdin-client

If you don’t have pip:

(sudo) easy_install pip
(sudo) pip install crowdin-client

If you don’t even have easy_install on windows, get the .exe at, install it, add c:\Python2x\Scripts to the Windows path (replace Python2x with the correct directory).


Create a .crodwin JSON file in your root project directory with the following structure:

    "project_name": "crowdin project name",
    "api_key": "project API key",
    "localizations": [
            "source_path": "locale/en/LC_MESSAGES/django.po",
            "remote_path": "path/to/django.po",
            "target_langs": {
                "fr": "locale/en/LC_MESSAGES/django.po",
                "de": "locale/de/LC_MESSAGES/django.po",
                "it": "locale/it/LC_MESSAGES/django.po"
            "source_path": "locale/en/LC_MESSAGES/*.po",
            "excluded" : "_*, ~*",
            "remote_path": "path/to/",
            "target_langs": {
                "fr": "locale/en/LC_MESSAGES/",
                "de": "locale/de/LC_MESSAGES/",
                "it": "locale/it/LC_MESSAGES/"

The second entry in the json is to use a complete directory as translation source / destination. Useful for documentation. DO NOT FORGET the trailing slash for directories.


Push source files:

crowdin push

Pull translations:

crowdin pull

If you’re importing a project with existing translations to crowdin, run crowdin push -a to also upload the local target files to crowdin. The -a flag should only be used once, you must then use the push / review / pull workflow provided by Crowdin.


  • 0.2: Added -a flag to crowdin push.
  • 0.1: initial version.
