Crowdin In-Context tool allows to translate texts directly within the actual web application. In such a way, the best translation quality is maintained.
In-Context localization is tied up with the actual project created in Crowdin, under which translatable files are stored.
This tool makes all the texts in the web app editable. Moreover, the translation process is real-time visible. Even the dynamic part of the application and strings that contain placeholders can be translated this way.
There are two common approaches to integrate Crowdin In-Context with your application:
- Staging or translation environment. If you are neither intended to invite your end-users to help with the translations nor consider using a “translation mode” in your production application, integrating Crowdin In-Context to your staging or dedicated translation app environment is a good solution.
- Production environment. Crowdin In-Context does not require any code changes in your application, so it can be used even on production. You decide how to turn it on and for what segment of users it can be activated. The feature that enables the translation mode can be either hidden, There were cases when the translation mode was enabled as an extra language.
