New in Web Translate It: easy integration to public Github projects

By Edouard on February 9, 2010

I just pushed a new feature to Web Translate It that will make it really easy to translate an open-source project hosted on Github.

Have it your way

There are many ways to update or sync your language files with Web Translate It.

On the File Manager, you can now specify the path to a language file hosted online.

You can use this new feature to link to any file accessible by HTTP, like a RAW file hosted on github.

Tick the “Check for updates periodically” checkbox and we will check for updates on this file daily. If there are new strings to translate, Web Translate It will send you an e-mail to let you know.

One more thing

We also have a post-receive URL that will check for updates on your file every time you push code to your github repository.

For more information, please refer to the documentation.

If you are not using github, you can still use this feature, as long as the language files are accessible via HTTP (using trac or gitweb for example). You can also use the post-receive URL feature, which works with every SCM.

I hope you will find this new feature useful. It makes it really easy to maintain translations of an open-source project hosted on github, and I hope it will help improving the translation quality of open-source projects.

Thank you for using Web Translate It.
