Qt applications are usually translated these file formats

Best way to localize Qt apps

The first step is to extract the text to translate into language files. This process is called internationalization. The built-in libraries of Qt can be used for that.

Once you have internationalized your Qt app, use a translation software localization tool such as WebTranslateIt to manage your localization workflow.

It is easy to translate a Qt app with WebTranslateIt. Create a project, upload your source language file in the File Manager and translate it on the Translation Interface.

The tools included in WebTranslateIt, such as Batch Operations, the Translation Memory or Machine Translation can help you translate that file automatically, faster and cost effectively.
