From the initial step of copy creation to the final tests of the translated mockups before release. We understand how important it is for design teams to be involved in the localization cycle on each step. We’re excited to launch Crowdin plugin for Adobe XD that connects the two systems and will help designers play an active part throughout the localization process.

With the new Crowdin plugin for Adobe XD, designers can upload production-ready texts from Crowdin and use them in their XD designs. Designers add new source strings when working in Adobe XD and send them to Crowdin for translation, along with the context for translators. The plugin also helps to create multilingual marketing visuals like brochures and banners faster.

In the previous posts of the Enterprise 101 series, we’ve looked around your new workspace and now move to another exciting aspect of our new product – fully customizable and automated project workflows.

Workflows help achieve more automation and build custom localization scenarios for each project separately. So you can adjust the localization process to all teams and departments involved, as well as all the types of localizable content, and products you build multilingual.
