Localization Tips and Product Updates

Introducing Project Workflows [Crowdin Enterprise 101 Series]

6 mins read

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.

A workflow maps out the content journey within each Crowdin Enterprise project. It consists of the set of steps the source text should go through to get localized. 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.

Let’s give workflows on the Crowdin Enterprise a closer look, discuss the basics, and focus on some popular use cases.

Designing for the global audience might get tricky. Especially if you deal with multiple languages, handle the updates all by yourself or can’t test translated mockups before the development starts. Any manual work you do is a waste of time and the last-minute fixes only slow down the release.

With Crowdin for Figma, design teams can now build an efficient localization workflow. Automate routine processes, keep texts in sync, and make sure the translators have the necessary context. Crowdin launches a plugin for Figma to help you add and edit multi-language versions of a prototype. With little less effort and more focus on the work you do best – creating beautiful designs.

Without submitting a new app version on the App Store or Google Play each time new translations arrive.
