Use our REST API

Interested in utilizing Localize as a content platform management system for your native mobile application?

Run-time Usage:
We're currently able to translate your mobile applications through our REST API, which allows run-time import/export of phrases and translations.

Note: This method would require your app to have a connection to the Internet while running.

Design-time Usage:
You may also want to use our REST API during development of your native app.

  • You could set up automated tasks in your development environment for sending/retrieving phrases.
    • Automatically create new phrases in Localize when new content is added to your app.
    • Automatically pull back in the translated phrases from Localize after they were translated.

Use our npm module

You may also use our npm module, @localize/node, a Node-based wrapper for Localize’s REST API.

Use the Localize CLI

You can also use the Localize CLI which uses a simple push/pull paradigm to push content into Localize and then pull out the translations.
Read about the CLI at https://help.localizejs.com/docs/localize-cli
