Searching and Filtering

Finding phrases in the Phrases tab of your Localize dashboard

For applications with a lot of content, finding specific phrases can be challenging. Localize offers several ways to help you search and filter phrases in the Phrases tab of your Localize dashboard.

📘

Using Multiple Filters

Keep in mind that you can use many combinations of the following filters to dig down deep to find specific phrases.

Search Bar

You can use the search bar to search for specific text in a phrase.

📘

Possible Search Types

The search text can be any of the following:

  • Text in the source language
  • Text in any of the target languages
  • A phrase key
    • If you are using keys in your phrases (e.g. from a YAML file import) you can search for phrases using the key of the phrase ("phraseKey").

Simply start typing in the search bar and Localize will start searching as you type.

Note: If you search with a target language text string and that target language isn't the currently selected language, the search text will still be found and the source language phrase will be displayed with the currently selected language's translation (if available). Switching to the target language of the search text will display the translation in that target language.


Filters

Filter by Bin

You can filter which phrases you are viewing by selecting the specific Bin that you wish to view, based on the phrase states.


Filter by Language

Selecting a specific language will show translations for the selected language.


Filter by Pages

Selecting a page/folder from the filter by Pages list will show all phrases in that page or folder.

📘

2 Levels Deep

The Pages filter goes up to 2 folders deep. If you have content that is in deeper subfolders, it will be visible in its parent folder when using this filter.


Filter by Labels

If you have added any custom labels to your phrases, you can filter by one or more labels. You can also filter by System Labels.

NOTE: To filter by multiple labels, simply select each of the desired labels in the list.


Filter by Translated By

You can use one or more of the many filters in the "Translated By" filter, including translated by machine, translated by any human, or translated by a specific human.

📘

Finding phrases not yet translated by a human

If you are trying to find all phrases that have not yet been translated by a human, use the "Translated by: No Human Translation" filter.

The "Translated by: Machine" filter shows all phrases that were ever translated by machine.


Filter by Created

You can filter by the date that phrases were created.
