A JSON file is a lightweight data interchange format that is often used to store and exchange data in web applications.
JSON files can be used to store translation strings and other multilingual content in a structured and standardized format. From there all localization requires is using a specialized tool, like a JSON translator to extract, translate, and update these strings for every different language.
Common translation workflows for JSON files can involve exporting the JSON files to a translation management system (like DevTranslate), translating the content using an AI algorithm, and then importing the translated content back into the corresponding folders.
Avoiding translation errors is easy as long as the JSON files are properly structured and that the translation strings are correctly identified and extracted. Quite often professional translators who have experience working with JSON files are also included in the process to proofread the end result and make some final fixes.
Of course! That is one of the main reasons to use JSON files. It helps tremendously speed up and simplify localization. A professional JSON translator tool will streamline the whole process requiring just a few moments to localize your entire application.
