This is a Android Studio/ IntelliJ IDEA plugin to localize your Android app, translate your string resources automactically.

Translate all your strings in your string resources(e.g. strings.xml) to your target languages automactically. Help developers localize their Android app easily, with just one click.


Right click the strings resource file, choose 'Convert to other languages'.
Then check the target languages.
After clicking OK, the string resources will be translated and created in the correct value folder.


  • Filter the strings you don't wanna translate by adding NAL_ prefix to the string key, case sensitive. Change:
    <string name="flurry_id">FLURRY_ID</string>
    <string name="NAL_flurry_id">FLURRY_ID</string>

  • Filter the strings you don't wanna translate by adding filter rule in plugin settings interface

  • Set client id or client secret for Microsoft Translator, in case of running out of quota.

  • Set Google API key to use Google Translation API, you need to do this, at the Public API access section of the Credentials page, create a new Browser key. Please NOTE that this is a paid service.

More features are coming, please check Todo.


  • Currently, Android Localizationer only support translate English to other languages
  • The result may not meet your standards due to the Translation API that this plugin is using, so keep your string resources as simple as possible
