File formats

Pootle supports many file formats through the powerful Translate Toolkit API. The Toolkit also provides several format converters for other formats, this will allow you to host a lot of translatable content on Pootle.

All these formats can be downloaded for offline use/or translation (for example in Virtaal). We recommend Virtaal for offline translation. They can also be downloaded in XLIFF format.

Bilingual formats

These formats are translation files that include the source and target language in one file.
