Field Type Translation Import Improvements

Changes in: mapi Permalink

In the past using the import and export app didn’t work quite well for users using the field type translation feature.

With this update we improved the export and import functionality of field type translations.


  • When exporting from the target language (not default language) only fields that are defined as “Translatable” are exported.
  • The translation keys are the same in every target language (i18n codes have been removed).
  • The exported file contains all content from the default language.
  • When importing the translated file back the fields of the target language will be filled out.

The recommended workflow is like following:

  1. Beginn by filling in content in the default language.
  2. Select the language you want to translate from the menu bar.
  3. Go to the config tab of the content item and click export.
  4. Use the exported file in the translation tool of your choice to translate the default language to your target language.
  5. Import the translated language using the import button with the target language selected from the menu bar.
