Publish translations



A request to this endpoint may require some time to complete. Please do not send another request until the previous one is completed, otherwise endpoint will return error response. Please try to avoid sending too many requests in a short period of time, otherwise rate-limiter service may block your next requests a while. Our recommendation is to send a request to this endpoint only when you are ready to publish translations and not more often than once per minute.

Publish translations from Translation Editor

To publish translations from translation editor, you need to specify _latest environment in environment query parameter.

    --request POST 'https://api.simplelocalize.io/api/v2/environments/_latest/publish' \
    --header 'X-SimpleLocalize-Token: <API_KEY>' \
    --header 'Content-Type: application/json'

Publish translations to the production environment

To publish translations to production environment, you need to specify _production environment in environment query parameter. Translations will be taken from the _latest environment by default.

    --request POST 'https://api.simplelocalize.io/api/v2/environments/_production/publish' \
    --header 'X-SimpleLocalize-Token: <API_KEY>' \
    --header 'Content-Type: application/json'

Publish translations to the custom environment

To publish translations to the custom environment, you need to specify your custom environment key in environment query parameter. The source environment is always taken from the configured order (from top to bottom) in the project settings page.

You can change the order of hosting environments in the 'Settings' -> 'Hosting' tab.

Translation Hosting order of hosting environments

The environment key can be found in the 'Settings' -> 'Hosting' tab. The key has been set during the environment creation, and it cannot be changed after creation.

Translation Hosting environment key

Sample request

According to the above example, the environment key is staging, and the source environment is _production.

    --request POST 'https://api.simplelocalize.io/api/v2/environments/staging/publish' \
    --header 'X-SimpleLocalize-Token: <API_KEY>' \
    --header 'Content-Type: application/json'

Get environment status



This endpoint allows you to check the current status of the environment, with the number of keys, languages, and non-empty translations and list of resources to download or use in your application.

Sample request

curl -X 'GET' \
  'https://api.simplelocalize.io/api/v2/environments/{environmentKey}' \
