The app used by thousands and thousands of iOS and OS X developers to localize their applications.

The only tool that allows you to:

- *generate* the Localizable.strings file with the list of strings to be translated

- *merge* the strings as soon as the translators will provide you the translated strings.

All with a simple and easy user interface. An essential tool that will save you hours of work.

Supports Objective-C, Swift, Objective-C++, and C files. OS X El Capitan compatible.

What’s New

Version 2.3

We've been listening to your feedback. Now Localizable Strings Merge uses the Git-friendly UTF-8 encoding.

This version is also fully compatible with OS X 10.11 El Capitan and provides several improvements and bug fixes behind the scenes.

Please note: when you regenerate an old Localizable.strings file, you have to tell Xcode to reinterpret it as UTF-8. Select the file in the project navigator and open the File inspector on the right. In the Text Settings section, choose Unicode (UTF-8) from the Text Encoding pop-up menu. Then, in the dialog that appears, click Reinterpret.

One click masterpiece

You must get this. The key feature is that it handles the SECOND batch of translation. Genstrings can do the first, but as soon as you need five new strings added your life gets complicated. But this app is just drag-project, drag-project, hit button. It does the diff and merge for you. It even works if you didn't use it for the first translation pass. It's a thing of beauty.

So far so great

I only just started using this app but it seems to be exactly what I was looking for. Drop your source folder on the left and your .lproj folders on the right and let it go. Keeps things clean and preserves comments. Great work!
