Import a translation language pack


The text within Cerb’s interface can be translated into any language.

Translations are shared as .xml files in the TMX1 format.

Language packs use the following naming convention:


The <language> and <country> codes use ISO 6392 and ISO 31663 respectively.

For instance:

  • de_DE: German (Germany)
  • en_US: English (American)
  • en_GB: English (British)
  • es_ES: Spanish (Spain)
  • es_MX: Spanish (Mexico)
  • it_IT: Italian (Italy)

Workers and contacts can each configure their own preferred language.
