Downloading a Translation File

The Novatus system allows Administrators to download a Portable Object (.PO) file, which contains all of the translated words and phrases that have been entered and saved, along with the original text. The PO file associates each original, translatable string of a given package with its translation in a particular target language.

A PO file can be read and edited, as needed, by a translator. Therefore, Novatus plans to provide additional functionality in the near future, which will allow Administrators to re-import a PO file so that any updates to the file are automatically recognized by Novatus Contracts.
