Git integration for iOS

Make your iOS app localization a breeze with Smartcat's Git integration by automatically pulling content from your Git repository and pushing it back when translated.

How does the integration work?

Once connected, the integration will automatically find and pull string resources (.strings files) from your iOS app’s Git repository into Smartcat. There, you can manage your localization project using advanced features such as a special editor, translator assignments, workflow management, and so on.

Smartcat will push the translated resource files back to your Git repository automatically, so you don’t have to do it manually.

How do I use the integration?

If needed, you can configure Smartcat to automatically push translations back after they are completed, or after a certain stage in the workflow is reached. This is useful, among other things, if you want to get machine-translated content back in your repo before human translation is complete.


Create a new integration indicating your Git repo data in Smartcat.


Create an SSH key in Smartcat and register it on your Git server.


Choose the languages to translate to and workflow settings.


Wait for the sync to finish.


Translate the content using standard Smartcat features.


Sync the translated documents back with the click of a button, or enable automatic sync.
