Project Overview tab

When you start Lokalize first time, you will see an empty Project Overview tab. Project Overview is a file manager view, which helps you keep an overview of your PO files. The Lokalize suite will help you to translate quickly and also to keep translations consistent. Lokalize workflow implies that you start with creating/opening a project. The Project Overview tab displays a file tree with statistics with current project, such as percentage of the translated units completed and the last translator. It allows you to open a selected file in a tab of current Lokalize window.

To create a new project, use ProjectCreate new project. This will guide through the steps to create a new project. In Project menu you can also find options like Project overview, Configure project, Open project, and Open recent project.

Here you can configure the project.
