Tool to convert JSON-based Application Resource Bundle (ARB) localization format by Google to another format and back.

npm install -g arb-convert

Background

ARB is the format of choice when using the Dart intl package to localize Flutter apps. It has not seen wide adoption by translation providers however. Since December 2019, Google shut down its Translator Toolkit that has natively supported the ARB format. So now Flutter devs can either migrate to another library and format, edit files by hand or convert to another format. This project aims to aid with the latter.

Supported formats

  • XLIFF 1.2/2.0/2.1
  • GNU gettext
  • ... add your format, PRs welcome

Please note that ICU placeholders and plural notations are not converted.

Node.js

const arbConvert = require('arb-convert');
const { convertFromArb, parseToArb } = arbConvert;
 
const xmlString = convertFromArb('xliff-1.2', {
    source: '{ "@@locale": "en-US", ... }',
    target: '{ "@@locale": "de-DE", ... }', // optional
    original: 'namespace', // optional
    sourceLanguage: 'en-US', // optional (override)
    targetLanguage: 'de-DE', // optional (override)
});
 
const result = parseToArb('xliff', {
    content: xmlString,
});
// { source, target, original, sourceLanguage, targetLanguage }
