Localization update - Translation updates page

Automatically downloads and updates your translations by fetching them from localize.drupal.org or any other Localization server.

Integrating with git checkouts

This module is based on concepts very similar to Drupal core's update module. Modules and themes with their corresponding drupal.org projects are identified and translations are downloaded for the appropriate versions. If you use git checkouts instead of package tarballs or zip files, use Git deploy module, so projects and versions are identified properly.


This is version has improved performance for translation update. Especially for large translation files. It is a backport of the Drupal 8 core version.

Disable updates

To increase the efficiency of translation updates, I recommend to exclude custom modules and features from update checks. See Disable update at admin/config/regional/language/update.


This version is stable but has known performance limitations (see issue). Bugs reported for this branch will be fixed, but no new features will be added.
