    Saving Translation Dictionary via API

    Hi guys,

    I have a CSV file which contains list of words and translated words in different language.

    I looked into Services.LocalizationService service, and found a method call Save();

    But i can't seems to get it to work, do you guys have any example i can use? or any other way of storing translation dictionary?

    Thank you Shinsuke Nakayama

    Hi Shinsuke

    There is some documentation on the Localization service here:

    In terms of an example, I use it in my DictionaryItemKeySearch dashboard, to save an updated dictionary item translation:

    but also If you are creating dictionary items from scratch for an import then the following should work as an example:

     var ls = ApplicationContext.Current.Services.LocalizationService;    
    //create a holder for the item's DictionaryTranslations
    List<DictionaryTranslation> _translations = new List<DictionaryTranslation>();
     //the constructor for a DictionaryItem requires the Umbraco language object and value of the translated text                       
     //so get the language object, eg from Iso Code                            
    var language = ls.GetLanguageByIsoCode("fr-FR");
    // here we create a french translation for our item and add it to the list    
    DictionaryTranslation dt = new DictionaryTranslation(language, "bonjour le monde");                           
         //get or create a DictionaryItem, (passing in the Dictionary Key)                           
    IDictionaryItem di = ls.DictionaryItemExists("HelloWorld") ? ls.GetDictionaryItemByKey("HelloWorld") : new DictionaryItem("HelloWorld");
     // set the translations created above    
    di.Translations = _translations;
     //now save the dictionary item and translations to Umbraco
