Yes. The Lingotek Filesystem Connector can handle almost any desktop file, as long as it is saved in a file folder. Simply designate the file folder, and all contents of the folder will be sent for translation.
You can pull all completed translations, or you can download specific files for specific locales. These files will download to the original folder, with the locale listed immediately after the file name.
For example, if you translate ‘sample.txt’ into Japanese, it will be downloaded as ‘sample.jp_JP.txt.’
