Settings for Rmarkdown files

I tried to apply the md API to my Rmd files using GitHub sync.
But I found out that it is currently impossible to achieve this in Crowdin while keeping the original Rmd file format.
Therefore, I am trying to set custom segmentation for Rmd where the txt API is applied.
If anyone is considering a similar approach for translating Rmd files, I would appreciate any recommended settings. Thank you!

Hi @kozo.nishida ,

I see you contacted our team a day ago regarding .Rmd files and as a solution it was suggested to use File Type Modifier app

I’m afraid this is the only solution at the moment, sorry!

Hi @Roman ,

In our projects (Bioconductor and The Carpentries),
we need to translate Rmd without modifying the file type.
Therefore, I had to give up on using File Type Modifier app.
Instead, I would like to upload an SRX file for Markdown to the segmentation app.
(I will apply it to the Rmd files [recognized as txt].)
If you know of an SRX for Markdown, could you share it in this community?

Hi @kozo.nishida ! You are welcome to take a look at the articles attached, where it is described how to set up the segmentation rules:

Hi, I’m working with @kozo.nishida on this project.

I have some clarifications to make – I think we may actually be able to use the File Type Modifier app, but we need some help.

I have successfully set it up to import .Rmd files as with these settings:

These files then get parsed as .md in the editor, as desired.

(Aside: Why I am limited to one image and two links? It makes it difficult to communicate what we need help with, which seems rather counterproductive).

The problem is exporting the translated file back out (we need to change it back to .Rmd for our project). We are using GitHub integrations. I have set up the Regex Content Processor tool to change the file to .Rmd like this:

However, the problem we have now is that the translated file does not show up at all in our GitHub repo ( We have configured it so that translations should appear in the folder %two_letters_code%/episodes/%original_file_name%

… but the episodes/ folder is completely missing if you look at

Any suggestions for this workflow would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Hi @joelnitta ! As far as I can see, the preview is opened for the source files. Could you please share the screenshot of the preview for the translated files?

Hi @Tania
I tried applying the ‘typical SRX file’ from that article to our

, but it seemed not to consolidate multi-line sentences into a single segmentation.

I also think that the rules generated by the rule generator are very limited.

Could you provide more examples of SRX, not just Custom Segmentation | Crowdin Documentation ?

Ideally, I would like an SRX that performs segmentation in the same way as the md API to be shared within the community.

That is precisely what I tried to post earlier :slight_smile:
