Linux and Mac OS X

The Transifex Client is written in Python and most Unix-based systems have Python pre-installed. The easiest way to install it is with pip. Like most Python development tools, you probably want to install it inside a virtualenv, but you can surely install it as root using sudo.

root# pip install transifex-client

If you don't have pip installed, you can install it as follows:

user% curl -O
root# python


root# pip install --upgrade transifex-client

Installing from source

Just grab the code from GitHub and run the install script:

user% git clone
user% cd transifex-client
root# python install


The Transifex Client is also available for Windows. You can download the latest version from This executable is standalone and does not need to be installed. You can find more details for Windows here.
