Sync with an Existing Google Sheet

Choose Existing Google Spreadsheet. Select the spreadsheet you would like to sync with, then click Sync. LE will remember the spreadsheet you have chosen to sync with.

Sync with a New Google Sheet

If you have not synced to a spreadsheet before, the New Local File and New Google Spreadsheet buttons export your local languages to a spreadsheet and then find differences between the two, which results in no differences being detected. This is used for the first time syncing if you have added strings and languages all within the LE Editor and not imported from a sheet before. This creates a master copy to sync with.

Choose New Google Spreasheet. Enter the title of the new spreadsheet, then click Sync. LE will remember the spreadsheet you have chosen to sync with.
