Figma Connector

 Figma logo with words

Our new Figma Connector makes it easy to design great customer experiences across any language, right from within Figma. The Lilt Figma Connector allows you to:

     • Send Figma files to Lilt for localization

     • Apply translation memories for each locale

     • Choose the translation method

     • Receive completed translations directly in Figma

For the first time, customers who use Lilt and Figma can also decide between two translation methods to use when localizing designs - Instant or Verified.

Narrow Figma Lilt Plugin

For rapid iteration, Instant Translation provides a machine translated version of your design within seconds. For high fidelity designs, Verified Translation sends your designs to Lilt, where human linguists translate, review, and approve your newly localized designs before sending them back to your Figma instance.
