Pootle is a web portal which is designed to be a web translation tool. We can run Pootle like an internet server and run a local copy on an intranet. Pootle has a user friendly interface which ensures better quality and easier translation of projects. Users can log into the Pootle and create their own projects under any language, and they can also add or retrieve any language from any project or any project from any language. Although Pootle has many advantages, it also has its drawbacks, and one of the biggest drawbacks of Pootle is that whatever translation is made by the user remains in their local machine. Whenever Pootle is installed, users have to do everything from scratch. In this project this issue has been addressed, and a smart solution is provided for the users. An extension is made from the Pootle server to the svn repository which is an open source repository. With the implementation of this extension each user will be able to download all the works or translations that have been created so far, and they can also add their own work to the repository to make it useful globally.
