In SuiteCloud Development Framework, developers can work with file-based definitions of Translation Collections and term translations outside of NetSuite in their own development environment.
Translation Collections in SuiteCloud Development Framework
This section focuses on Translation Collections provided to SDF for the purpose of translatability support for other sections of NetSuite.
Translation Collections and their translated strings can be included in SDF SuiteApps or projects for automatic setup or customization of your NetSuite application using customization bundles.
For more information about using Translation Collections in SDF, see the following:

For information about deploying SuiteCloud projects with Translation Collections, see Deploying SuiteCloud Projects Containing Translation Collections.
For information about the inclusion of Translation Collections in SDF SuiteApps, see Including Translation Collections in SDF SuiteApps.
For information on the translationcollection object, see Translation Collection Object Fields in XML Definitions
For information of use of translation strings in SuiteCloud projects and an example, see Translation Collection Strings in SuiteCloud Projects.
In SDF SuiteApps or projects, Translation Collections and strings are defined by translationcollection custom objects and XLIFF files.

Translatable Fields in SuiteCloud Development Framework
SuiteCloud Development Framework (SDF) can be used to reference a translation string from a Translation Collection to your translatable field on a custom object.
In the UI, this referencing is referred to as linking of translation strings. For more information, see String Hierarchy and Translation String Linking.
For more information about the use of translation strings in Translation Collections on a translatable field, see Translatable Fields on Custom Objects.
