Write console logs into a file

This guide will show you how to dump the log file into a file.

Why might you need this?

  1. You can not access the Developer Tool window. (You can open Developer Tool window by pressing F12. Developer Tool only available on the developer version of Translator++)
  2. You are using the regular version which doesn’t have Developer Tool
  3. You want to generate and preserve the logs automatically.


This method is only available for Translator++ Ver. 4.4.6 or greater.

How to enable file logging

1. Open the options menu

You can open the options menu by clicking button

2. Go to the General → Log & Debugging section and check the “Log to file” option.

3. Close the options window and restart your Translator++

4. Reproduce the action that you want to log.

5. Browse the log file(s) located at data/logs/ relative from your Translator++ installation.


Enabling this option will impact the performance slightly. So, you want this option to be off all the time, except when you’re debugging or reporting problems.

Enable file logging through manifest file (package.json)

In some cases you may not be able to access the options menu because the application crashes on boot-up.

In a scenario like this you might want to forcefully enable file logging via the manifest file.

Open the package.json file in the root of the Translator++ folder, set the logToFile value to true.
