Approaches to manual translations


since Webflow doesn’t have mutli-language support, we wrote our own custom code to simply replace every text starting with [[1004]] (the number references the string) with the correct version from a JSON file (containing all translations).

The JSON file is exported from an Excel-Sheet, which is maintained by my colleagues who are responsible for the pages content.

Now I would like to enable my colleagues to update texts/translations by themselves.
Webflows Custom Code / Code Embed functionalities however have character limitations.

There are workarounds, however I don’t want to teach said colleagues how git works.

Can we upload the JSON as an asset and reference it in the custom code (i’m fine changing the suffix to .txt or whatever)? Will the link stay table across multiple uploads?
