Import webpages in any language

While can almost always import webpages in the language you’ve chosen, there are times where a simple URL import won’t work.

For example, you may have your browser set to your preferred language, and you’re seeing the website in that language, however when you go to import it into Figma with, the result is in English…

If this happens, the best option is to capture the webpage using our Chrome extension. That way, what you see is exactly what you’ll get in Figma.

5. Automatic .h2d file download

An .h2d file will automatically start downloading and be saved in whichever folder you have set to store downloads. This file can only be opened via the plugin.

The following message should appear in your browser: “ started debugging this browser.” This means everything is working as expected.

6. Drop the file into the Figma plugin

Drag-and-drop the generated .h2d file into the plugin to import fully-editable designs of the webpage in your chosen language.
