What do you like best?

I love how quickly you can get Localize up and running. I was able to get it implemented on a client's site within minutes. Although I initially felt overwhelmed about this client request, Localize solved my problem with their amazing solution.

Good to be able to use machine translation with real people if I choose.

The interface was simple enough to use, was able to find things as needed.

localize is super easy to implement and with a little bit of javascript, it can even be attached to different domains so each domain serves its corresponding language. I use it for a number of websites and it has never failed me. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Nothing—Localize not only accomplished my goals but also made my clients extremely pleased with something that could potentially be a complicated task.

The only problem is that translations are connected to precise paragraphs of text, change one letter and you have to go into the system to reconnect the previous translation, even changing a letter in a capital letter will cause a translation to disappear online, without a warning.

What do you like best?

Super easy for everyone to contribute. Even non-technical team members can help by adding screenshots, keys, translations, or placing orders. Localize was a recommendation by another mobile start-up. We tested along the process 6 different players on the market and localize was by far the best solution.

Thanks to localize we can move much faster to make our app available in several different languages around the globe.

Due to the localize api we were able to implement it into our backend - it's working seamless at the moment and even feels for a non-technical person like plug & play.

Other solutions very often don't have the perfect integration for your individual product or even work with text files. So whenever we want to release new content or a new localization to our app it just takes us at most 2 days. We always choose bilingual translators and created internal additional feedback loops with consultants, friends and families. It's just perfect for us! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes saved linked screenshots disappear or it takes some time to load, but I would say that's all Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

fast translations, fast feedbacks, connecting external and internal translators, integration to our backend / checking if the text in the app matches the latest version on localize, sub title for video content, managing the full content of the app, Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

1> Very easy user interface, no guidance required.

2> Documentation is clear.

2> Just include the library and all phrases will get uploaded in localize account for translations.

3> Providing machine translations.

4> I really felt amazing with latest update of providing localization support for numbers and images. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

This is not exactly as dislike, but kind of improvement.

We have added 'notransalte' in N number of similar places in our web application.

If if can be given at css class level or at element level would really help and reduce effort of adding 'notranslate' at many places.

This also makes sure we have not missed adding 'notranslate' for any element Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The user interface is very easy to use and the translations can easily be updated at any time. When you implement changes, they take effect immediately which is awesome! There are tons of languages to choose from as well. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The pricing is pretty high considering there are some free services out there. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Worth using if you only need to translate a few projects and languages, if you need more than that it may be too pricey of a solution for your business (depending on the size of your operation). Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Localize has an easy to use interface and has enabled our team to translate our platform with minimal development or administrative effort. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The only feature that caused any (very minimal) trouble for our team is the default to enable automatic archiving. We have an introductory assessment that is only periodically revisited, so the phrases were quickly moved to the archive and therefore did not show as immediately translated upon the next identification. Disabling the automatic archiving resolved this for us. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Take advantage of the resources made available to Localize clients in the form of their support center and your personal contacts. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The development effort involved with translating a platform of our size would have been cumbersome - both in the initial implementation, as well as in ongoing support. With Localize, we were able to support localization of our platform with less than a month of development effort. With the support of localization, we are now able to reach and appeal to a broader audience. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

LocalizeJs (LJS) was very easy and fast to set-up and start showing results in target language. All the phrases/strings from your apps go to the same tool and are easy to see and manage. The tech support/help is very responsive and helpful to deal with all kinds of problems you might have. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Since LJS pushes all the strings from your Webapps to their tool, it is little bit tedious to find all the data that must not be send to the tool, e.g. confidential user information etc. You still have to find a way to localize possible 3rd party components on your Webapp, because at least we were not able to translate them properly with LJS. The tool is not geared towards deployment flow, where you have DEV, QA, Staging and Production environments and you have to move phrases/strings between different environments. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

To localize several web apps written in different frameworks (Angular, React) in very short time frame. Have all the strings in one place where they are easily managed and edited by different stakeholders. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

We can easily manage the translation of our pages, super simple! Really pleased we found a tool that works so well. Users browsing in another country will automatically see the correct translation for them which is great. The support team is great too! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Haven't quite figures out the how to manage staging sites. e.g. adding the translations to a page before it gets released. There's probably a way to do this! Also haven't managed to translate pop-ups on pages. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

For websites build in Webflow, that does not yet serve multi-language websites, it has been a deal-maker for client websites to be able to serve this solution. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The SDK is super easy to use with clear documentation on Frontend and Backend integrations with little filler material for senior engineers. There's also plenty of tutorials and examples for beginners as well. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The starter plans are affordable for a small startup to expand to a few different markets. But if you need to expand globally, the pricing goes up quite a bit which only makes sense for larger companies. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Translation is hard enough as it is but doing that for multiple locales and keeping the translations up to date for new strings requires a lot of code. Localize takes that all that work out and simplifies the entire process with an sdk that auto translates and serves the strings in the right locale. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The ability to automatically translate text instantly, refine it or override it yourself, or upgrade the machine translating to business quality language in such a simple interface is invaluable to us as we try to grow internationally.

We've found Localize to be really flexible in terms of how we integrate with our website and how we use it amongst our staff. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Being able to accurately translate these posts has allowed us to engage with their own following and cross-promote our brands a lot more effectively. We can translate the most important parts of our website as needed based on our site data such as which country people are accessing it from. It's demand-driven and very cost-effective.

The best thing about Localize is that there's little to no tech required to get a site translated into another language whereas other solutions in this space require deeper integration and custom code to translate text strings on a webpage. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

While there's little technical implementation, it means there's some sacrifices you have to make from a consumer experience standpoint. More specifically, because this is a java script solution, the page does render as it would normally for a quick moment and then the translations start appearing. Depending on how quickly the JS loads, it might be noticeable to the user that we're swapping around content. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The ability for us to deploy a new language /translations to our site without the need for formal technical release deployments is a huge plus. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

We needed to professionally translate our microsite into multiple languages to suit our global audience. Localise ticked all the boxes, especially with the human translation offering and the WP integration. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The lingo used. As a new user and someone who uses SaaS apps all the time, the word 'Phrases' didn't resonate with me and felt like it over complicated a very straight forward process: I want to translate my whole website into x language. There is also the added complication of having to buy credits too, but thats no biggy. I logged a couple tickets in the 'translate my website via a human' process in the end. It shouldn't be this jagged. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
