"Great product, fantastic support and constantly improving!"

What do you like best?

I really like Lokalise because I feel like they are genuinely trying to make the best translation management system possible. They already have a great product but are constantly adding new features and are really interested in hearing our feedback and suggestions. It's been amazing how much new functionality they've managed to implement in the past 6 months including some developments put in specially for us. The support is absolutely fantastic - they get back to you straight away and they all really know what they are talking about.

What do you dislike?

I have found a couple of bugs but the engineers have been able to fix them incredibly quickly (like in 40 minutes) so this hasn't been a big problem.

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

Lokalise has solved a huge number of problems for us. The review settings, filters, adjustable access rights and general user friendliness of the product has allowed us to implement a process for translation and clinical review where translators and reviewers can manage their own workflows and keep content translated without having to be constantly managed and monitored. The previous system we used was so confusing that I ended up spending hours training each translator up, sending them guides , answering questions, fixing their mistakes - Lokalise is much more intuitive which has a been a huge help

"A great product fit for a startup with several apps and an international customer base"

What do you like best?

First and foremost, the team are extremely communicative and helpful. Every question we asked was answered in minutes and they gave us fantastic and friendly assistance to get us onboarded swiftly. 100% awesome.

The QA feature found literally thousands of errors throughout our translations — we had missed these for *years* using our previous tool.

We export our translations for use in an iOS and Android app — there are variable placeholders in several files and Lokalise makes it super simple to define these so they are exported to the correct format for the target platform; no need to write scripts to convert from iOS "%@" to Android "%s" etc...

Additionally, we love the platform-specific features; being able to specifically disable a key for export on iOS or Android, or change the name of the key when exported, so that it can match that platform's conventions.

The pricing model is sensible, you are charged on translation keys and not penalised for adding new languages. Again, this is way better than other solutions on the market.

When importing translations, Lokalise is intelligent and recognises the language.

All the modern (and obscure) localisation formats that we needed were available.

The web interface is intuitive and easy to learn, you can tab across navigate quickly.

What do you dislike?

Nothing really, this has been a real upgrade in process and quality for us.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Speak with their customer-support team via the chat-feature on the website. They are extremely helpful and will be able to help you.

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

We've been able to implement clear, simple processes and improve the quality of the translation and localisation of our apps and websites.

What Translation Management solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Excellent Localization Tool and Customer Support service"

What do you like best?

- Support updating texts in mobile apps on the fly without having to release new app versions

- Easy to use, very detailed and feature-rich SDKs for iOS and Android and Dashboard Website

- Very fast response on support and especially technical support. I once worked with one of their engineers to debug some bugs in their Android SDK. And they released a new SDK version 5 minutes after that.

- Offer various options for translation service, with different professional levels.

What do you dislike?

- My team and I personally find Lokalise really helpful, nothing really to complain.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Really recommended if you want some easy to use, feature-rich and great customer support service for Localization

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

Our issues with localization and translation before Lokalise:

- We were having issues with managing all texts in our Android and iOS apps for about 10 languages. Plus managing translations for that many languages for 2 platforms was a pain.

- Whenever we have text changes no matter how minor, we needed to to release a new version.

Benefits that Lokalise brings to our team:

- All texts and translations in one place, no more copy-pasting translated text to the original texts.

- Now we can update texts (most of them) remotely without having to release a new app update. This is a huge advantage.

- Save us a lot of time for managing, cleaning up texts/translations, communicating back and forth with Translators.

"Lokalise makes translations easy"

What do you like best?

The simplicity and power of Lokalise makes it a great tool. It's simple enough for non-technical translators to use and has a great range of features and integrations.

What do you dislike?

There's not much I don't like about Lokalise, but if I was forced to pick one I'd say the limited number of seats per price plan can make it difficult to run multiple project. a quick message to support can fix this tho.

Recommendations to others considering the product

read the docs, if you can't find what you're looking for the support are really helpful.

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

We work with a remote client who use multiple Translations providers. Having strings centralised in Lokalise removes the need to share zipped xliff or xml exports via email. Lokalise has powerful integrations which have helped transform our workflow from an agonisingly manual to 100% automated.

"wonderful tool to translate amd review keys and keep the track at a glance"

What do you like best?

We like the easy integration, the glossary function to keep the consistency in all languages, the machine translation support, the well working QA and general filter option and , last but not least, the statistics, that help us paying each of the 50 translators what he or she has worked on precisley.

What do you dislike?

The statistics are not working with firefox, I need to switch to chrome every time.

Could be easier to add a new contributor to all of your projects. I handle 11 projects and, currently, I have to add a new contributor to every single one.

Recommendations to others considering the product

it is the best I've seen so far

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

Android App localisation. We have a improved overview, better workflows and more technical opportunities than before.

"I love Lokalise!"

What do you like best?

I love that we can update content in near-real-time. Also, the Lokalise team is constantly working to improve the tool so there always are useful new features that make my job easier.

What do you dislike?

Nothing really. The only thing I would suggest is perhaps improving the way team members are added. Currently, when I add a new person, I need to add them to each project - takes a bit of time. Would be great if I could do it in one place - just check the projects the team member has access to. Or, even better, if they are a "super admin", they could automatically get access to all projects.

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

For us as a fast-moving startup, updating content in real-time is very important because deadlines and requirements constantly change. With Lokalise, we no longer have to postpone releases or do hotfixes just because the content needs updating.

"Best Tool on the market"

What do you like best?

The translation memory and glossary features are excellent resources and are really easy to use. The support team are great and the ability to manage strings by project is a nice feature. The integrated transtion services from external vendors is a really clean and easy-to-use process and the prices back and standard of translation are great.

What do you dislike?

Nothing, everything works as expected and if I was ever stuck with a question or query the support team were able to respond quickly and effectively. The online help cetnre is also good.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Give it a try if you are looking for a way to manage strings in several languages, or looking for a more cost-effective way to get strings translated.

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

It is now much faster for us to get translations live on our website and the process of requesting and paying for translations is much smoother. There is also greater visibility within the business on the status of translated strings.

"Great Intuitive platform for Localisation across Mobile platforms."

What do you like best?

Their support team is top notch. You get immediate response for any queries.

The web platform to configure the localisations is brisk once you understand the flow. They have great customizations and integrations. Works seamlessly with ease.

What do you dislike?

Documentation of the framework, updated tutorials to use the platform, improved team payment system will be good to have.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try it out for localisations and save time!

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

Localising the whole app. One platform to get all localisations done saves a lot of development time.

It supports changing of text dynamically, which is great as we don't need to update the app.

"Lokalise makes complex translations set ups easy and organized"

What do you like best?

How easy it is to work with multiple people at the same time. Our devs add the keys, our designers review them, and we have multiple people from multiple translations companies and internal people translating our content. Seems like a nightmare, but Lokalise makes it super easy and organized.

What do you dislike?

You can run out of "seats" (people who have access to the tool) quite fast. We have to audit it every now and then so we can keep only the necessary people for that time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Their support team is fantastic. If you have any doubts ask them, it will make your life easier.

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

Consistent translations to all our apps, and easy use by devs, designers, translator and project managers.

"Great translation tool for adding "

What do you like best?

Possibility to add extra context (screenshots, glossary, description, comments) for a smoother translation process

Option to chat about a specific key via the comments

Easily create tasks by pre-filtering the scope of the task

Translation suggestions based on your translation history/translation services

Super friendly customer service

What do you dislike?

The tool is improving constantly, sometimes there are some things that are missing that would save me time but when reporting these issues, they are often times already working on it to fix it.

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

We looked for a new translation tool because we want to improve consistency over different projects. The possibility to add context was also missing from our previous tool. Lokalise greatly improved our translation process.

"Very useful tool, great support, easy to use"

What do you like best?

- It's very easy to onboard new people as the tool is self explaining

- the developer documentations are up to date and for our devs it was very easy to implement

- the live edit view feature helps our product marketing to adjust text in context of the site and app.

What do you dislike?

- it would be very nice to have feature branches or release branches so we would be able to steer what translations go live and which not. we can do it by tagging but it would be cool to have something more reliable maybe connected to our github branches

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

Translations can be done by every one also outside of the company . it just needs an invite. not really needed a big onboarding as the tool is very self explaining. the statistics allows an overview to see where translations are missing.

"Recommend Lokalise"

What do you like best?

UI is very intuitive, everything is clear from the first glance. The onboarding part is smooth as well. Like that you can get the translation update nearly in real time.

Lokalise have good cooperation with other translation services, which are integrated into the service.

The good thing is that you can get the answer to your question from the support really fast.

What do you dislike?

For the moment I like nearly everything.

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

We are experimenting with going to the different markets with our app, so the translations are really important for us.

"Great UX and API integrations"

What do you like best?

Web API to make integrations easy and fast and clear responses in their support. Webhooks on data changes from the Lokalise web application are as well a great feature.

What do you dislike?

In lag of any real issues I could mention a couple of bugs in the APIs. But it's really nothing unexpected.

"Generally, I had a good experience "

What do you like best?

How easy it is to change a string. And also I liked the support team, specially your android support-dev!

What do you dislike?

I don't like that I have to build every time I make a change. I wish it was a single button that appears everytime I make a change (like a build and deploy button).
