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

Lokalise has completely removed the headache of managing strings across all our apps and it has reduced the need for constant reviews and re-working of translations. Lokalise has completely transformed how we translate our apps. We don't have to struggle with zip files flying around via email and are able to quickly and efficiently produce new builds for review. Once we had fixed the main problem, we were able to use Lokalise to completely automate our translations process using web hooks. When translations are Reviewed by our provider, we pull these into Bitbucket, generate a new build and run UI tests to generate Screenshots which are sent to the client within one hour. This process used to take at least 5 days per language.

Translators who work for our agency love using Lokalise. UI is very easy to understand and the fact that the clients can add screenshots of where the translated text be visible in their app is a great help as it aids in understanding the context. It is possible to see in real time the progress of the translation, which is very helpful for the project managers to see the translation progress. Customer service is very fast and questions are answered and resolved quickly.

We develop mobile apps for iOS and Android. We have several products and each of them has from 6 to 25 localisations. It is unreal to maintain all of these localisations by yourself and Localise solve this problem nicely.Easy to filter, search and edit keys. Automation of the localization​ process with translation providers. Supporting iOS and Android localization files.
