Lokalise Feature Reviews

Just What We Needed

2020-01-06

We have used Lokalise to integrate our translatable codebase with translations, and leverage paid and volunteer translators to help us increase our language coverage.

Pros

The best things about Lokalise are the integration with other tools like Github and Slack, as well as the UI and the access controls. I like how easy it's been to import and export sources and translations to and from our code repositories, and the ease with which we can control who can do what within different languages.

Cons

The only thing worth mentioning is sometimes a slight delay because of time zone in getting support when we were first learning how to use it, because we're in Arizona and they're in Latvia.

Great instrument for mobile development

2019-04-08

We develop mobile apps for iOS and Android.

Pros

Easy to filter, search and edit keys.

Cons

Screenshots and description are crucial for the right translation. Drag & drop for a screenshot and description editing would be easier without additional popups on the main project screen.

So easy, even at extreme scale

2020-02-07

Now, translators can see what text is being edited in real time and work together to ensure the most correct translations.

Pros

It's also packed full of features that make managing localizing easy, like SDKs for iOS and Android, easy batch edit tools and integrations with third party apps like Slack so we get notified when new strings are added.

Cons

Sometimes the website can be a bit slow... but we do have thousands of strings so I can't really blame them

2020-03-19

Pros

--Intergration with Github --API to automate translation process --Customer support, timely response --Screenshots for context

Game Changer

2018-12-20

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.

Pros

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.

Cons

Honestly, not much. the only problem we've had is with User Permissions, users report not being able to see Languages but it's always because we haven't updated their permissions.

Working with Lokalise

2020-01-16

Pros

Easy to use, nice Layout, features that help automate the data exchange, QA features, Tools to discuss the best translation, or to clarify the meaning of something. API to communicate with Lokalise.

Cons

Sometimes, depending on the QA state, it is difficult to find a specific key. The API shows information you cannot see in the UI.

Simple solution for delegating translations!

2020-01-04

I'm looking into how we can use Lokalise at work to help translate our business software as well - the workflow enabled by Lokalise fits our problem ideally as we have international partners that could help with translations but can't because we don't yet use this tool.

Pros

It's simple to use and integrates well into app development and CI/CD workflows!

Cons

Tracking and giving permissions to languages in projects with many people doing translations is less than ideal but not a dealbreaker.

Simple UI, loads of features. Compatible with all our apps and great customer service.

2018-02-27

There's not much I dislike about it, though I suppose I'd make some of the buttons a little less washed out looking. I thought there were in a disabled state at first.

Pros

We were having some issues getting our files to import and export properly, and I received excellent support and an improvement to their import/export to help meet out workflow.

A great tool to help you localize your applications

2019-02-07

I work with an application that needs to be translated to multiple languages, Lokalise handles this workflow very easy, allows you to assign collaborators that can handle on or more languages.

Pros

Also has an API that allows to upload/retrieve your translations very easy and adapt them to any method you use in your app to translate your application.

Cons

The UI is a little confusing at first, but once you get it, you will be really productive with Lokalise

Comprehensive Solution for a Translation Workflow

2019-05-28

We are managing all our strings with this solution We are translating into 3 different languages (e.g. English, German and Romanian). The benefits we have realized lies first of in dissolving one bottleneck of passign all the translated strings through our development team. Now our managers and translators handle all the strings and formulations, and the devs focus on other tasks.

Pros

The app has really reviewed translation workflows and included integrations and tools for all the roles in the team.

Cons

At the time of the review we haven't encountered any issues or discomforts with the solution.

Reivew on Lokalise

2019-03-28

Since we changed to Lokalise, our term management, as well as translation tasks became much easier.

Pros

Lokalise is easy to use to share terms with various people involved in a project.

Cons

We put tags on each term but as the number of tags used in a project increases, it becomes difficult to find a specific tag from the list.
