Pros
- very easy to use interface - amazing costumers support - integrate with all the possible platforms: we use Django and iOS and we need to manage different sources of translations and Lokalise do it great.

Cons

We're using Lokalise to provide translations for both iOS and Android applications.

Pros
* The UI is intuitive and provides everything you could dream of in a translation service. * The service allows you to update the translations live by integrating the Lokalise SDK into the application. * Their customer support is absolutely amazing. Responding within minutes and solving issues faster than I've ever experienced in any other service before. Just 10/10.

Cons
I had a small issue with refreshing API tokens, but otherwise there is nothing I could complain about.

Make our release process faster and more reliable. Make our translations more consistent on one platform and accros all platforms.

Pros
Lokalise is years far ahead from its competitors. It solves every problems we encounter today in mobile apps. The way to assign specific platforms per translation, the possibility of having different keys per platform, universal placeholders, glossary, translations proposition based on Google Translate and translation memory. Also the API and fastlane actions are helping us improving our continuous intergation system!

Simple solution for delegating translations!

Used monthly for 6-12 months

Review Source: Capterra

I'm helping translate the Open Source software Home Assistant (home-assistant.io) and its iOS companion app. Lokalise is a solid foundation for a novice to help with translations and contribute to an OSS project with no programming knowledge required. 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
When trying to localize software, you can delegate the translation duties to anyone capable of doing the translation - be they inside or outside your company. 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.

Pros

Versioning is a bit confusing at first because it uses a different paradigm than what you are used to with their notions of release vs pre-release (and not tied to a semantic version for instance).

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
This is an incredibly flexible translation tool which provides a friendly UI for both translators and developers to interact with. Lokalise has translation memory, good plural handling, translation suggestions from the internet, and great platform support for many formats. 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. They've got a fun visual design style too, which is a nice change from the other more bare-bones translation tools I've used before.

We've been able to translate our SaaS application into a number of languages very quickly.

Pros
Great user experience. Prompt customer service. Very feature rich. Low time to value in that onboarding is very easy and quick.

Cons
Very few complaints. Their support team is located in Europe so US companies should plan for a time zone difference when it comes to support requests.

We had been using Excel to manage our terms, and it was quite difficult and in many aspects and time consuming. Since we changed to Lokalise, our term management, as well as translation tasks became much easier. I also appreciate their technical support (e-mail, chat) for their prompt replies.

Pros
Lokalise is easy to use to share terms with various people involved in a project. It's a cloud system, so we didn't need to implement special software either. We use to manage our terms with Excel, so sharing terms with others were not so easy.

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.

Review Source: Capterra

Some of my clients build mobile apps and video games and need my help localizing them into Russian through Localise. The tool is fantastic for freelance translators and offers an incredible built-in CAT-tool with in-context translation and preview.

Pros
Excellent CAT-tool makes my work extremely enjoyable and rewarding. Features that are actually useful, no clutter, a focus mode that lets me focus on translation - all of these features make it one of the best tools for mobile app/game localization.

Cons
Pricing is a bit steep if you ask me, however there even more expensive tools out there. I believe features and functionality is well worth the trade-off.
