There's no reason to not support multiple languages now

2019-05-22

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.

Pros

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.

Cons

We haven't hit any issues so far and implementation was well documented.

Website Localization with Ease

2019-11-19

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.

Pros

Localize has an easy to use interface and has enabled our team to translate our platform with minimal development or administrative effort.

Cons

The only feature that caused any (very minimal) trouble for our team is the default to enable automatic archiving.

Quick to wet up, perfect for offering multi language support on your webflow website

2019-09-16

Pros

And highly customizable.

Cons

One problem is that when you change a single letter in your text the translation disappears from the online website without any warning. So be aware to reconnect the old translation to the changed original text.

Easy human translation for international wordpress website

2019-08-21

Nice and easy to get my website translated into multiple languages via a human being, utilising the wordpress CMS.

Pros

Localise ticked all the boxes, especially with the human translation offering and the WP integration.

Cons

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.

Quick Site Translations - Little Technical Heavy Lifting

2019-08-16

Pros

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.

Cons

Depending on how quickly the JS loads, it might be noticeable to the user that we're swapping around content.

Jussi Leino

Great tool to localize your websites

2019-11-15

We needed to localize several webapps across multiple teams in very short time frame. We could not have achieved the results without this tool.

Pros

LocalizeJs (LJS) was very easy and fast to set-up and start showing results in target language.

Cons

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.

Hi Andy!

Thank you for taking the time to leave your review! It sounds like you might not be utilizing Localize to its full potential. Localize works great with dynamic sites! Check out this help doc to find some best practices using var tags! After implementing this, if you are using machine translations, you can also set your content to auto-translate. If you have any questions on other ways you might be able to improve your experience, please let us know! :)

Simple translation services

2019-11-14

Instead of waiting for major content updates, we can get translations almost instantly.

Pros

It's very easy to keep translations up-to-date on our website and we don't need to have multiple copies of each page to store translated content.

Cons

The service isn't fully automated, so we still have to manually approve phrases for translation every few days.

Great company, recommend their services. Does exactly what we need!

Pros

Users browsing in another country will automatically see the correct translation for them which is great.

Cons

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.
