Transifex Feature Reviews

A good TMS system with lots of potencial

2020-10-26

Transifex has helped us scale our localization process efficiently. It offers all the basics of a TMS system and has a lot of potentials. I would suggest working on your customer's pain point more efficiently to increase customer success.

Pros

Translation memory Search strings feature Possibility to connect to other vendor's API Integrations

Cons

Word limitations are a real problem because you constantly need to upgrade your subscription while growing your business.

Transifex review

2021-04-23

Our engineer likes the automation piece but from the translation perspective, it is not the best tool for sure, especially with the lack of TM priority list, lack of leveraging/reusing comments when needed...

Pros

it is available on the web so linguists don't have to install anything

Cons

Can be very slow sometimes, has very limited functionality for searching terms, no filtering options, no real TM management.

A great UI but requires some more work

2019-05-03

It's great in terms of freely available translation platform, might be a little rough in the edges but will certainly fulfill every standard requirement for a vast amount of projects, especially web platforms, this is definitely my go to platform when I need to establish a new open source project.

Pros

Well, it's definitely one of the best options around, the wide range of files supported, the very intuitive design, the fact that you can open as much open source projects as you like, the admin tools, everything is just working, pretty fast.

Cons

Lack of attention to small details, there are many loose ends, some small bugs that were not taken care of for the past few years, might need some improvement from the agile side, new features are pretty rare at least when you consider it from my workflow, all the interesting integration are pretty new, most other platforms had these kind of integrations for many years now, open source friendly yet not entirely open source, mobile interface is pretty bad, might need some additional care in terms of standard support.

Simple, effective and practical

2020-10-21

Also, the features they provide if you want to hire third-party translators are quite useful.

Pros

It's quite easy to configure and has a very useful CLI, which is super helpful since we can also easily integrate in our CI/CD pipeline.

Cons

It would be nice to fetch the translation files from transifex directly instead of having them all hosted in our applications. I believe this will be possible with transifex native, but I've applied to get a view on it, and am still waiting for a response since 2 months already.

A powerful must have tool for a localization team

2021-04-26

Happy to work with this tool.

Pros

Intuitive user interface. Slack integration.

Cons

The main thing I dislike is that any word is counted as many times as there are languages for its project, even if it's not translated into some of them. That seriously affects our word limit.

A great platform for your translation needs

2021-04-20

As discribed with the most thing i loved about the platform, the communication and live work between the team members, as the platform can let you know who is working on what to prevent duplication and track good progress, and it does it in a beautiful way, even team members that were non tech were able to understand the UI/UX what it was trying to tell them (although my team was not even English proficient)

Pros

What i liked the most about transifex is how it can seamlessly integrate with any of our platform for integration, where other platforms failed at.

Cons

The platform was sluggish beginning of 2015 now it's much seamless and fluid, really no cons in it so far, it's continuously improved.

Excellent translation experience

2016-11-08

I've used this service mostly as a translator, who wanted to add my own language to an existing translation project. Can't attest as a project owner...

Pros

Great translation experience as a translator, it's really fun to see how translation work quickly propagates into a running product and improves users' experience. Glossaries, translation history, discussion forums, machine translation, and great UX - provide all the support needed in order to properly translate a project.

Cons

A global "search and replace" feature could be nice.

Good collaboration tool for translating software UIs

2019-05-16

We use transifex to translate the user interface of the popular free video editor Shotcut.

Pros

I also very much like the integration with GItHub to automatically retrieve the changes.

Cons

I find the user interface for handling raised issues a confusing.

Powerful (but expensive) localization platform

2019-10-22

We have been using Transifex for almost a year and we are quite happy about it. We have the starter plan which is quite limited but other options were way over our budget.

Pros

The Memory Translation feature is very useful and makes translation a lot faster.

Cons

It doesn’t offer support for the new XCLOC format that Xcode exports. At the moment I was using it, it only offered support for XLIFF files.

Probably the best TMS

2020-11-02

Overall I have enjoyed and frankly depend on Transifex for smooth handling of all localizations for my applications.

Pros

Integrating with Transifex is an ease and the online tools are quite easily the best in its class.

Cons

Branch support seems a bit lacking overall. I would like some way to manage strings across branches without creating additional resources.

Good but gets expensive fast

2021-04-13

Pros

Very easy to set up and manage. Good UI. Good translation tool for non-technical translators.

Cons

The cost climb is very steep. It is becoming more cost-beneficial for our company to develop our own solution to manage translation than to use this product. We have stopped adding more of our product portfolio in to this system.

Solid team features!

2020-11-03

I would say very very positive. When we had a quality-issue with one of the external translators, the Transifex team helped us to solve it quickly and professionally. Very happy with that kind of service from a SaaS company!

Pros

We also really like how the translation database helps speed up your translations AND keep track of the usage of strings, so you can keep your terms consistent.

Cons

This is your best feature, guys, make it more prominent!

Too slow for daily use

2021-04-13

Disappointing. It's looks great and offers promise but the overall execution is not where it needs to be.

Pros

It's interface is nice to look at.

Cons

Slowness, lack of improvements. The customer support will answer you quickly but all they will tell you is that what you want is not possible and it's on the roadmap. I've been using their software for a number of years -- I guarantee you everything you want is on the horizon but you'll never reach it.

Transifex multiplies our impact

2021-04-13

Top marks across the board. It's easy to harp on stuff that doesn't work, but Transifex has barely even toed that line.

Pros

Transifex' mature command-line tools coupled with a robust web portal help Plex deliver a rich, localized experience for users across web, TV, and embedded platforms.

Cons

Better support and guidance for "weird" (eg, non-English) translation scenarios would be fantastic. In many of the cases where we're "asking" for help, it would be great to have been proactively provided with platform-compatible approaches.
