Pros

Our experience with Phrase has been an outstanding one, and we have recommended Phrase as an integral part of our Agile DevOps tooling for apps that have localization needs.
On top of this, I like how the UI looks. It's very competent yet not distracting so you can focus on a task at hand.
I'm really happy that we dedicated time to integrate as the investment paid off big time.

Pros

The customer service is excellent because they even provide you the opportunity to have a call with them in which they will guide you on how to use the software.
What's great about Lokalise is that they provide both outstanding SaaS and great translation service, which creates a frictionless workflow that we need to keep ever changing content translated.
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

Depending on their validity, the publication occurs almost immediately or several times a week depending on how the developers set it up. For me, it all works on the principle of "fire and forget.
Careless implementation of website translations.
Searching keys or string content is not always returning proper results. Machine translations sometimes deletes spaces (mostly after placeholders) resulting in errors.

Cons

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).
It is hard to get an overview about all the keys in use. Sometimes, depending on the QA state, it is difficult to find a specific key.
Plan limitation for users in team can sometime be too restrictive if you ave to manage different users per project.

Comprehensive Solution for a Translation Workflow

Reviewed 4 years ago

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. We can say from integrating this solution with our current web app, that we were astounded by the simplicity the tool connects to the repository, get's the most current keys the developers added and easily pushes changes back to the repository. From a developers perspective this is a dream to use. The translation tools are also on par with the rest, with multiple views for editing, suggestions from major translation software (e.g. Google Translate) and placeholders support. The design is also nice and friendly and well thought out, allowing for easy understanding without needing to read documentation.

Cons

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

Makes localizing and app painless,The software might not be 100% perfect, but when concerns arise their support team is always there to help and resolve them

Pros

Makes it easy and fast for us to translate new strings for our application. Gives us access to professional translators without the hassle to export / reimport the strings in different formats like i'v done in the past (Excel sheets). Their support is very responsive and comprehensive

So easy, even at extreme scale

Reviewed 3 years ago

Previously, localization was a situation in which our teams would constantly step on each others toes, trying to use Google Sheets to coordinate with each other and developers. It just never worked well and we wasted so much time on it until we found Lokalise. Now, translators can see what text is being edited in real time and work together to ensure the most correct translations.

Pros

Lokalise makes localization SO easy, even when working with extremely large teams. 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. The duplicate editor has allowed us to drastically cut down on translation time. Finally, the latest feature we found and love is translation memory which allows us to translate a common word or phrase once and then Lokalise can automatically suggest it in the future.

Cons

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

Really good translation tool !

Reviewed 5 years ago
Pros

It's a easy to use tool with a friendly design; Support is good and reactive. Must have to handle translation on multi platforms.

Cons

While lokalise's improving a lot, there's still some cases to handle, like android menu items or strings using in customs views;

Game Changer

Reviewed 4 years ago

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

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.

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.

Awesome software that greatly eases our L10n workflow

Reviewed 4 years ago

Awesome. The team is quick to react and have a killer product

Pros

- The fact that we have can have different keys that are differ based on the platform - We can add screenshots [with automatic OCR!] to add more context to our translations

Cons

They don't have support for variable-width strings (an iOS/macOS feature) [yet?], this isn't a life changing feature per se, but would be nice

Great translation software for our site

Reviewed 3 years ago

It opened up our horizons to translating our site into more languages and more easily. What a relief. I highly recommend this product.

Pros

We work with volunteers across the globe. They are able to easily learn and use this software to translate what they can and leave the hard pages, TOS etc for us to farm out via Lokalise and a couple of days later they are done. The translation suggestions shown from Google et alia by phrase are super helpful too.

Cons

Some of the HTML goop doesn't always transition over to the translation smoothly but generally it's fine.
