Website Localization with Ease

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. We have an introductory assessment that is only periodically revisited, so the phrases were quickly moved to the archive and therefore did not show as immediately translated upon the next identification. Disabling the automatic archiving resolved this for us.

Response from Localize

Hi Britt! We typically set our default setting for the most popular use cases, though we do have great pride in the versatility of our product. I'm so glad that you and your team were able customize Localize to your specific needs. Please don't hesitate to reach out if you need anything! Jamie

Good for static sites

Pros

Good for static website translation, allows us to work in 3 languages.

Cons

Not great for changing platforms or non-static sites. Best for static marketing sites.

Response from Localize

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! :) https://help.localizejs.com/docs/setup-guide https://help.localizejs.com/docs/labels#section-auto-approve Jamie

Easy to use translation platform

Pros

Translations are implemented right away on our webpage after they have been proofread from our end. For a translator, proofreading is very easy and you can approve a machine-generated translation or improve it with a simple click. Customer support is doing a great job in educating us on how to best use the platform and navigate through it to have the best experience for our specific needs.

Cons

I would like to be able to simultaneously see where the line I am translating is located on our webpage. The context is important for the correct translation, so seeing where the word is located on our webpage will be very useful.

Great tool to localize your websites

We needed to localize several webapps across multiple teams in very short time frame. We could not have achieved the results without this tool. The translators are happy to use the tool and required minimum guidance. Developers adapted to the new tool quickly.

Pros

LocalizeJs (LJS) was very easy and fast to set-up and start showing results in target language. All the phrases/strings from your apps go to the same tool and are easy to see and manage. The tech support/help is very responsive and helpful to deal with all kinds of problems you might have.

Cons

Since LJS pushes all the strings from your Webapps to their tool, it is little bit tedious to find all the data that must not be send to the tool, e.g. confidential user information etc. 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. The tool is not geared towards deployment flow, where you have DEV, QA, Staging and Production environments and you have to move phrases/strings between different environments.

Response from Localize

Thanks for you feedback, Jussi! It's great that you and your team were able to accomplish so much in a short time frame, thank you for choosing us! If you visit the following link you'll see how Localize actually does support different environments: https://help.localizejs.com/docs/multi-site-deployment-environment I would also like to encourage you to shoot us an email (support@localizejs.com) anytime you think of an improvement we can make. User feedback is so incredibly valuable to us. Jamie

There's no reason to not support multiple languages now

We have interviewed people in their native languages for blog posts. 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. We can translate the most important parts of our website as needed based on our site data such as which country people are accessing it from. It's demand-driven and very cost-effective.

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. We've found Localize to be really flexible in terms of how we integrate with our website and how we use it amongst our staff.

Cons

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

Response from Localize

Thank you for this awesome review, we appreciate you taking the time to help us spread the word about Localize!

Easy human translation for international wordpress website

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

Pros

We needed to professionally translate our microsite into multiple languages to suit our global audience. Localise ticked all the boxes, especially with the human translation offering and the WP integration.

Cons

he lingo used. 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. There is also the added complication of having to buy credits too, but thats no biggy. I logged a couple tickets in the 'translate my website via a human' process in the end. It shouldn't be this jagged.

Response from Localize

Thanks for the awesome review, Andrew! I will surely pass on your feedback!

excellent tool for locating websites and finding new markets

It is a very important tool for the growth of my business.

Pros

very easy and practical to use, smart and elegant interface, good choice of working languages. Quick tool to find apps on the web.

Cons

it loses integration speed on non-static platforms or sites and has no integration flow when I need to move phrases and strings between different environments like DEV and QA.

Response from Localize

Thanks you for your feedback. Don't hesitate to reach out to your account manager if we can be of service!

Simple and Powerful

Localize is exactly what you would hope to experience from a company—powerful services, easy to set up, and up-and-running quickly. Saved an enormous amount of time and potential stress with their solution.

Pros

I love how quickly you can get Localize up and running. I was able to get it implemented on a client's site within minutes. Although I initially felt overwhelmed about this client request, Localize solved my problem with their amazing solution.

Cons

Nothing—wish we had found the service sooner.

Response from Localize

Hey Bryan! Thanks for the review. Reducing the stress around localization is the name of the game! So glad you found us!

Simple translation services

Localization of our website is much faster and less expensive than contracting with most translation services. 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.

Response from Localize

Hey Josh! You actually can automate your ENTIRE workflow! We truly pride our product on being extremely versatile! Our default settings are chosen to match the most popular use case.

Appreciative

Pros

I really like the easy of use to translate and the admin platform. They've made tremendous updates during the years I've used the program and appreciate how on top of things their customer service team is

Cons

Honestly, not too many cons. Sometimes the translations aren't quite right and I'd love to have more languages added without additional costs, but that'd be going above and beyond.

Response from Localize

Thanks for your feedback! Feel free to reach out if you can help you with additional languages or improving translation quality.

Quick Site Translations - Little Technical Heavy Lifting

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

While there's little technical implementation, it means there's some sacrifices you have to make from a consumer experience standpoint. More specifically, because this is a java script solution, the page does render as it would normally for a quick moment and then the translations start appearing. Depending on how quickly the JS loads, it might be noticeable to the user that we're swapping around content.

Fastest way to translate your site / app in multiple countries at once

Fantastic customer service. Beautiful product. Never had technical issues.

Pros

Easy to navigate interface. You just start using it and you get it, no classes needed. Every translator I used never had a problem.

Cons

Price can get steep as your needs increase.

Localize works for us!

Pros

We've been using Localize since 2015. Localize has provided us with easy to manage website translations. We're able to provide access to our internal translators who log in and see the wording required for translation. It's very simple and runs in the background. New words are automatically uploaded into Localize

Cons

Initially it took a while to translate due to the amount of words but this was as expected and over time this has become easier. It requires a developer to integrate but this was expected. Tagging phrases that didn't need translating took a while.

Response from Localize

Thank you for continuing to choose us year after year, we appreciate you! I also wanted to point out this help doc below that might be able to save you some time approving phrases by blocking the ones you dont want from ever coming in! :) https://help.localizejs.com/docs/setup-guide#section-attribute-notranslate-or-translateno

Fantastically easy to use, with brilliant support

Pros

The software is easy to deploy, and language switching is speedy and effortless. The support team are also incredible - talented, fast, and know what they're doing! I was really surprised at how much customisability there was, so that we can stop phrases being digested at any time, as well as selecting what we would like translated (and into what language) and what we would prefer to leave as-is. The language editing interfaces are fast and functional, whether you want to edit translations in-situ or in a list. It's also really handy that automatic translation is an option, to get things rolled out fast!

Cons

I didn't like that I kept mistyping the web address. I.e. I don't have much to complain about!

Easy to setup, easy to use and translates with a high accuracy.

Pros

The API and documentation is very easy to use. We were able to get it set up quickly. Translations are pretty accurate and we are able to have people go in and update strings with no problems.

Cons

When you need to expand to offer more languages the pricing can get pretty expensive.

Hi Blake! Thank you for the amazing review, I am so glad that you were able to get setup not only quickly, but EFFICIENTLY as well. That's great! Please let us know if you need anything, or have any questions! Jamie

Pros

As a developer, you just write everything in English and the rest is handled by the marketing guys, which is pretty cool.

Cons

There are some smaller bugs now and then, but nothing too bad

Great product for a price

Pros

Easy SDK to integrate into your frontend App or backend server. The API itself is pretty easy to use and the documentation has plenty of examples to integrate into your product.

Cons

The starter plans are reasonable if you want to translate into a few languages. That works if you're only focused on launching in a few markets. It gets a little pricey if you want to translate into all major languages. But if your product has reached that scale you should be able to afford this service which will save you the overhead of hiring translators and administrators to keep track of updating new messages.

Hi Shashank! Im thrilled to hear that you found our developer tools and documentation clear and easy, that is always the goal! Thank you for your awesome review! :)

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

Pros

Localize is super easy to set up. 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.
