A great platform for your translation needs

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. We were using complex translations that includes right to left writing scripts and even languages that are quite tricky to translate including arabic, pashto, urdu, kurmanji and sourani, most of these language are near extinct and Transifex did handle these perfectly on our platforms.

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.

Reasons for Choosing Transifex

It was the only product at that time that can provide seamless translations and integrations, and the best one to respond to my usecases.

A great UI but requires some more work

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.

A powerful must have tool for a localization team

Happy to work with this tool.

Pros

Great support. Fantastic TM engine. 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.

Too slow for daily use

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

Pros

Transifex has most features of other platforms like Phrase, Smartling, Lozalize, and Crowdin. It's interface is nice to look at. But boy is it SLOW. Clicking on something means I can go get my coffee and come back. This is true of the entire software, and it's maddening on every level. I try to use their command line tools so I don't have to use the interface, but even that is slow if you have a lot of files to work with. For instance, I push/pull source updates and translations using the CLI and it takes FOREVER.

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.

Reasons for Choosing Transifex

Implemented this for a client request but regret it.

Transifex multiplies our impact

Transifex has been responsive to our technical asks, supportive of our translator community, and reliable in its uptime and availability, not blocking our development flow (which has been an issue with other vendors). Top marks across the board. It's easy to harp on stuff that doesn't work, but Transifex has barely even toed that line. Props to your team on providing infrastructure that Just Works.

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.
