Great tool to localize your websites

Used Daily for 1-5 months

Review Source: Capterra

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:

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.

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! :)

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.

There's no reason to not support multiple languages now

Used Daily for 1-5 months

Review Source: Capterra

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.

Easy human translation for international wordpress website

Used Daily for 1-5 months
Reviewed on 2019/08/21
Review Source: Capterra

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.

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

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

Review Source: Capterra

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.

Website Localization with Ease

Used Daily for 1+ year
Reviewed on 2019/11/19
Review Source: Capterra

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!

Quick Site Translations - Little Technical Heavy Lifting

Used Monthly for 2+ years
Reviewed on 2019/08/16
Review Source: Capterra

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.

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!

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.
