All texts and software translated with Lingohub

Used Daily for 1+ year
Reviewed on 2019/09/05
Review Source: Capterra

When translating all marketing and software texts through Lingohub, we benefit from the ease of use and the support by the software. Translation memory and machine translation help our in-house and external translators. Support from Lingohub answered to our requests and fixed any problems we encountered.

Pros

User-friendly interface for translation to multiple languages. Translators are supported by a translation memory and machine translation. The API allow uploading texts from 3rd party development systems and also HTML from webpages and downloading the result. Online software ensures that multiple translators can work in parallel. Support team helped us solve project-related questions.

Cons

A major upgrade to the LingoHub software in 2019 led to slower response times earlier this year. Fixed by now (September 2019).

Easy to use, good to implement and the Lingohub team supports us greatly, whenever we had some special questions or requests. I can warmly recommend Lingohub to everyone, who works in a multi-language SaaS environment.

Pros

It makes my life as product manager very ease. I can create and edit translations and publish them as I need. That was not easy to handle before Lingohub. We also enjoy the possibility to add Machine Translation to have a language ready very fast and I can invite and manage the role of translators, if needed.

Cons

I didn't experience any negative aspects.

Could have been much better

Used Daily for 2+ years

I was happy when I finally switched the teams and didn't have to use it anymore.

Pros

- At least it has API access so we don't have to work too much on the buggy UI

Cons

- Bugs in UI - plenty and with each visual update we could see new/more.
- API for automation could be better
- Lack of visualization for whitespaces
- doesn't apparently care about non-breaking vs soft spaces (which is crucial for french language)
- The text editor is tiny, doesn't allow to visualize where linebreaks where put easily (sometimes word wrapping can trick you).
- On numerous occasions tricks like `out of service` and `laggy experience` that eventually was turned into `planned maintenance` that was never announced. I understand someone can have technical issues but trying to lie to your customers about it is low. It was not on one occasion the service was out and we didn't get any prior information about those so called `planned maintanances`
- The history view is not really that helpful - no real text diffing available to review changes.

Response from LingoHub

Hi Adrian, first of all: Thank you for taking the time to review LingoHub. We are really keen to learn from our customers and keep improving our software solution.

To address some of your bullet points:
I'm really sorry to hear that the UI was causing some issues during your usage.

Actually, LingoHub switched to a new interface and technology a while ago addressing your mentioned topics.

I'm also sorry for the miscommunication regarding the planned maintenance. Could you please provide me some further details on when that occurred?

This would really help me figuring out what happened.

Overall, I can ensure you that our customers and their feedback is really important for us to improve our solution.

And maybe you might want to give LingoHub another try (especially the new UI might resolve some of the mentioned topics).

Best, Thomas from LingoHub

Pros

It's really easy to get started using LingoHub. You can manually upload files or even connect it with repositories directly. Translation management got a lot easier with it.

Cons

It would be great if it supports uploading screenshots to give context to translations - this functionality is not yet available.

I absolutely love this software, and use it on a daily basis since over 2 years now.
It allowed our company to shape the workflow of our translations in an advanced way, and saved us so much time. Would recommend to everyone!

Pros

I really like how simple the UI is to use, but also the fact that it includes advance functionality should you need it for your projects.
One cool feature is the multieditor, that allows you to see how a specific key has been translated in other languages. I can get on-the-fly inspiration from my spanish colleagues this way, since the language is closely related to mine :) and they can do the same.

Cons

I wish that the comment/conversation section for each key would be highlighted more in some way

Quick and easy to deploy, works with lots of our systems with little hurdles. Fantastic support and interaction with the team.
Some rough edges and things I deal with because the platform has responsive support and is cheaper than the system we intended to get: Transifix.
The problem is that as we demand more and more from the platform, and as our price gets higher due to our usage, the benefits of LingoHub over Transifix, while the rough edges become more pronounced.

Fantastic for smaller teams, but as we become enterprise grade and are more demanding of the system, the chance of us switching platforms has increased.

Pros

- Fantastic support
- strong feature set
- Low priced
-wide array of use cases covered

Cons

- Buggy UI
- some use cases that are realized when you dig deeper in to the functionality are not covered. Overall feels like it is missing the polish it should have. This can be features like bulk actions, or workflow adjustments.
- If something is not supported, the system is too rigid.
- setup can get difficult if the system you have doesn't well fit the buckets of code wise
- can not handle documents

Hi Baru,

Just what we needed

Used Daily for 1+ year

Review Source: Capterra

We were managing jsons of translations, and whenever we needed a non-technical translator to translate everything or make changes, we gave them the jsons. This was error prone, and not fun at all. LingoHub was just the right tool to satisfy both the translators and developers.

Pros

How well it fit our needs, and how easy it was to get up and running. More or less just specifying a GitHub repo, and then all the translations were there to work with. The interface is super nice. We have no complaints from translators.

Cons

Don't really have any real cons to provide. Perhaps the different states a translation can have is a bit overkill for us. We move very fast, so the state of different translations is a mess, and would be nice to just leave out - for our purposes. But it works anyway.

Used Daily for 6-12 months

Pros

Hotkeys are amazing feature while editing a huge list of entries. Integration with GitHub is very useful. Also convenient thing is automatic suggestions by existing translations database and automatic translations via DeepL. It's very handy when you add a new locale and after some time thousands of keys are automatically translated with quite good quality and translators need to make only some corrections.

Cons

There are some UX issues. For example long keys names are overlapped by user menu or when you edit the last entry in the list the pop-up menu is overlapped. I've send this issues into the support and hope it will be fixed soon.

LingoHub is a clear, functional, highly usable software that, quite frankly, improves my overall working experience and day-to-day workflow. As a translator/editor I need my approach to be simple and direct. LingoHub provides just that.

Cons

Nothing that I can think of. In my two year daily usage, I've experienced exactly one outage, that was handled with comendable swiftness. Maybe the "select all" function could lose the dropdown feature and just have a ticker box.

It's quite helpful and allows me to do things where I normally would need to involve engineering.

Pros

As a product manager, everything I can do without engineering is a good thing. Especially when it comes to copy, which is a big part of design and thus of product. Being able to quickly change copy which is confusing to users is really great. Same thing is true for folks working in support. Also, when we ship new features, it's great that I can easily do the translations and adjust links quickly without the need to involve engineering.

Cons

UI could be a bit better, some things are quite hided (for example how to navigate back to the dashboard to create a PR). Same thing is true for some features (like pulling new data from the repo). But the support is always quick with responses and helpful. What we have not used yet is the collaboration feature on transaltions as we are working mostly in Slack so an integration would be helpful here.

We are constantly in development. With Lingohub, we have a nice workflow to optimize all the added labels. so I really like the usability

Pros

We offer a project management solution in multiply languages. With Lingohub you can easily control all the labels we have in our application.
If we change a label you can do it easily for other countries as well. SO easy!

Cons

Sometimes is hard to find a specific label. We added a developer view, so we can see the key.
And if you copy a label in CAPITAL words, then it will not find the label in Lingohub.
It will be nice if it's not Capital sensitive

LingoHub Review

Used Monthly for 2+ years

Review Source: Capterra

For simple Apps it's good but working with iOS and Android at the same time or dealing with plurals require workarounds.
We are using LingoHub since a long time. Back then there weren't a lot of alternatives and all in all it's a solid platform. Nowadays there are other alternatives though that are quite innovative so I think LingoHub will need to release new features soon. Overall there weren't a lot of improvements during the time we've been using it.

Pros

- Setup is fairly easy and our clients are mostly able to handle the translations on their own without a lot of guidance.
- Being able to connect repositories makes updating the translations easier
- Overview of status of the translations is fairly good, you can clearly see what still needs to be translated
- Customer support was always super quick to respond and helped with a capable support

Cons

- Missing/insufficient support for pluralisation
- Missing/insufficient support for projects that are used between iOS and Android, projects can't really be used for both platforms at the same time
- UI is partly very confusing and some things are very hard to find
- Missing reference to screens. It's hard for the client to properly grasp the context of a translation just judging by the key. Would be nice if it could somehow be linked to actual designs
- Search for translations/keys could be improved

Over 2+ your platform saved us a lot of time and frustration. Thank you.

Pros

The most amazing feature is that we can combine few different translation technologies from different parts of the system (in our particular case - Angular that uses JSON files and Django, that uses PO files) into one platform and it to translate to our colleagues in different countries. They do not need to worry about different editors or software to use to translate.

Uploading new resource files is easy, but choosing the language that is in the file is a nightmare - a huge dropdown list that loads very slowly

Pros

It was really easy to implement a translation workflow into an existing product. We set the translation files up in our frontend and synced everything with our git repository. The client had no problems to add translations on their own and to publishing changes was also no problem for the client with LingoHub.

Cons

The only thing we had a little trouble with, was the push/pull to master naming convention in the LingoHub backend. But this could be solved with a tooltip or instructions. Apart from that everything worked like a charm.
