    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    I love it. it makes my life as developer way easier. We have products using it and products not using it yet, and the ones without transifex are always a pain to maintain translations. We have plans to move all our products to it. Also, the features they provide if you want to hire third-party translators are quite useful.

    Pros

    Using transifex improves a lot developer experience as we don't have to deal with it on the code, and we are able to focus on building other features instead.
    It's quite easy to configure and has a very useful CLI, which is super helpful since we can also easily integrate in our CI/CD pipeline.
    The documentation is also very well built.

    Cons

    It would be nice to fetch the translation files from transifex directly instead of having them all hosted in our applications. I believe this will be possible with transifex native, but I've applied to get a view on it, and am still waiting for a response since 2 months already.
