Simple, effective and practical

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.

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.

We eventually decided to switch to another platform with lower price and better functionality.

A good TMS system with lots of potencial

Transifex has helped us scale our localization process efficiently. It offers all the basics of a TMS system and has a lot of potentials. I would suggest working on your customer's pain point more efficiently to increase customer success.

Excellent translation experience

I've used this service mostly as a translator, who wanted to add my own language to an existing translation project. Can't attest as a project owner...

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.

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.

Pros

Transifex is ok: not the best and not the worst software for translations. Some features are overly complicated to use, but overall it is ok.

Cons

Pricing, value for the money and not being able to find strings easily/copy translations between projects.

Pros

Great translation experience as a translator, it's really fun to see how translation work quickly propagates into a running product and improves users' experience. Glossaries, translation history, discussion forums, machine translation, and great UX - provide all the support needed in order to properly translate a project.

Cons

A global "search and replace" feature could be nice.
