Comments: I've been using the platform as a freelance translator for a year now, and now I can say it's a great tool to aid a translator.
There are some minor drawbacks in the user interface (e. g. you can't remap the shortcuts or need to confirm each repetition manually), but they don't bother the user much. Overall a 5-star experience.

Pros: Easy to use, ensures quality and consistency, constant support.

Cons: I wish it was more customizable.

Overall: I have been using this software for over a year as a freelance translator and it has greatly boosted my productivity. It ensures consistency and quality, especially for bigger projects with several translators working together. The interface is similar to other CAT tools, so there's virtually no learning curve. I thoroughly recommend it!

Pros: Ease use, functionality, collaboration due to cloud technology

Cons: Like any cloud-based service, there is time spent waiting on data to save to the server.

Overall: I use this tool as a freelance translator and absolutely love it. It is very easy to use with simple functionality, yet with all of the bells & whistles I would expect from a CAT tool. The best part: multiple translators can work on an urgent project without compromising consistency -- because it is cloud based, content from multiple translators working simultaneously on a project syncs automatically. The result is not only increased productivity, but also to perfect consistency.

Pros: Cloud based, quick and easy to use, implementation of terminology

Cons: Only compatible with Windows, not with Mac.

Overall: I am using the Text United App since 2010 and have translated about half a million words with it. This is a very good software, which simplifies the translation of complex documents. The client has always access to the data while it is being processed. I never experienced a breakdown or loss of data. Unlike Across, there is no issue sending and synchronising files as I am already working on cloud based files.

Cons: Having to confirm each segment manually

Overall: Great tool and great team. I have been working for years as a translator for this agency and I am very happy with our collaboration. For me, this software is better than Trados. The QA tool is very useful and therefore, you can be sure your translation will be consistent. Very useful on large projects.

Pros: Free, powerful, stable and light.

Cons: Spellchecking works but needs to be improved (to allow work not only in active segment).

Overall: I work as freelance translator and use the app rather regularly since 2015. The workflow is the same as in the most of known CAT tools. It is powerful, stable, light and customizable. Additional invoicing functions allow to control the balance. And the most important for translators - it is free. Well done!

Pros: Simple to handle, good terminology management, - and the client can see the progress (if wished) and give terminology advice if needed.

Cons: No cons available, as it is state of the art.

Overall: I am working with this Software and this translation agency already for several years and as a freelance translator working with a lot of other tools too, I have to say their tool is the best I found up to date. It is frequently updated, one does not have to load to the PC a lot of volume, as everything is stored in their server, there is a bright project management and clients always get the best quality feasible. The best translation agency I met in 35+ years. The software is intuitive and does have all the features a translator - as well as a client - can wish to have.

Pros: - Easy to use
- Beautiful interface
- Intelligent word memory/suggestions

Overall: In my brief time using Text United, I can honestly say that it is a joy to use. It is simple enough for our team of volunteers, but has powerful features that make implementing translations easy. The translation memory feature is the best example of this, and saves an uncountable number of hours by automatically completing words that have been translated before. The ability to collaborate on a project and work together is also incredibly efficient and allows us to serve our website to new demographics we could not reach before.

I don't know how we ever did translation and localization before Text United, and we are so incredibly thankful that such a product exists!

Pros: 1. Ability to integrate it with our GitHub repository - our developers loved it!
2. Continuous translation - we do not need to worry about new translations
3. Translation memory - saves us a lot of money
4. Customer service - all guys there are super nice and helpful

Cons: User interface could get slightly improved

Overall: We were looking for a way to quickly translate our application into 4 different languages. At the beginning we were looking for translation agencies, but it was a hassle. It was very hard to find a good one and a communication with them wasn't so good neither.

With TextUnited we were able to quickly integrate out GitHub repository and translation started almost immediately. They scanned our languages files, extracted phrases for translation and we've got everything ready after few days. Currently, thanks to the continuous translation, we do not need to worry about translations at all. TextUnited checks for new phrases automatically and sends us ready translations. Along with that it saves us a lot of money thanks to the translation memory - we do not need to pay for phrases that has been already translated.
