Pros: The user friendly Web-UI offers a variety of nice features that are mostly self-explaning. All common types of translations are supported. We use it for Android, iOS and partially Web and it works quite nice. A simple PULL via CLI (Command Line Interface), and you are set. Imports via Excel, XML, localizable.string and many more formats included. Plurals are supported as well. The support is awesome. If you have a question, usually you get answers at the same day. Great! I recommend PhraseApp if you would develop a multi-lingual app.

Cons: The support of iOS and Android in the same project is a little bit tricky. You must work with tags, that are not importable. To offer context to the translators is a hard part (use comments, screenshots - but you should upload it manually. A possibility via API is given, but we didn't made the effort to implement our own logic for that). When an error happened at import, it is very difficult to revert the last change. The changes are tagged, but it isn't intuitive to me and my team how to revert. In large teams PhraseApp is pricy. We use the 50 Users-Package.

Pros: As UX Writer in our company, I am using PhraseApp daily to change translations, fill in new ones and keep a look on changes that happen in the different projects. I love the simple and easy-to-understand interface, which enables everyone to immediately start using this tool. The search is really good to find all text resources containing a certain word, in order to adapt them for example. I always directly see if a wording has been changed and needs my verification. I also really appreciate all the little helpful features, like for example marking a wording change as minimal, so translators of other languages know they don't have to recheck their translations of this text.

Cons: It would be great if it was easier to add screenshots/images to the different text resources, so the writers know better where in the product the text will be and what the context is.

Pros: We've used Phraseapp for more than two years now, and we are very happy with it. It is very easy to use so that new translators do not need to be trained, they can simply start translating. With the smart integration of asking for the verification of translations, translators can proof-read each others' translations without missing anything. It also allows you to export/import which makes it possible to search and replace certain phrases easily if needed. Phraseapp is a great tool to translate extensive projects into several languages and to easily update those languages.

Time saving and very easy to use!

Pros: I use PhraseApp every day as I'm a translator for my team and coordinate international translations pour dynamic contents. I highly recommend PhraseApp for its : - modern look - layout, I can easily find what I need - very fast loading time - great features - user accounts with the possibility to set different access rights for all the different members of the project.

Cons: I would have liked a little assistant at the beginning telling me where to click to have x or y feature. I discovered great functions of this tool on my own after couple weeks only.

Pros: - Flexible rights and roles management supports our needs to coordinate several projects and interconnect via suggest-function common terms. - Many export formats fit to different project setups. Especially Excel-exports/uploads enables to integrate business stakeholders without giving access / special training to Phraseapp directly. - Support is very helpful and incredibly fast but sometimes the chat-popup are annoying / can not be closed permanently - Easy stakeholder involvement due to easy and clear UI and great export features. - Process speed is highly increased, reduced costs due to Phraseapp becoming more and more the only solution

Cons: - Would wish bulk export/upload of several locales. Business side uses Excel/csv a lot, here each language needs to be exported individually.

Excellent for keeping everything and everyone in one place!

Pros: - Communication features: you can tag people from the team in the comments; comments to the strings are visible for all the team members and stored at one place. - Context tab and briefing: at any time a full brief to the job can be accessed and every string has a separate field for screenshot and descriptions. - History tab: all the versions of the text are stored in a separate tab and can be restored at any time. - Translation memory, that works across all the projects. - Works with different types of content: you can "feed" it strings, apps and web content, e-mails, social media publications, etc. - Character count and character limit feature. - Newsletter with the product updates and guides.

Cons: - It seems you can search for stuff only within one project/platform, not across all the projects. - Extremely difficult to navigate the website on mobile devices, as it's not adapted for mobile use.

Pros: Once we started using PhraseApp , translating to several languages became very easy. Before it was a big burden on our developers, with lots of iterations to get just the right translation - all wasting valuable time from the developers. Today, we don't need developers adding the translations, but anyone can do it. This way developers can focus on code and not translations. The site is very easy to use for non developers/ non technical people. It's saves us a lot of time and hassle. The customer service is also excellent - very helpful and responsive.

Pros: I really like the in-context editor, which helps us provide contextualised information, screens, comments, any possible info to help our translators. They have a very responsive team. This is like a very personalized translation tool. Very user friendly. Transition from transifex has not really been a problem for any of our team member.

Cons: One improvement could be being able to search a term in all projects- instead of visiting all the projects to find a string. If this already exists and I am unaware - I don't really know.

Pros: Translations can be managed pretty easily with the web frontend. It is easy to use and pretty self explanatory. The customer support is great and handles issues very professional. The response times are very good comparing to other services. If you want to integrate PhraseApp into software projects, you can use the API which is very helpful.

Cons: Managing many projects with a variety of translations could be better as it takes some time switching between projects and then selecting the corresponding locale. It is pretty cumbersome to add a new locale for each project. There is no bulk operation for this using he web frontend, it can only be done via API.

Pros: PhraseApp.com provides a solid solution for translating content on our website. The tool itself is well structured and easy to use. The additional features of the App have been great in supporting the core product. Since the App has a Trial Version, everybody should at least try it once. He had no problems so far, but I heard that the Support Team is really responsive.

Cons: The UI maybe could indeed get a redesign, but I don't see a big issue in it overall. The current UI is perfectly useable and there are no barriers because of a bad UI.

Pros: Tagging, comments (with @ mentions), translation history, and visibility of translation status were all things that added value to the way we worked with translations. We found that it worked well with the front-end frameworks that we use, and using the API and available webhooks was very useful.

Cons: Basic operation is easy, but a lot of useful enhancements require a little digging. I didn't set up the initial integration, so I can't speak to how easy or hard that might have been.

Pros: PhraseApp really takes the headaches out of managing localized copy for large apps. Once set up, it is easy to use and is built with collaboration in mind. And it goes above and beyond by integrating with translation services. Lastly, its integration with GitHub is perfect for developers. Ease of use, collaboration, translation services, and GitHub integration is what makes PhraseApp a killer app.

Cons: PhraseApp took a while to set up properly. There was a little experimentation and digging through documentation before we established a workflow we were happy with.

Pros: Phare App ist very easy to use. It offers a good developer interface and even an Android Studio Plugin. The excellent customer support helps all roles, Developer, Admin and even the translators in the different regions around the world. Localization can now be easily integrated into our agile development because its so fast and easy.

Cons: Adding of screenshots to get the context of the localization could be improved. A merge function of two different Plattform Apps would be nice.
