Pros: First and foremost, the team are extremely communicative and helpful. Every question we asked was answered in minutes and they gave us fantastic and friendly assistance to get us onboarded swiftly. 100% awesome.

The QA feature found literally thousands of errors throughout our translations - we had missed these for *years* using our previous tool.

We export our translations for use in an iOS and Android app - there are variable placeholders in several files and Lokalise makes it super simple to define these so they are exported to the correct format for the target platform; no need to write scripts to convert from iOS "%@" to Android "%s" etc...

Additionally, we love the platform-specific features; being able to specifically disable a key for export on iOS or Android, or change the name of the key when exported, so that it can match that platform's conventions.

The pricing model is sensible, you are charged on translation keys and not penalised for adding new languages. Again, this is way better than other solutions on the market.

When importing translations, Lokalise is intelligent and recognises the language.

All the modern (and obscure) localisation formats that we needed were available.

The web interface is intuitive and easy to learn, you can tab across navigate quickly.

Cons: Nothing really, this has been a real upgrade in process and quality for us.

Overall: We've been able to implement clear, simple processes and improve the quality of the translation and localisation of our apps and websites.

Pros: Lokalise has completely transformed how we translate our apps.

We don't have to struggle with zip files flying around via email and are able to quickly and efficiently produce new builds for review.

Once we had fixed the main problem, we were able to use Lokalise to completely automate our translations process using web hooks. When translations are Reviewed by our provider, we pull these into Bitbucket, generate a new build and run UI tests to generate Screenshots which are sent to the client within one hour. This process used to take at least 5 days per language.

Cons: Honestly, not much. the only problem we've had is with User Permissions, users report not being able to see Languages but it's always because we haven't updated their permissions.

Overall: Lokalise has completely removed the headache of managing strings across all our apps and it has reduced the need for constant reviews and re-working of translations.

Pros: Translators who work for our agency love using Lokalise. UI is very easy to understand and the fact that the clients can add screenshots of where the translated text be visible in their app is a great help as it aids in understanding the context.

It is possible to see in real time the progress of the translation, which is very helpful for the project managers to see the translation progress. Customer service is very fast and questions are answered and resolved quickly.

Cons: Depending on the internet connection, it can be a bit slow sometimes, but it does not tend to distract the work.

Pros: Easy to filter, search and edit keys.

Automation of the localization process with translation providers.

Supporting iOS and Android localization files.

Cons: Screenshots and description are crucial for the right translation. Drag & drop for a screenshot and description editing would be easier without additional popups on the main project screen.

More flexible rights for members by sharing the payment method. Many of team should order translation by oneself but now it could be done only by members with an attached credit card.

Overall: We develop mobile apps for iOS and Android. We have several products and each of them has from 6 to 25 localisations. It is unreal to maintain all of these localisations by yourself and Localise solve this problem nicely.

Pros: There are many things to like about Lokalise. A few stand out:

* The UI is easy to understand, and helps a lot with quickly translating and reviewing a lot of content.

* Customer Support is truly amazing. A very responsive team and issues are resolved quickly.

* Integration with translation partners and machine learning helps to get started quickly with high-quality translations.

Cons: Getting started was a bit hard, especially integrating Lokalise into our build process. That's been almost a year though, so that might be easier now.

Small bugs pop up from time to time; one of those actually broke output. But these are usually resolved very quickly when Lokalise is informed of them.

Overall: Lokalise plays an integral part in our internationalisation and localisation strategy. Making it easy to localise our products helped us to get new business.

Pros: Lokalise is years far ahead from its competitors. It solves every problems we encounter today in mobile apps.

The way to assign specific platforms per translation, the possibility of having different keys per platform, universal placeholders, glossary, translations proposition based on Google Translate and translation memory. Also the API and fastlane actions are helping us improving our continuous intergation system!

Overall: Make our release process faster and more reliable. Make our translations more consistent on one platform and accros all platforms.

Pros: This is an incredibly flexible translation tool which provides a friendly UI for both translators and developers to interact with. Lokalise has translation memory, good plural handling, translation suggestions from the internet, and great platform support for many formats.

We were having some issues getting our files to import and export properly, and I received excellent support and an improvement to their import/export to help meet out workflow.

They've got a fun visual design style too, which is a nice change from the other more bare-bones translation tools I've used before.

Overall: There's not much I dislike about it, though I suppose I'd make some of the buttons a little less washed out looking. I thought there were in a disabled state at first.

I'm sorry to hear you've found our UI not intuitive.

Would you please drop us a few hints in our in-web support chat at https://lokalise.co on where we could improve? We'll be happy to jump on a call with you as well if it's easier.

Let's put your feedback into a good use!

Pros: Lokalise is easy to use to share terms with various people involved in a project. It's a cloud system, so we didn't need to implement special software either. We use to manage our terms with Excel, so sharing terms with others were not so easy.

Cons: We put tags on each term but as the number of tags used in a project increases, it becomes difficult to find a specific tag from the list.

Overall: We had been using Excel to manage our terms, and it was quite difficult and in many aspects and time consuming. Since we changed to Lokalise, our term management, as well as translation tasks became much easier. I also appreciate their technical support (e-mail, chat) for their prompt replies.
