Transifex vs Lokalise: What are the differences?

Developers describe Transifex as "GitHub for Translation". Transifex is a cloud-based localization platform built to help you manage the translation and localization of your app, website, video subtitles, and more. It acts as a repository for your content (think GitHub for translation) and includes tools for developers to get that content into Transifex automatically. Transifex also provides translators a web interface to submit translations. On the other hand, Lokalise is detailed as "The easiest way to translate web and mobile apps". It is a translation management system, which is designed to make the process of localization faster and easier. Our platform reduces manual work and routine tasks that appear while translating web and mobile apps, games, and other software.

Transifex and Lokalise belong to "Translation Service" category of the tech stack.

Some of the features offered by Transifex are:

  • Command-line tool: A Git-like command line tool that lets developers manage translations within a project without an elaborate UI system. They can use the command-line client to create new resources, map locale files to translations, and synchronize their Transifex project with local files and vice versa
  • Order translations: Get professional-quality translations in 33 languages
  • Reports: See a list of users who have contributed to your projects along with the number of new and edited words each one has translated

On the other hand, Lokalise provides the following key features:

  • Translate your localization files (.xml, .strings, .json, .xliff, etc)
  • Collaborate and manage all your software localization projects in one platform
  • Integrate translation into the development and deployment process
