games development companies that need to frequently push updates into the running game in multiple languages.
There’re integrations with Unity, Unreal, Wwise, JIRA, MemoQ, Memsource, and others.
For import, LocDirect supports only comma-separated values files.
For export, with the build generators, it’s possible to generate export files using a built-in script language, which means that basically any text-based format can be exported. (It’s not a drop-down list where the user selects an export format. Instead, it’s a custom script that is being created to export the texts according to the needs of the customer).
