Lokalise is an app localization platform. Created by a small company in Riga, it sells to developers first.
- Web-based project management suite
- JS-based web editor with TM, QA, TB and integrated MT
- Over-the-air updates. Proxy-like functionality for mobile apps translation that allows in-Context UI editing
- API and command line tool for integrations
- Reporting dashboard
- Screenshot uploading and string matching
- A set of connectors including IFFT
- Mobile application developers
Lokalise differentiates from other TMS via a strong visual localization functionality and ability to integrate into developer tools. On the other hand, it lacks the complexity of workflow customization needed for supply chain automation, and thus using it as the main tool in multi-step, multi-vendor workflows typical of the localization industry might prove challenging.
Founded by Nick Ustinov and Petr Antropov. In 2018, 11 people worked in the Lokalise team, including 7 developers. As of 2020, they have 50 employees and more than 1500s customers including Revolut, Tidal, Delivery Hero, BASF, Daimler, Tesco, HP, Yelp, Virgin Mobile, Johnson & Johnson, BAYER, etc. Later in 2020, the company announced a USD 6M in Series A funding.
The main office is based in Latvia, Riga.
Lokalise standard pricing is based on platform users (seats), number of translated units (strings) and the size of the userbase of the translated application (monthly active users).
A basic plan starts at USD 90 a month. Enterprise pricing is an extra tier, subject to negotiations.
