info_outline About

Translate5 is a web-based, out-of-the-box translation management system maintained and overseen by MittagQI – Quality Informatics. translate5 integrates flexibly and can be used in MittagQIs translate5 cloud or on-premises. As per usual with open-source software, users of translate5 are allowed to manipulate and extend the translate5 software code depending on their own feature needs. In accordance with AGPLv3 and GPL3 licensing, users are required to feed new features and plug-ins back into the core product translate5. Users are also invited to discuss their technical interests with MittagQI, who can realize them within an attractively short time span.


Since 2021 the newly formed translate5 Consortium, comprised of 10 European Language Service Providers (LSPs), further accelerates translate5s development with fresh ideas, professional input, and continuous support. The Consortium is focused on translate5 as a comprehensive translation solution and considers it an attractive alternative for LSPs and companies.
