Context is crucial for software localization as it allows translators to understand the content in its proper context and thus produce an accurate translation. Without context, a software translation can be inaccurate and lead to user confusion or errors. In some cases, the context can completely change the meaning of what is being translated, so it is essential to have a good understanding of the text's context before starting the localization process.
Creating your custom i18n solution? Don't.
When we did a market analysis in Tolgee, we asked many companies how they solved localization in their project. We asked them what's their i18n tooling. Surprisingly a lot of companies maintain their custom solution. I've also set up f5bot to e-mail me when the i18n keyword appears in posts or comments on Reddit. Again, a lot of people share their custom i18n libraries or solutions. In this article, I want to explain why I recommend against creating your custom solution and show what challenges you will face when you decide to do so.

Software Localization & Machine Translation: Which Provider?
Machine translation (MT) is the process of using artificial intelligence to automatically translate text from one language to another without human involvement. Over time, from its beginnings in the 1950s, machine translation changed the translation industry. You probably have at least some little experience with machine translations as Google Translate and similar online translator tools have been available around the web for quite some time.
