Localization used to be just so ineffective. The whole management process of creating, managing and fixing localization strings is sometimes very complicated and involves developers much more than it is actually needed.
We in Tolgee try to reshape the process of software localization with different approach, which aims to save time and effort of everyone who is getting involved such as developers and translators.
With Tolgee, developers are not involved in localization process after the process of development itself. They develop the app, integrate Tolgee integration libraries and deploy an instance, where translators can change the localization texts in the context of web application. Texts are then synchronized with Tolgee server (REST API) and there is no need for developers to be part of the localization process.
- Develop your app
- Integrate Tolgee
- Let translators do their job
With Tolgee, you can manage localization texts in simple UI. UI is like a joke. When you have to explain it, it isn't good. Following this philosophy we are trying to keep out UI as clean and simple as we can.
You can deploy Tolgee on your local machine and use it for your local localization management, you can deploy it on your cloud infrastructure with production ready database (PostgreSQL), or you can use the server and web app deployed by us.
With Tolgee integrated in your web application, you can use our in-context localization feature, so you can just click & translate the text. This feature can actually save a lot of time for communication between translators and developers. In most of the cases translators can change the texts directly in the app and see how it looks like, so any issues such as typos or broken layout can be solved immediately.
Tolgee consists of Server (REST-API), web application and integration libraries.
Server is REST API based backend service. It is where you store and organize your localization strings. Basically, it provides a business logic layer between web application and integration libraries. Web application is delivered and deployed with the server, so it's deployment is very easy.
Integration libraries are using data provided by REST API directly, so texts changed in the web application are propagated into applications you currently develop.
Tolgee is not 100% complex yet, but we are on it. We would be happy for any type of contribution such as feedback or pull requests. If you have something on mind, contact us on [email protected].
