search cancel – Localize Your Application

GetLocalization.comGet Localization is a new community site that aims to bring developers and translators together, and let the former create applications everyone can understand with the help and assistance of the latter.


If you want to get a little more technical, you could say that is social web-based CAT-tool for software localization with support for crowdsourcing and normal translation projects. But you would essentially be saying the same: it is a site in which developers can get in touch with translators that will assist them in the creation of applications that people the world over can understand.

The translation process itself can be done in two different ways. On the one hand, the developers can choose to crowdsource the whole translation work. On the other hand, it is possible to hire the work of professional translators and arrange everything privately.

The site itself claims to support over 7000 different languages, and while it is impossible for me to say how accurate that number is I can see that the vast majority of popular development environments are fully supported – JAVA, Django, Rails, Symbian, Symfony… Of course, those who are developing applications for iPhones and every other major mobile platform are fully taken into account, too.

Smartest way to localize your application.

Why It Might Be A Killer

Such a platform makes for creating truly localized apps. Any developer will be able to individualize the language (or languages) in question for the translation process to be dealt with, in the way that suits him best.
