What is Machine Translation? It certainly has nothing to do with hiring an intelligent robot — but it’s as close as you can get. When referring to Machine Translation (MT), we are talking about software such as Google Translate, Amazon Translate, and DeepL.

While all MT tools are practically doing the same job, each one of them has different advantages and disadvantages. Here is all you need to know!

Back in spring 2020, Transifex introduced Transifex Native technology, a modern, end-to-end cloud-based localization solution, saying goodbye to the cumbersome process of managing localization files during product development.

The best approach to building a great solution, though, is to eat your own dog food. After all, how would you expect it to work for your customers, unless you made it to work for you in the first place?

Transifex frontend is built using two core technologies. A legacy frontend using server-side Django HTML templates and a next-gen stack using webpack and React with all the bells and whistles included. Given…

As far as automation in localization (l10n) is concerned, Machine Translation is no doubt one of the most underestimated features. The thing is that some MT tools, such as DeepL, are more specialized for certain languages than others. And they are certainly worth a try.

That is why we now have DeepL integrated into the Transifex platform. Keep on reading to learn all about it and how it differs from other Machine Translation tools!

Machine Translation (MT) is software that translates content by using either:

What is localization? And what about Translation Management Systems? Or software localization, automated localization, globalization, internationalization, etc.

We are talking about an industry with tons of complicated questions and not a whole lot of answers. So, let us clarify things a little. Here is what localization is all about!

What is Localization?

Simply put, the very definition of localization (l10n) is when you take a piece of content in its original form and then convert it into something more suitable for another country, audience, or city. It is all about making your content accessible and appealing to locals.
