Managing translations for 10 languages across 2 web and 4 mobile apps can be challenging without a translation platform. Initially, Meister had their own translation system developed internally. However, when they started developing their second web app called MeisterTask, they had decided to implement one of Lokalise's competitors.
Adding and tagging screenshots, managing glossaries, collaborating with translators became hard on that platform. In addition, dealing with the errors they had in their system made Meister consider other translation platforms.
"Looked into at least 6 translation platforms, Lokalise is the best" Silviu Oprean, Growth Marketing & Translation Management
One of Meister's iOS developers had worked on another project with Lokalise, and he recommended it to them. Once Meister team gave Lokalise a try, they realized that this was the perfect translation management platform they had been looking for.
"Your amazing customer support team played a big role"
Uploading and tagging screenshots is one of the features that Meister enjoy the most. It allows them to easily provide context for the translators and improve the quality of their translations. Built-in project chat, customizable notifications, a wide variety of integrations — they all contribute to providing better quality translations.

"Now we have happy translators and developer teams :)"
Our current workflow in Lokalise: when a copywriter populates all 3 languages, we trigger a CI pipeline, which exports iOS and Android localization bundles and integrates them into our application repositories. We use a separate github public repo to push/version all localization files. Pretty simple.
Lokalise has a very user-friendly interface, the filters and tags are extremely helpful in keeping everything organized and the in-line editor which synchs in both directions is a very neat little tool. Even just being able to attach screenshots to provide context has been a huge timesaver. Overall, Lokalise does exactly what it's supposed to do and the constant development has improved the software already so much over the time I've been working with it. However, the most noteworthy thing is the outstanding customer support that deals with questions and issues in record time.
