As an esports company, we didn't want to invest in building our own translation tool; it's not our industry. We looked around at what was on the market and Lokalise stood out as the best tool in its class. Not only in terms of UI but also in terms of price.

The diversity of file extensions makes me really excited. I mean, I can upload Ruby files, and the mobile team can upload their files. And the file format is automatically regenerated when we export and import. It's a great feature!
