Over-the-air updates

Publish translation updates instantly. No need to wait for the next deployment or re-submit a new version for approval from the App Store or Google Play.


Different types of context to improve the quality of translations

Upload screenshots or connect Figma, Sketch, or Adobe XD, to share visual context with translators. Text on the images is automatically recognized and matched with keys. You can also add metadata, descriptions and links, or see how translation changes look in real time on your web or mobile app through live in-context editors.


Flexible workflows

Manage and organize your translation and localization workflow in a way that works best for your team. Lokalise allows you to set multiple revision steps and chain them one after another. You can also assign custom statuses, both manually and in bulk, and use sophisticated search and filter functionalities so that no string can slip through the cracks.


Branching (version control)

Work on a new version of your content, while simultaneously supporting previous versions. Merge the two when ready and resolve any automatically identified conflicts.
