Hundred million translations: 2021 in review

Welcome to the new year of 2022! After a much-needed Christmas holiday break, we are back at full speed to deliver more exciting features and improve the platform further. 2021 was a fantastic year for Localazy, and we are happy to share some numbers with you.

πŸ•ΉοΈ 50+ new integrations πŸ”—

You could have integrated Localazy only with Android apps in the early days. During the past year, we worked hard to support more platforms. Now we have over 50 integrations with various frameworks and file formats to help you integrate with your projects' tech stack, and mostly without quirky workarounds.

Localazy allows you to choose from a variety of approaches.

  • For mobile, you have powerful SDKs for Android and iOS.
  • For translations kept in a database, you can connect your project via the brand new localization API and integrate almost anything you would like.
  • There is also the powerful CLI with the extensive support of formats, commands, and automation options for most developers.
  • Designers can enjoy design localization with the Figma plugin,
  • and for everyone else, we have also added the direct file import option.

Probably because it was first, Android wins 2021 as the most popular integration with 23.6% of total integrations. In the second place is JSON, the favorite universal format for software localization, closely followed by React, iOS, and other web front-end frameworks.

Custom integrations πŸ”—

Even though we were adding new integrations every month in the past year, the world of software development and localization is expanding faster than we can even fathom. For this purpose, we are opening our development API for selected users to create their own custom integrations.

Please read our community documentation or contact us to learn more.

πŸͺ“ 10.000+ tasks worked on πŸ”—

We have to admit: we just love our productivity tool. According to our ClickUp, we have collectively worked on more than 10.000 tasks in the past year! Kudos to ClickUp for making our workflows streamlined and keeping us on track.

Who was the most productive team member? Our CEO, VΓ‘clav, was crushing it in the past year with a whopping 3.857 tasks - that's what I call leading by example!

Meet our CEO VΓ‘clav - the king of ClickUp at Localazy! πŸ˜…

But don't worry, we are not blazing through our to-do lists without any struggles because we have completed "only" two thousand tasks total. This means that big plans are still in the works!

⚑ 6 Release Updates and over 2.500 commits πŸ”—

We release small updates and fixes whenever needed. But on average, every two months, we roll out a big update that introduces new features or big changes. In 2021, we had sent out 6 Release Updates and introduced most of our advanced features such as Context Screenshots, Release Tags, or Additional MT Engines.

New features released every two months? Not bad!

All of these were made possible thanks to our development team, who managed to produce over 2.500 commits into the GitHub code repository in 2021, led by our product manager Jan.

πŸŽ‰ 100.000.000 managed translations! πŸ”—

This number is totally mind-blowing. In early December, the total number of managed translations exceeded the magical hundred-million milestone!

We want to thank all users who use Localazy to manage their translations. Keep it up, so we can reach two hundred million by the end of 2022! Let's go! πŸš€ Β 

Most projects use English as the source language, and the three most popular languages are: Β 

  1. β›΅ Spanish
  2. πŸŒ… Arabic
  3. πŸ₯– French

Spanish is the most popular language for translation, in the lead with almost 19%. Arabic is a close second with 17.6%. French is third, closely followed by American English and German. Below, you can find the list of top runner-ups.
