The new release is here! I called the last release update “special.” Well, this one took us a little longer, and I think I can call it not only “special” but even “game-changing,” so let’s see what’s new!
In todays' release update:
- We are introducing new pricing with cashflow friendly options and more features at lower costs.
- iOS SDK to make the developer experience even juicier, take a bite!
- Import your files directly; you won't need CLI for simple stuff anymore! Plus, additional file options.
- Community Section! Earn rewards and help us help you grow!
- More improvements and fixes, as is customary. 😊
📒 New pricing with a better cost-benefit ratio 🔗
We've had countless meetings and discussions among our team, users, and stakeholders regarding our pricing.
Our philosophy stays, but we wanted to make the pricing more transparent and less complicated. That's one reason why we are introducing monthly plans that include source key limit increases and additional features neatly bundled by use case.
🕊️ Free Tier 🔗
The Free plan remains without change and is designed for smaller projects and individual developers who look for a fully-featured translation management system. The free tier offers all core localization features to help you successfully manage and translate your app’s texts.

⭐ Professional Tier 🔗
The Professional plan is suitable for developers and companies looking for more automation for their multilingual app development workflow process, including localization.
This tier further extends the core localization features of our Free tier and comes with Release Tags, Format Conversions, and Connected Projects features, ready for agile development processes and aiming to keep your translation management even more clean and streamlined. Plus, there is a 7-day trial available for this plan!

✔️ Price: Only $9 / month (see pricing)
🚀 Autopilot Tier (recommended!) 🔗
The Autopilot plan offers a real automated continuous localization experience for all developers and companies of any size.
Autopilot comes with a generous source key limit, advanced features from the Professional tier, and core localization features available in the Free tier.
On top of that, with each payment, you receive translation credits to spend on Virtual Translator or other translation services by our Continuous Localization Team to enjoy a genuinely automated localization of your app and Additional MT Engines to boost your translation quality.

🌎 Agency Tier 🔗
The Agency plan unlocks all features of Localazy and packs plenty of additional benefits. Enjoy the full service of an outsourced localization team without the hassle and overhead costs.
With Agency, you get a rich source key limit, advanced features from the Autopilot and Professional tiers, and core localization features available in the Free tier.
On top of that, with each payment, you receive translation credits to enjoy automated localization of your projects and credit for Online Services to deliver your translations globally via Localazy CDN and OTA updates.

✔️ Price: $199 / month (see pricing)
Worry not; you can still increase your source key limit for life with a simple one-time payment, and as we mentioned, the free plan stays without any change. Users can renew all running subscriptions or choose to switch to one of our new plans.
Read more about the decisions leading to this significant change in our business model in our announcement: From a lifelong deal to an immediate boost.
We have also decided to change the definitions we use a little bit. Phrases are now called source keys, and add-ons are now called just features.
This change stems from discussions with our users; some of them have found this terminology confusing, and we are hoping that this will make everything clearer.
🍎 Introducing Localazy iOS and macOS SDK (beta) 🔗
Even though our CEO Václav is a die-hard Android fan, we know that we can't ignore the apple orchard and the developer community caring for it that helps billions of users enjoy great apps on their Apple devices.
And because our mission is to help everyone enjoy apps in their preferred language, one way to achieve it is to give all developers the proper tools to do so efficiently.
Currently in beta, but fully featured Localazy Swift SDK for iOS and macOS is now available to everyone. Read everything to get you up to speed with the SDK in the localazy-swift repository. To see Localazy Swift SDK in action, you can check our demo project here.
📤 Import your localization files directly 🔗
Importing your localization files to Localazy is an easy alternative to uploading files using our CLI. You can import new keys for your source language or map existing translations to the current source keys.
Learn everything about importing files via File management in the documentation.
We have also added more options to files. You can now add new source keys, approve all keys in the file, send them to review or pre-translate them with the machine translation engine of your choice (available with the Additional MT feature enabled).
🥳 The brand new community section (beta) 🔗
Inside the new 🤝Community section, you will find various ways to help Localazy grow and get rewarded for it! 🎁 Make sure to visit the Community regularly not to miss new ways to help us help you :)
🛠️ Various updates and fixes 🔗
Localazy schema supports conversions 🔗
Organization owners are highlighted among contributors 🔗
You can now see a little 👑 crown icon next to users who can make purchases for the project on the Contributors screen.
On-demand support chat 🔗
Due to several complaints that our new live chat solution covered parts of Localazy UI, we have decided to hide the chat icon and show it on demand. To chat with us, find the ❓ button in the top right corner and click on Contact support.
