We strive to continuously improve all aspects of Localazy to help you localize your projects more efficiently and effortlessly. Read on to find out what was improved in the latest release. ๐ŸŽ‰

๐ŸŽ›๏ธ Manage Releases in UI ๐Ÿ”—

We are happy to introduce a new interface for Releases management in the Localazy UI. This feature was previously available only via CLI. In our effort to make our features more accessible to all users, we have decided it is the right time to implement a user-friendly way to work with releases in the UI directly.

You can now manage translation Releases from the Localazy UI

Releases are snapshots of your translations. With Releases, you can create and store the current state of your translations in time, pick which changes should be published into existing releases, and download them through supported integrations to use different versions in different environments.

The most common use case for Releases is to lock the state of production translations before adding new strings for translations.

๐Ÿ› ๏ธ Revamped project settings ๐Ÿ”—

We have changed our settings and added more options for customization in both machine translations and the translation interface fields. One of the new features is the ability to choose the tone of voice for your project, which is then recognized by the supported MT engines.

โš ๏ธ COMING SOON: Now, it is also possible to choose multiple languages available as a source for translations and reviews. This feature is not available in the translation interface yet, but feel free to set it up in advance ๐Ÿ˜…

A very popular use case is using Developer English as the primary source and then using English as the production language. With this option, you can use English as the preferred language for translation to other languages instead of Developer English. ย 

๐Ÿ” New Navigation ๐Ÿ”—

As Localazy continues to expand its features and accommodate more use cases, we have updated our navigation to reflect this growth. We have organized certain items into easily discoverable categories and improved accessibility for others.

โณ Progress indication of long-running tasks ๐Ÿ”—

We've added a new type of notification which tracks the progress of long-running tasks such as pre-translate and batch approve/review. Once the task finishes, you'll get notified about the result.

๐Ÿ” Improved search in similar strings ๐Ÿ”—

In the previous release, the context tabs were improved to show comments across languages, and a new search in similar strings across the project was added. In this update, we have completed a follow-up, and our indexing algorithm has been enhanced for better performance.
