The European summer is reaching its end, and right now, the weather forecasts are telling us that we are in for the wet season, which is delightful news for the productivity of digital teams.

- Organizations Preview

- Community update

🎫 Organizations Preview 🔗
Localazy started as a developer-oriented platform for managing translations and helped hundreds of them with the localization of their apps.
While small and big teams are picking up Localazy as their TMS of choice, we are proud to announce that we have worked hard to introduce a new way of managing projects in Localazy that will suit you all better.
Please note that this is the first version of what's about to come later.
✔️ What is possible with organizations now?
- Invite team members and share all projects with them
- Apply active plans, and source key increases organization-wide
- Transfer projects from personal workspace to an organization (user needs to be an Owner in the organization)
- Better invoicing and separate billing
- Brand new Dashboard
These basic organization features are now available to all users to streamline your translation management in Localazy even more.
⌛ What will be possible shortly?
- Creating teams within organizations
- Permission granularity
- Upload organization image
- View organization activity stream
- Separate notifications
📥 Download translated files directly 🔗
For some while now, file uploads are possible directly via the UI without installing CLI, opening the platform to quicker adoption and a more user-friendly start.
Today, we introduce the possibility to download translated files directly via File management as well. Managing translations is even easier now, even for non-developer folks!
Why is this new feature significant? You can now check how Localazy can benefit you instantly. You can also upload any texts (e.g., marketing copy or video subtitles), have them translated by our Localization Team to the language of your choice, and download it all back with a few clicks! Try it!

🤝 Community Updates 🔗
The Community section is the place where you can help us help you grow. Answer surveys, write an interview with us, send your referral link to your friends, or spread the word about Localazy by sharing our blog articles and get rewarded for it!
More is to come in the future. Make sure to visit the community section every once in a while! 🙂
🤫 Secret projects 🔗
A new feature available for our Enterprise users is the ability to set the project type to secret. Secret projects are not indexed or searchable, and only invited users can see them. 🔒 Helpful if you handle projects for clients or simply want to keep your projects behind the curtain.
Pick up your Enterprise plan in the Localazy marketplace or visit the pricing page for more information about our plans.
🎉 Improvements 🔗
CDN JSON meta update
⚠️ We have updated the CDN metafile. CDN now supports a new JSON format with v2.json suffix.
Please note that the old URLs of JSON metafiles will be deprecated in the near future.

Added Active subscriptions section into the Marketplace dashboard
To help you keep track of all running subscriptions on top of your plan, we have added a new section into the 🛍️ Marketplace Dashboard. You can see all your additional purchases here.
Updated Translations Tables UI
- Translators can now see their version of translated string to help keep track of their progress and translation context.
- Owners can batch approve selected translations, send them to review or pre-translate using our MT pre-translate feature.
- We have also added some new filtering options and made other minor tweaks.
Updated sign up and login screen
Secure support chat requests

Auto-generated avatars and app icons
This is a small gimmick, but we really like how it turned out. For projects and users who don't have their own custom picture uploaded, Localazy automatically generates an avatar and icon. 🤠 Try to change your avatar or create a new project to see it in action! 😀
