How are you enjoying the last days of summer? πŸ–οΈ

We are excited to announce various new features that will help you control how your projects are translated with more attention to detail than ever before. So let's explore the latest developments together! Grab your favorite summer drink and read on! 🍹

🧾 New Organization Billing πŸ”—

The new Organization Billing is where you can manage your subscriptions, order translations for your projects, and configure translation delivery services - CDN and OTA updates. We also shut down the hosted billing portal on Stripe and moved all billing management features into our platform for a more seamless experience.

πŸ‘‹ Say goodbye to the Marketplace and welcome the new Organization Billing section! πŸ’™

Overview

The new billing overview gives you a glimpse of your active plan, active services, and current billing details. From the overview, you can quickly navigate to important places related to your subscriptions, spending, and billing information.

You can now also manage all your payment methods inside the platform and see all invoices without leaving Localazy.

🌐 Translation Delivery πŸ”—

Formerly known as Online Services, Translation Delivery is where you can find your OTA and CDN cost overviews. Localazy CDN is the best way to automate the translation delivery for your project. With Localazy CDN, you can set up your project in a way that allows you to deliver localizable assets directly to your users from Localazy servers.

For mobile apps, we have OTA (Over-the-air) updates. Both CDN and OTA serve the same purpose, which is delivering translated content directly to your users. Localazy CDN works best with web applications.

Learn more about OTA and CDN in the documentation.

OTA and CDN can now be enabled or turned off separately in each project, which gives you more granular control of what data you want to publish and how much you spend for translation delivery.

πŸ‘¨β€πŸ’» New in Developer Console πŸ”—

Localazy Developer Console is the place where you can manage advanced configurations, connect integrations, and set up duplicity links and automated workflows. Now, you can do even more inside the Localazy Dev Console, allowing you to streamline your localization workflows even further.

Single Sign-On Setup πŸ” πŸ”—

You can start using SSO to allow your organization members access to Localazy.

Our Enterprise users can now manage their Single Sign-On configuration in the Localazy Dev Console. Any SAML 2.0 compatible provider works with Localazy (e.g., Google, Azure, Okta, etc.), and if you are using Google or Azure, the setup is even easier with our pre-defined settings!

Once configured, users from your organization can sign in at https://localazy.com/sso/{yourOrg}

Languages Stats 🎌 πŸ”—

Language Statistics in Localazy Console

The languages tab in the Console gives you a consolidated overview of the state of your project's source keys and translations in the respective languages.

Source language stats show you:

  • How many active keys are in the project
  • How many source keys are hidden or deprecated
  • How many of them are duplicates, and what is the duplicate ratio

For each target language, you can then find out:

  • How many source keys are translated
  • How many translations need review
  • How many translations were approved or unapproved
  • How many translations had their source changed or need improvement
All stats are available in the following units: source key counts, words, or characters.

Reporting πŸ“’ πŸ”—

Reporting gives our Agency users even better insight into the state of their projects from language and contributor perspectives for a given time period.

User Reporting in Localazy Console

Reporting data can help you tell, e.g.:

  • How many words have each of my translators translated in the previous month?
  • How many translations in German were reviewed last week?
You can select up to a 90-day period and filter by username or language for a quick access to the views that are important for you.

Agency Import/Export πŸ“€ πŸ”—

When your long-term translation supplier doesn't want to switch to Localazy because their translators are used to working in their own CAT Tools (we don't blame them!), you can use this feature to export your project into the CSV format and then import translated content back once you get it back from your translation provider. This feature is available only for Agency plan users.

We strive to make the localization process as frictionless as possible, and allowing our customers to collaborate with their long-term partners or use their favorite tools is an important step toward our goal. But still, we believe the best way to approach cooperation with a Translation Agency is to convince them to switch to Localazy anyway. πŸ˜…

Webhook Logging πŸ—ƒοΈ πŸ”—

Webhooks are custom user-defined callbacks on specific actions happening in Localazy. Currently, four actions are available that you can hook into your system. The webhook configuration is available on the Project Settings page and via Public API.

In the Console, you can now access Webhook logs to see all fired events and debug your Webhook implementations more easily.

  • Improved the general performance of table filters
