Connected Apps

Modern projects are often scattered around various platforms and built with different stacks. Their localization may lead to duplicated efforts and a lot of costly manual work. How cool would it be to translate your content only once and let Localazy handle the rest?

How it works? 🔗

In the background, Localazy uses its InTM technology, which is a much smarter version of a classic translation memory. InTM distributes existing translations between connected apps and automatically decides, whether the translation can be used right away or needs to go through review first. This can really save you a significant amount of time and money.

Connected apps also share all glossary terms by default. When you create a new term, it gets automatically distributed among your connected apps. This way, all your translators can operate within the same context, and you don’t need to redefine the terms for each app separately.

Activate the add-on 🔗

First of all, you need to head to the Marketplace and activate the Connected apps add-on.

Configure your connections 🔗

Once activated, open one of your projects and go to Settings -> Connected apps. You should see the following screen with the Connected apps configuration.

Select an app you would like to connect. Added connections should later appear in both apps’ settings.

The app connection is bidirectional and transitive. Meaning that connected apps mutually receive translations from each other. Also, if app A is connected to app B, and app B is connected to app C, then A might also receive translations from C and vice versa.

Translate and profit 🔗

After adding some phrases and translating/reviewing phrases, wait a short moment and visit one of the other connected apps. (Note that only approved phrases might be transferred)

You should see that the new languages were added and have some phrases translated. The transferred phrases might either fall into the review process or for cases where we can determine that the phrases are precisely the same, they can be approved automatically.

Adding glossary items will also propagate them across all connected apps.
