What is a glossary? 📚

Glossary is a feature of every useful computer-assisted translation tool (CAT). Glossary keeps translations precise across many different cultures and thus is essential for successful app localization.

Glossary allows you to protect certain terms from translation or define correct translations for them.

Localazy highlights glossary terms during the translation session and provides contextual information right when it's needed the most.

Translations are also validated before they are saved to ensure the correct use of glossary.

Translation Glossary

While many digital product makers choose machine translations for the very start (and it’s a standard best practice for early stages of development where MT-pre translate is a rational decision), they often forget that machine translation alone yields subpar results.

It’s vital to focus on the highest possible quality of translation when it comes to product interfaces and product marketing. But enlisting professional translators is not a silver bullet solution. You need to be diligent and prepare a sound basis for successful localization.

These are best practices to ensure the best translation quality:

CAT stands for computer-assisted translation, also known as computer-aided translation. These translation tools are invaluable for professional translators and significantly improve the consistency and speed up translation projects.

CAT tools are software applications that support text translation from one language to another. More specifically, CAT tools for translation are used for submitting, editing, managing, and storing translations.

They’re also frequently used by individual translators and bilingual employees who work for organizations that have global audiences or have extensive localization needs. Overall, it’s estimated that CAT tools are used by more than 86% of translators.

Localazy is a complete localization suite and includes CAT features to help you or your translators with their work.

There is no hard limit at the moment, but it’s recommended to keep the size of each individual item under 4kB. This corresponds to 4,000 characters encoded as UTF-8 and 2,000 characters encoded as UTF-16. Uploading longer texts won’t yield any errors, but might get refused by some external translation engines integrated in Localazy.

Well designed tool with many features

We are operating multiple complex websites with many localisations. Managing and keeping all dictionaries up-to-date was pure hell before we switched to Localazy. We are now easily able to review, manage and keep all dictionaries up-to-date whenever we add or modify any functionality.

Very powerful translation system with affordable cost

We looked for a solution that can cover several use cases across our project and Localazy is a clear winner. Thanks to CLI tools, git and branching, and features we could integrate Localazy with GitHub Actions for automated documentation translation delivery.

Developer- and translator-friendly service. Great user experience!

Localazy has been a game-changer for our localisation efforts. I have tried various localisation tools in the past, but Localazy stands out as the best one. It not only takes away all the headaches related to creating and maintaining up-to-date localisation resources and allows you to easily create a community that helps with the translation. The service offers a rich set of automation options, starting with technical ones such as a CLI that can be used in a CI pipeline or OTA/CDN updates/delivery and ending with various machine pre-translations or human-assisted continuous translation. And all that is on top of a responsive and attentive team behind the project.
