Here i present small but powerful web instrument for public localization of applications and some more thoughts on software translations, which soon will be published as open-source after some tests in real projects.
Public localizator (beta) – is online web solution for fast translation of application strings to many languages by its users. Of course if you have money to invest in localization by paid services – it will be better solution, but if you have project which has wide range of users, which are interested in translation why not to create interface for them. As i had some positive experience of user translation i decided to create simple web tool. This approach is much better than sending some files/tools to your translators – translation is easy, its continuous process and you can monitor progress at any time.
