The GitHub of Software Translation
ReadWriteWeb posted today a story titled “The GitHub of Software Translation: Transifex Goes Freemium. Yes, you read that correctly. RRW is one of the most influential Web technology news sites on the Internet (#12 in top 100 blogs worldwide by Technorati).
From the article:
From Summer of Code to core of the open source community, Transifex is a service to watch. Indifex, the company behind the Web-based collaborative translation platform has put up a major upgrade this week The Transifex upgrade adds paid plans for companies, new quality control tools, support for Ruby on Rails, iOS and Android apps.
Transifex started out as a Google Summer of Code project in 2007 by Dimitris Glezos to help make localization easier. From there, the project has grown into a core service for hundreds of open source projects like Django, GNOME, F-Spot, Firefox, Fedora and many others.
Translations and localization is often overlooked. However, it’s an important part of software development and deployment – and this is an area where a startup like Indifex could do very well. Keep an eye on this group, I think they’re destined for big (well, bigger) things.
The best is yet to come.
