But what about the rest?
Here comes another simple solution from Localazy labs 🥼.
Enabling Virtual Translator for your apps will regularly scan for new phrases and automatically translate them into selected languages. It’s a cheap and simple way to introduce continuous localization to your apps without any effort. Even if you are going to request professional translations at a later stage of your project, completing it will require much less work.
Virtual Translator is a human-assisted neural network
Using a bare machine translation engine is free as far as you do not consider your time and quality assurance. However, in the software localization domain, you will soon find out that many of those translations are just not the right fit. For example, the word “book” is usually considered by MT engines as a piece of literature, while in software, the more common meaning is a reservation, eg. booking a room. The challenge to assure the right translation is chosen deepens when it is in the alphabet you even do not know how to read.
