🤖 The new Virtual Translator is here!

We are proud to announce that the Virtual Translator is now officially out of the beta stage and open for business! Focus on what’s important and use Virtual Translator to automatically translate and review your app’s phrases to selected languages. Now, you can choose between human-assisted machine translation or professional translations. The Virtual Translator is ready to help you translate your app even faster.

At the moment, Virtual Translator offers 20 language pairs total, and eight language pairs are available for a professional translation. No worries, more are coming in the future! The new version also offers a more granular configuration with the possibility to configure projects, languages, and operations separately with more details now available to you about pricing, estimations, etc.

Are you ready to take your translation game to the next level? Set up your Virtual Translator now and enjoy localization on auto-pilot. Do you have any questions or ideas? Feel free to contact us or start a thread in the forum ![](upload://7BBDRMxBbSmNSza9xSoFEvGYx4B.png)

🧰 Major CLI developer experience update

If you already use Localazy, you know the CLI very well. It’s a powerful weapon, and to make your life with the Localazy CLI tool even easier, we introduce a major update.

What’s new?

  • CLI now comes with colors! Fancy!
  • Full support for release tags
  • Support for our global localization CDN
  • Support for file format conversions
  • Possibility to change working directory with a command-line option
  • Synchronous (wait for data to be imported) and asynchronous mode
  • Improved error reporting
  • Added forceCurrent option to skip review process for existing translations
  • Fixed several minor bugs and issues
  • Added support for managing files

Developing software is an iterative process, and using the latest ever-changing version of your translations in a production or staging environment may not be a good idea. To help you streamline your workflow, we have added the Release Tags add-on available as a set of CLI commands.


🔄 Format Conversions

Another CLI goodie. Activate the Format Conversions add-on and seamlessly output your translations in many different formats. Helpful for simultaneous multiplatform development or instant translation sharing between the backend and frontend of your project.


📝 Browse your files in Localazy

In your app menu, you will find a new tab called File management. Here, you can see your localizable files and browse your source phrases contained in the files. The file management interface is now in beta and we are working on the next iteration which will bring more features soon.

🗃️ From the backlog
