Another useful tool shows you text summary with number of words and characters of translations. It will show you also which translations were added automatically with DeepL or Google Translate.

SimpleLocalize - About us

SimpleLocalize was created by Jakub Pomykała back in 2019 in response to the lack of simple translation management solutions. With that in mind, he built a simple translation editor which supports many popular frameworks and formats. SimpleLocalize now has two members, Jakub himself as a brain, heart and hands of the whole system, and the author of this post, Kinga ☺️

Jakub and Kinga

We built SimpleLocalize with simplicity in mind, with the idea of a user, translator and developer-friendly software that is easy to integrate in any workflow. By checking SimpleLocalize changelog you can see new features and improvements that we added as a response to our customers' needs. SimpleLocalize is feedback-driven app and we are open to any new integration and customizations.

SimpleLocalize now is a fully grown system trusted by many users from all over the world. Every day, it processes gigabytes of translation data thanks to stable and trust-worthy services like Amazon, Cloudflare, Sentry and GitHub.
