Transifex vs Locize: What are the differences?
Developers describe Transifex as "GitHub for Translation". Transifex is a cloud-based localization platform built to help you manage the translation and localization of your app, website, video subtitles, and more. It acts as a repository for your content (think GitHub for translation) and includes tools for developers to get that content into Transifex automatically. Transifex also provides translators a web interface to submit translations. On the other hand, Locize is detailed as "Bridging the gap between translation and development". It is a modern and affordable localization management solution. It makes your website, app, game or whatever your project is, global, vibrant, and more engaging especially when unleashing the continuous localization capabilities.
Transifex and Locize can be categorized as "Translation Service" tools.
