Smartling vs Transifex: What are the differences?

Developers describe Smartling as "Cloud-Based Translation Management Platform". Smartling takes the complexity, cost and time out of the translation process by providing companies with an automated, cloud-based translation management platform and comprehensive translation services. On the other hand, Transifex is detailed 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.

Smartling and Transifex can be categorized as "Translation Service" tools.

Some of the features offered by Smartling are:

  • Translation memory
  • Custom workflows
  • Business intelligence

On the other hand, Transifex provides the following key features:

  • Command-line tool: A Git-like command line tool that lets developers manage translations within a project without an elaborate UI system. They can use the command-line client to create new resources, map locale files to translations, and synchronize their Transifex project with local files and vice versa
  • Order translations: Get professional-quality translations in 33 languages
  • Reports: See a list of users who have contributed to your projects along with the number of new and edited words each one has translated
