Localize

Localized fits perfectly for clients who would love to have their website localized. It offers great plugins and integrations with popular content management systems and serves as a translation management system for your website. Setup is rather easy, however, more complex setups would require a more technical approach which is not always possible.

Smartcat

  • Project setup is super easy and straightforward. Literally takes seconds to create a project, assign TM and termbases and add team members.
  • As a project manager, I need to understand the progress of the project and where everyone on the team is. ABBYY SmartCAT makes it easy to track these things.
  • SmartCAT makes it incredibly easy to pay our translators which is much cheaper than handling payments via wire transfers.
  • Their CAT tool offers great collaborative features including the ability to assign segments and leave comments on strings so proofreaders could see them.

Cons

Localize

  • Providing other features, beyond language. Such as replacing images or other content to allow a fully tailored website for each country.

Smartcat

  • Performance has been an issue initially. Sometimes it takes longer for some things to load and it can be frustrating.
  • UI seems a bit confusing at times. For example, I don't understand why I need to have a translator's profile when I'm clearly a project manager.
  • Their support team can take a long time to reply which often crucial for urgent projects.

Alternatives Considered

Localize

Frankly, we don't know what other translation management systems are out there, so we can't comment on how they compare to Localize.

Smartcat

We also tried Memsource but it was lacking in terms of overall user experience and ease of use. Assigning projects in SmartCAT is a much more intuitive experience, plus it has all these other additional features that are absent from Memsource (like payment solution for freelancers). On top of that, the SmartCAT is absolutely free to use.
