The following is an overview of other features available in your Localize dashboard, which you may use in your localization process.

Approve Content for Translation

In order to begin translating your site, you must approve the phrases you wish to be translated.

Translation Workflows Overview

Watch this short video which describes the basic workflow of translating your website using Localize. You'll learn how content is found by Localize and brought into your Localize dashboard, and how to translate that content with machine and human translations.

Machine Translations

Localize will automatically generate machine translations from Google Translate for each phrase you approve. We recommend using machine translations for testing purposes only, since the quality of machine translations aren't very good.

Human Translations

To professionally translate your content, you can:

Customize the Widget

You can customize the default language-switching widget to better match the branding in your website. See how here...

Add More Languages

You can add more languages to your project from the Languages page.

Team Management
