Open Source Project Localization Platform

Transifex is a highly scalable localization platform with a focus on integrating well with the existing workflow of both translators and developers.

It aims in making it dead-simple for content providers to receive quality translations from big translation communities, no matter where the project is hosted.


  • Provide an interface for translators to submit translations to multiple projects, regardless of the type of the underlying version control system (VCS)
  • Reduce the overhead a project maintainer usually undertakes to administrate accounts for translators
  • Help translators do more by eliminating the need to subscribe to each VCS and learn its commands and tricks
  • Encourage collaboration between developers and maintainers and thus, increase the language coverage of the participant projects


Currently Transifex is used by the Fedora Project ( to manage translations by a few hundred translators to 75 projects and 70 languages, peaking at 3000 translation submissions per month.
