“100% for creativity in connecting projects with translators and managing everything in one place. I love that I didn't have to pay a subscription. It was very easy for me to start using and I could invite translators to my project by just adding their email addresses. I wish I found this platform sooner.”
“I think the design is a work in progress as it gets better with every update. The updates were all free by the way. I was sceptical about this application at first but since it was free to start using, I gave it a go. I have been using it with my team for a few months now with great success. I can check the progress on my phone. The flag issue function is a treat.”
“As a translator, I mainly translate Indesign files. I don't have to worry anymore about copying the translated text back into InDesign as this website does it all for me. It has saved me tons of time and I can now focus on translating. I only pay when I download my translations into the Indesign format. Worth every penny.”
