Lokalise Raises $6 Million From a Group of Investors
The Latvian startup Lokalise, which helps localize applications, sites, games, and other projects, has raised $6 million from a group of investors, according to TechCrunch.
Among the participants in the funding round are Andrey Khusid, founder of the Russian collaboration service Miro, Houzz investor Mike Chalfen, Intercom co-founder Des Traynor and others. Lokalise allows you to speed up the translation of content. For this, you need to upload language files to the service, and it will automatically offer a translation of each phrase into several languages. Afterward, translators can manually edit the texts, explains TechCrunch.
When the work is complete, the service will help you upload the updated language files to the application using the API or SDK.
Lokalise has elements of a teamwork service. For example, you can leave comments or tag other participants.
The startup was launched by Nick Ustinov and former co-owner of the Megogo service Petr Antropov. Lokalise’s customers include Yelp, Daimler, Virgin Mobile, and Tesco, with over 1,500 organizations in total, according to the company’s website. The company has annual revenues of $4 million.
