In time for the summer, your localization management work is getting a whole lot easier - we promise. LingoHub received a huge upgrade both in the back-end as well as the UI. A number of requested features have been implemented thanks to all the great feedback we have received after the last big release of our dashboard. We fine tuned a lot of functionality that is essential for localization management and worked a lot on performance.

Here is a breakdown of what is new for you:

The new localization management dashboard

With our last update, we introduced a helpful new version of our dashboard. This update fine tunes a lot of its functionality, it fixes tons of bugs and greatly improves performance and accuracy, so you have all the information you need, when you need it.

The first thing you will notice is a huge graphical representation of your project's status per language, and as overview (see screenshot). This gives you an immediate update of what changed recently, and where it changed. You can compare between various locales and get more information as you hover your mouse over certain days/locales.

Below, you can browse through the various locales of your project and get statistics on a broken down level. There is also an indicator of open invitations to collaborators, a list of collaborators working on each locale and a progress graph per locale, including an indicator of whether there are unmet LingoChecks. Browse around, have a look!

Word count is here

Later than expected, but it finally arrives. Counting words is not as simple as it may sound, and as it directly impacts business translations, we had to make sure this really works well and as expected. Your LingoHub project now delivers accurate word count based on the master locale.

You can get an accurate word count now per project and per language, and get progress updates also per resource file. Segments are how the developer of the software broke down the project, a segment can include between 0 and many words.

Your activities stream

Part of your dashboard actually, the activities stream has now received more attention and delivers a lot of functionality that will make teamwork on your projects easier.

Localization is teamwork, so here you can see what changed, when, who changed it, and where the changes happened - even how much has changed. The screenshot to the right shows the overview of the activities stream (wich an extra tab to recent comments), but you can also click "view all activities" to get a more detailed view of what changed in your project.

Additional updates

A new signup workflow We have given our signup workflow a thorough summer cleaning and we have redesigned how you sign up and log into LingoHub, to make this experience a more fluid one.

New Billing We improved the usability of our billing process a bit, and implemented a lot of security and performance fixes that you won't even see.

The new editor is now also switched to live, we detailed that in a separate blog post. The new editor also comes with revamped search and filtering functionality.

Conclusion

We recently spoke of "lean translation management" as something we are aiming for. To be lean, you need to cut down on unnecessary processes, and be able to concentrate on what matters to your team. With each update of LingoHub, we strive to get closer to the goal of making localization management the most hassle-free part of your product cycle imaginable. Localization management evolves around integration, ease of use, automation and quality assurance. We are sure this update improves your work in all these dimensions. We are looking forward to your feedback. If you're not using LingoHub yet, just give it a try, and let us know what you think right from within the app.
