The differences between
Lingohub vs Lokalise

Lokalise is one of the providers of translation management services for businesses worldwide. If you would like to find a solid alternative to this product, let us compare the features of Lingohub vs. Lokalise below:

Empower small teams

Lingohub offers affordable pricing options for small teams. From the first plan, your team can access all the features, including the most common integrations like GitHub, GitLab, and Bitbucket, and CAT tools like context images (screenshots), translation memory, glossary, etc.

Lokalise provides screenshots, a glossary, and translation memory only from the second paid plan - Essential ($230/month)

Pay for things you need  

At Lingohub, we provide flexibility not only for localization management but for pricing policy as well. All the features will be available for your team regardless of your chosen pricing plan. But if your team needs additional things like machine translation characters, Figma plugin, or so on, you can buy it separately as an add-on without changing your subscription. Moreover, you can pay monthly for the add-on if you do not need to use it for the entire year.

The Lokalise has a different approach, and, for instance, if you need access to the Figma plugin, you should use the Pro plan (from $830.)

Control for the translation process from 0% to 100%

Keep track of all processes. Lingohub provides a set of management features that provide a comprehensive overview of the localization:

  • The dashboard with general data combines notifications,
the latest orders, and projects;

  • The separate tab with all text edits allows a quick understanding of who, when, and what did;

  • Statuses ensure total control of the life cycles of each text segment. You can appoint two statuses for source segments (draft and approved) and five for target segments (new, prefilled, draft, translated, approved).

Style guides to standardize communication with users

Make your team speak in one tone of voice. Create different style guides for user groups just inside the Lingohub application based on categories, age ranges, etc. Indicate the desired grammatical person, vocabulary type, and formality, provide the text examples and be sure your texts are uniform.

Style guides are available for any pricing plan. 

Full team management, including costs reports

Lingohub provides 360-degree management of all localization processes, including costs. Just fill in the standard and specific rates (based on effort and language pairs) - and the platform will do the rest for you.

You will never think about manually creating transactions or pricing calculating - all of these generate automatically based on the specified parameters for each team member.

With Lingohub, you always have all the data at hand and can ensure 100% transparency of all the financial processes.

Glossary with extended file support and terms matching

Unlike Lokalise, Lingohub term base supports CSV and TBX file formats. That means you have one more option for the files import and export. TBX files simplify the distribution and maintenance of terminology databases. All the actions are one-clicking, so you can quickly create the term bases or download the existing ones.

Also, with Lingohub, you have extended matching rules for each term (fuzzy, prefix exact, custom). That means the system recognizes more terms and suggests more options for your team. Additionally, the Lingohub term base allows adding more than just a description, namely images, usage status, grammatical gender/number, term type, etc., to simplify the context provided for translators.

Divide and manage texts based on their types   

Most likely, you are faced with a situation when the texts in one project differ. And you get the challenge: how to work with them instantly or highlight them for management or collaborative work.

Lingohub offers a simple and practical solution - labeling. Quickly separate and identify the texts inside one project to simplify the localization process. You can create as many labels as your projects need and apply them manually or automatically.

Lokalise provides the ability to add tags to the keys, not a text segment.
