Thanks to translate5’s open source nature and its flexible architecture, we can customize and extend our processes flexibly. Fantastic! Exactly what we need.

Michael Schneider

We have supported, used and accompanied translate5 since the very beginning in 2011 because we are convinced of the innovative power of the tool and of the expertise of the translate5 team, not only in terms of their developer know-how but especially in terms of their knowledge of the translation industry.

Per Harbo Sørensen

At Transline, we are currently planning to use the tool for software texts with pixel-based length restrictions.
This is a completely new and innovative approach and will make the translation process in this challenging specialist field a lot easier.
