Why translate5.

What makes translate5 unique.

Your interests are our objective.

Nowhere else in the translation industry will you find a Translation Management System that puts the interests and rights of its users at its heart the way translate5 does, in its mission statement.

Actively maintained.

The only complete cloud open source translation system for the commercial translation sector that is actively maintained.


No-one can buy out an open source package and close it down.

Open source software can always be continued by others, even if the main developers ever lose interest for any reason.

Proprietary systems can always be closed down – open source will always be available and can be maintained.


translate5 is the only cloud open source translation system for the commercial translation sector that is community-driven.

The power of community.

  • Costs for features can be shared within the community, which makes it more likely and cheaper for everyone involved that great new features will be developed that the companies within the community need for their own customers.
  • The software is driven by the input of ideas from many different companies – which makes it stronger.
  • Feedback comes from many different sides and is listened to frankly.
  • Contributing to the code and taking part in development makes the software stronger – yet everything is always checked by the lead developers of translate5 at MittagQI.

Independent software company.

The independent software company (MittagQI) in the heart of the community centers its main business interests on translate5, and is concerned with code quality, best practice architecture, future-orientated road-maps, support and consulting.

You decide.

Having to wait a long time for your requests or features is a thing of the past:

The business model of translate5 is based on support and development contracts, where users can decide directly where their money goes.

Help is provided as soon as possible. Features can be ordered at any time and are provided in the main software if it makes sense to do so for the main road-map, or as company-specific plugins otherwise.
