One question often asked by product teams localizing their apps and websites is “Where do I find translators?” While you have the flexibility to translate your content in a number of ways when using our platform, ordering translations through Transifex has proven to be quite popular since its debut. And starting today, you can order translations from TextMaster directly within Transifex.


Through a community of 65,000+ authors, translators, and editors, TextMaster provides translation, copywriting, and proofreading services in 9 languages: French, Spanish, German, Italian, Portuguese, Dutch, Polish, Chinese, and Russian.

So What’s Unique About Them?

For one, the TextMaster team places an emphasis on the quality of their work and your customer experience. All their translators are native speakers vetted through a rigorous testing process. On top of that, TextMaster has dedicated language managers who oversee the quality of translations and project managers who make sure projects finish in a timely manner.

Two, TextMaster is truly affordable. Translations start at just $0.039/word and go up to $0.079/word, depending on the quality level you need. That means for a typical mobile app with 1,000 to 1,500 words and a 500 word app store description, it’d cost $300 to $400 to translate everything into 5 languages. Certainly worth the investment considering how many more people you will reach.

And last but not least, being headquartered out of Belgium, TextMaster has lots of experience working with large and small companies throughout Europe, where many of you are located or plan to expand to. They also have translators who can translate content from one European language to another.

Getting Started

With this integration, we’ve done the hard part of finding and vetting translators. Now getting your content translated is as convenient and accessible as ever.

All you have to do is click “Order translations” in the dashboard, select TextMaster as the vendor, pick the language(s) you want your content translated to, and add instructions for the translators.
Then sit back, relax, and before you know it, translations will be delivered back to you.

Order professional translations

And with projects and subscriptions tied to organizations in Transifex, any organization administrator can place orders for translations, not just the project owner.

Go ahead, give it a try and let us know what you think!
