Oportun identified the strategic need to expand its customer engagement by incorporating localization into its previously English-only mobile app. This transformation was essential for Oportun to meet its commitment to providing accessible and inclusive financial services, thereby responding to the specific language needs of a large segment of its users. With no prior experience in localization for its mobile app, Oportun required an efficient and hassle-free solution to streamline the translation process, which is where Transifex comes in.

“Our app’s localization would be a non-starter without Transifex”
