Transifex Live extends our vision of making localization easy and accessible.
Menlo Park, CA (PRWEB) October 07, 2014
“We’re excited to be working on this new technology stack, which gives so much power and control to the customer over how their localized content is delivered to their end users,” says Dimitris Glezos, founder and CEO of Transifex. “Transifex Live extends our vision of making the localization process easy, giving our customers two different ways to localize: traditional localization with our core platform and APIs, and now, a more flexible process for web-based content using Transifex Live.”
Transifex was founded in 2009 after being incubated while Glezos participated in Google’s Summer of Code. The company raised $2.5 million earlier this year in a seed-funding round led by New Enterprise Associates (NEA). The company is at its heart both global and digital—with Engineers on two continents and customers in over 30 countries representing over 20,000 projects with 200,000 users, localizing content in more than 100 languages.
Transifex has always made its offerings free to the Open Source community resulting in localization projects such as Creative Commons, Open Stack, Django, Bitcoin and Joomla. Linus Torvalds himself, the father of Linux, uses Transifex to manage localization of his personal Scuba website. Prior to it’s first round of funding earlier this year, Transifex had been bootstrapped, growing primarily through word-of-mouth from the developer community.
