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 its first round of funding earlier this year, Transifex had been bootstrapped, growing primarily through word-of-mouth from the developer community.
