Came across this app on Hacker News for helping you translate and localise your app by providing a neat dashboard to share with translators, coworkers, friends, family etc to translate strings online before bringing them back into the app via the command line. Video of it in action here...

@ay8s This is awesome! Next step is surely an integration with Google Translate to suggest translations? I was kind of surprised when it ended up being manual translation at the end of the video.

@jamsusmaximus, Thanks for the feedback! This is definitely in our blacklog and will be rolled out in the near future. Having automatically generated translation suggestions speeds up the whole translation process a lot.

@niklasbegley @jamsusmaximus for short strings, yes definitely! For long descriptions, it's better to have a translator :)

@linhpham24 @jamsusmaximus You're definitely right. Machine translations is great for quick suggestions for translators, but the longer the text the more inaccurate things get. In the end, every translation, short or long, still needs to be checked by a human :)

hmmm interesting enough idea and yes automated translations would be a great idea with a human element to confirm they are ok
