What our clients say

We have localized over 1,500 projects and produced 1,000+ videos. Let's make something special for you too!

/static/gallery-feedback-images/

During the rapid growth phase of any startup, you appreciate anything that saves you time. And with a growing international user base, translation quality affects the way people feel about the reliability of your company.
With Alconost + Crowdin we loved the way translation is guaranteed to be accurate and context-appropriate. Above all, we valued having the same team working with us over time - it’s important when you have a lot of industry-specific words. They can speed your work up the same way they did ours.

App In the Air

Timur Akhmetgareev, Co-Founder

/static/gallery-feedback-images/

Nitro is extremely helpful when it comes to localisation for us. Allowing for quick turnaround, with great support, the results are of high quality. It's a core part of our process.

Kasedo Games

Christian Woolford, Producer

/static/gallery-feedback-images/

Given the volumes we need to translate weekly and the number of languages we localize our website and apps into, Alconost offered us the best solution in terms of flexibility, pricing, and quality among the translations agencies we were considering. The quality of the translations is quite high with the proofreading service that Alconost provides. Our Alconost manager is one of the nicest people I've ever met. They always pay attention and try to meet our translations needs in the best way possible. They were especially helpful during our transition to Lokalise for app localization, so we were able to build and maintain a consistent and reliable localization process.

Movavi Software Limited

Natalia Bogorad, Head of Editorial

/static/gallery-feedback-images/

We used to work with freelance translators via a crowdsourcing platform, but the process was lengthy and complicated. With Nitro it’s easy for us to translate texts for our games into multiple languages simultaneously: we just copy the text, specify the languages needed, and receive our translated texts within 24 hours!

NARCADE

Ekin Usumi, Community manager

/static/gallery-feedback-images/

We have been working with Alconost team for many years and never had an issue and with the time the quality of localization services only increased.

Planner 5D

Matt Kryvashein, CMO

/static/gallery-feedback-images/

Fast, quick, and responsive to our changing requirements for various projects.

Airalo

Marius Royal, Content and Community Manager

/static/gallery-feedback-images/

I contacted Alconost when I needed to translate a game into ten different languages. The translation was completed very quickly and in a format that was convenient for me. I’d also like to mention their managers, who are very friendly and always willing to help. They were very kind and helpful, and I enjoyed interacting with them. All in all, my experience working with Alconost was extremely positive.

FAQ

Who are your translators and how are they selected?

All translations at Alconost are performed by professional translators who are native speakers.

We have approximately 700 professional native-speaking translators on our team, who specialize in a broad range of fields. We always try to assign one or more dedicated translators to your project and work specifically with these translators on a continuous basis. This is useful if you have a large project that is updated periodically, you need to use consistent terminology, or you simply like a particular translator's style. If the translator changes for some reason, they will provide the glossary and translation memory to the new translator to ensure consistency of terminology and style in future updates.

How localization works with Alconost?

After we receive an application for your project, we'll immediately assign a manager who will:

  • Examine the texts, your requirements, and any notes about the translation
  • Calculate the cost of the localization project and approve a budget with you
  • Select translators with the required background
  • Ensure the correct formatting of the finished translations
  • Monitor compliance with the deadlines for completing the project
  • Hire editors for the project to proofread the translations (optional)
  • Draft all required documentation (agreement, invoice, and certificate)
  • Answer your questions and do everything to ensure that you are satisfied with both the localization process and the result.

To help us calculate the cost of localization, please request a quote with the target languages that you would like to localize your website into.

What localization TMS (translation management systems or platforms) are you working with?

Our first choice is the cloud-based translation platform Crowdin. It allows us to manage localization projects in real time. You can:

  • Upload string resources in any format (.resx, .po, .strings, etc.) either manually or through the API
  • Assign translators and editors
  • Track the translation and editing process for your project
  • Leave comments and discuss questions directly with the translators and editors
  • Create glossaries
  • Manage the translation memory
  • Export string resources once the translation is complete

We also work on other localization platforms, such as GitLocalize, Phrase, Lokalise, Memsource, memoQ, Smartcat, WebTranslateIt, Transifex, OneSky, POEditor, Trados, and many more.

What file formats do you work with?

We can work with any file type and suggest customized integrations for your convenience.

Here are the most popular file formats for our projects:

Android .xml, iOS .strings, .stringsdict, Windows .resx, .po, .pot, .php, .json, .ini, .csv, .js, .plist, .xlf, .xliff, .stf, .dita, .ditamap, .toml, .gotext.json, .arb, .vdf, .wxl, .nsh, .properties, .dtd, .ts, .rc, .resw, .resjson, .yml, .htm, .html, .xhtml, .haml, .txt, .md, .xht, .idml, .docx, .svg, .pdf, .xaml, .srt, .vtt, .sbv, .mif, .idml, .rtf, .ppt, .odt, .ods, .odg, .odp, .wiki, .flsnp, .flpgl, .fltoc, .md, .xht.

We also work with other file formats and proprietary systems. Let's discuss your project!

What languages do you translate into?

We translate into more than 100 languages, including the most popular (English, Chinese, Japanese, German, French, Spanish), and rarer ones, and even dialects.

We can find a translator in almost any language that the client needs, depending on his product and goals. Sometimes localization into niche languages can offer better prospects than localization into mainstream languages.

To help us calculate the cost of localization, please request a quote with the target languages that you would like to localize your website into.

How is the localization cost calculated?

We work with over 100 languages. The cost of localization depends on the language pair (the source and target languages) involved, the volume of text, and the number of repetitions.

The cost also reflects the localization method. For example, it costs a little more to translate within your CMS than to translate or localize files through a cloud-based translation platform.

The cost of localization is calculated at a rate per 1000 characters, including spaces. When calculating the volume of text to be translated, we do not include HTML element tags.

To help us calculate the cost of localization, please request a quote with the target languages that you would like to localize your website into.
