Sounds good? Well it looks good too.

Poedit features

Check your translations for accuracy

Make sure you don’t miss a token or mistype a variable. Poedit keeps an eye on your gettext files and notifies you about any potential translation issues. You can also check the word count and monitor your translation progress through the detailed Poedit reports.

Keep your files and templates updated

Whenever there’s a source code change, it’s easier to update a PO file using Poedit. The app helps developers match the output translations with the latest version of the source code. Extract strings from the source code and apply the changes using Poedit’s intuitive approach.

Follow Poedit’s suggestions

Let the app give you suggestions and hone your translations accordingly. It’s easier when there are two of you translating — you and Poedit with its state-of-the-art machine learning functionality. Translated strings are stored locally, so you don’t have to worry about privacy.

Pre-translate entire files

Poedit is a helpful tool to keep by your side throughout string-by-string translations. But that’s only part of the beauty. The app can also help you pre-translate everything using the history of your own translations as well as a large user-contributed database.

Collaborate on your projects

If you do localizations, you probably work with Crowdin. So here’s the good news for you. The most widely known localization management platform works with Poedit. You can access all of your saved projects and handle translations right from the app.

Integrate with WordPress

Poedit works with WordPress plugins and themes. Thanks to FTP support, you can translate both locally and remotely. Instead of working with the locally saved copies of plugins and themes — although it’s always the option — you can connect to the server and apply changes from there.
