Software localization (translation) of Web-based projects

Hosted by Jan Čižmár

Software localization (translation) of Web-based projects could be a nightmare for many developers. However, this time-consuming process can be solved easily thanks to the free software tool Tolgee. Jan Cizmar will guide you through with his workshop named Web Application Localization Without Tears. He will show you how to manage localization texts in simple UI or how to take the advantage of the in-context localization feature, so you can just click & translate the text easily.

“The more languages your software knows, the more of a satisfied users you have". However, current software localization in modern JS frameworks and other software is complicated and fairly time-consuming for all involved participants. Thanks to the in-context localization feature of free software project Tolgee, this tool offers easier localization process, more relevant translations delivery and finally less work for developers.

The workshop will contain live demo where I would like to describe using Tolgee JavaScript software development kits on simple React.js Web application example. However, Tolgee is currently compatible with other frameworks such as Angular, Svelte, Vue.js or Next.js.

Participants will learn easy localization workflow using by Tolgee tool, simple localization texts management, how to integrate Tolgee into Web app in less than one minute, how to take advantage of different Tolgee features as e.g. automatic generation of screenshots or in-context localization.


Jan is founder and CTO of Czech startup Tolgee which aims to simplify the process of software localization thanks to the free software licence. He studied Applied Informatics at Masaryk University and has more than ten years of experience with software development of different projects. With all the gained knowledge he decided to found Tolgee in March 2021 to deliver smart and simple software on his own way.

He's focusing on development in strictly typed languages like Java or Typescript as he finds it most responsible way to develop sustainable and scalable codebase. He likes to find ways to keep code clean and without boilerplate duplicities and he hates being copy-pasting monkey.
