Lokalise Companion App

Mobile app localization

One of the strong sides of Lokalise is app localization. To showcase several of our features for mobile platforms, we have released Lokalise Companion App for iOS. The prerequisite for using the app is to have an account in Lokalise.

Live Edit Module in focus

In this version we demonstrate our Live Edit Module. The Module provides live screen context for translators, and pixel-precious real-time text updates — for testers.

Share it with your product managers, copywriters, translators and QA managers as a demo to play with. This is another step on the way to getting the maximum out of Lokalise.

How to use

  1. Install the app on your iPhone or iPad.
  2. Launch and follow the instruction from the cards.
  3. Enjoy!
