Available in four different editions, depending on your requirements.


The version to be used by localization managers. Translation packages created using the Team edition can be edited using the free Translator edition. This means that entire projects can be sent to external translators using only one Team edition license.
Desktop translation cog


This version shares the same functionality as the Team edition, but translation packages can also be automatically synchronized with translation agencies and translators via an FTP/SFTP server or Box cloud storage platform. Passolo string lists can also be published directly to Trados Enterprise, Trados Team and Trados GroupShare.
Cog translation cursor


The version to be used on build servers, in development teams or by localization engineers. If translation agencies are using their own version of Passolo, the localization manager is able to export translation packages (partial projects) for the translation agencies.
Document round circles


A free editing environment for translation packages that have been created using the Team edition or Collaboration edition. It contains all translation and production functions, visual localization and tight integration with all RWS translation solutions. The Translator edition doesn’t include project management functions for analyzing source files or creating target files.
