Faster localization of software

The "What You See Is What You Get" (WYSIWYG) editing approach displays software menus and dialog boxes in the relevant editors in just the same way as when the software is running, for maximum translation quality.

Reuse your translation resources as effectively as possible during software localization. 

Passolo is tightly integrated with our leading translation software, Trados Studio, MultiTerm, Trados Team and Trados Enterprise, giving you full access to existing translation assets and terminology glossaries.

Take control of software translation projects and improve communication and collaboration between translators, reviewers and engineers by leveraging comprehensive project management. 

And with our Passolo Collaboration Edition, you can instantly incorporate updates from your development cycle into your translation projects to reduce the workload on localization managers and translators, keeping projects up to date.

Extensive compatibility file formats

Enable easier translation of any graphical user interface for mobile applications, on-premise or SaaS products, as well as consumer electronics and engineering machines, with an extensive range of file formats that stay compatible with the latest Microsoft technology, file filters and languages.

Customization and integration

Build your own ideal software localization environment by developing add-ins using the Passolo Software Development Kit or downloading third party add-ins. 

Passolo can also be automated via the command line and integrated into a build server environment, while the Component Object Model and the integrated development environment, allow for the automation of recurring tasks or complete integration with external systems.

Increased translation quality

Translators and localization managers can take advantage of the widest range of testing functionality in the market.

Built-in quality assurance monitors every text entry and highlights any errors such as truncated texts, overlapping control elements and missing access keys. Tests can be carried out on selected sections of text or even the entire project.
