The Weblate Way

We love localization and libre software enough to build a privacy-respecting localization tool and provide it as copylefted libre software. It all started in 2012.

February 2012—Michal Čihař

Looking for a Pootle alternative

…The key feature is full integration with Git. Changes are committed to a local Git branch and easily merged back.

March 2012—Michal Čihař

Announcing Weblate

…After about a week of development, Weblate is announced; a web-based translation tool with tight Git integration.

April 2012—Michal Čihař

Why Weblate?

Instead of settling with an existing solution, Weblate was made to have:
◦ Git integration
◦ Translator attribution
◦ Handling of several branches
◦ Displaying context
◦ Sane merging of translations
◦ Consistency checks

Today—Michal Čihař

Weblate grows and the future is open to new opportunities.
