One reason we're moving off of Transifex is that they anounced that they're applying for a patent.

I noticed while searching through my email that I had sent in a patch to Transifex while working at CC... and I had signed a CLA. :\

I never shoulda done that! Too bad I can't go back and time with what I know now!

What will you use instead? What do you recommend for translation / i18n generally?

@wolftune I still do it the old-fashion way: po files, Emacs + Emacs po-mode. I use grep to search the translations. Doing it since 2008 for the Bulgarian GNOME translation. It is not that hard.

Side note: Cloud+platform+web-based software usually ends in tears for the users.

@wolftune We are currently in-progress moving away from transifex.

Not clear what we might move to for sure yet. It might be the GNU pootle server.
