Some offers include discounts for City Guide’s users.

Translation Center is an environment that allows to translate applications. Translators choose their language, the assigned project/application and can translate texts and strings of it.
All translations are verified and then, added to the application. The translation center has been created in such a way, so a translator can just log into the system in a browser and start translating.
Creating the Translation Center was one of the most difficult challenges we took in order to minimize the time to hand over the application and to increase the comfort of the co-operation between a translator and a developer.
It required creating an environment in which even people who don’t know technology can work without any problems and understand limits imposed by computer systems. The real challenge was adding a context in which each phrase should be translated. The existence of this system shortens the time needed to translate an application.
