Thumb 566 1 is a tool we build for Ruby on Rails developers who want to easily translate their applications.

Instead of translating inside the code, the developer just has to use a specific syntax around the source language text, then execute a command to synchronise with the translators.

This ease of use, and the fact that the translation interface was customised for translators and marketing team (for copywriting) speed up the whole translation workflow.

Some numbers:

  • Several hundreds of paying customers.
  • 500 000+ segments in the system.
  • 110+ tests for a code coverage of 84% on the gem.
  • 280+ tests for a code coverage of 70% on the web application.
