What is the best TMS in localization? I’ve tried 13 different platforms and I’ll try to rank them according to my first experience – which one stood out with its homepage?

In this video, you’ll see my thought process behind the ranking of our favorite TMS tools. Everything is subjective, based on my own personal taste.


Andrej Zito 

What’s up guys, this is Andrej. We are back, it’s time to wrap up the series with the final rankings. According to my first experience, the way I’m going to approach this is I’m going to do three parts where on each one, I’m going to focus on a very specific area that I already experienced during my reviews, it will be the homepage, number one. Number two, the project management interface where you create a project and number three, it will be the online editor. And finally, using all these three different rankings, I’m going to try to put together one ultimate first experience ranking of these TMS tools.

Andrej Zito

Now, in the beginning, I mentioned that I tried 16 different TMS platforms. That is maybe true, but I’m going to exclude three of them from this ranking, started with Nitro. Nitro is an online translation service where you search just submit your text and you get translations back. So it’s definitely not a typical TMS platform. Second one, I’m going to exclude ILangL, ILangL. I don’t know how to say it, because it’s a connector. And last one, I’m going to exclude the very last thing that I had look at and that is Gridly. The reason for that is that I don’t consider it to be a typical TMS. Hopefully, I’m getting this right, it’s more of a CMS systems system. So that’s why we’re going to have 13 contestants entering this unbraided, those personal ranking based on the design and user experience and intuitiveness and how things look like because that is important for me. So with that being said, like I mentioned, this one, the very first one is going to focus on the homepage.

Andrej Zito

So it means if you are a person other than the marketer, if you are really the person who does localization hands on your part of the production team, there’s probably zero value for you in this video. Because homepage. Well. Once you sign up for a TMS, what you care about is how you can do your job right when you’re a translator, project manager, account manager, localization manager, whatever. Okay, homepage is just the first first date, right that you have with a PMS. So there’s probably not going to be a lot of value for you here. I do it is mainly because I like talking about design style. Homepage is the first thing that you see when you want to, let’s say, think about or decide which TMS to use, right? It’s what the company is telling us. And the reason for me why it’s important is other than what our dimension is that if you see in the previous videos, in many cases, what we’ve we’ve seen is that the experience from the homepage, consider expectations too high. But then immediately, as soon as you get into the UI, it just drops down and it just doesn’t look very consistent at all. So you know, because the whole series to me is focusing on the user experience and the design in the style and consistency, consistency consistency. That’s why I need to get this ranking of the homepage as well. So that in the end, I can compare how to rank up the homepage compares with their ranking of the other two things, the project management UI and the editor. So that’s why I’m doing this. And yeah, if you don’t like this, so that’s why I’m doing this. Anything else? What I wanted to mention, anything else that I wanted to mention, I don’t know, I think we’re ready to go right into it. So this is my process. This is my thought process. This is how I put the whole ranking together, it will be uncut. I think maybe I’ll only remove few of the things. So this is it. 13 different TMS platforms. How do they rank for me when it comes to their homepage? Memsource, Wordbee, memoq. Okay, good.

Andrej Zito 

We have reshuffled the thing. Okay, so now I can finally start. So let’s start first with Crowdin, Crowdin and what I remember. Yes, I was just checking the videos that I did previously. So I think I have a pretty good memory of how it looks like. Yes, my comments about this website were after looking at it after I did the first initial review is the funny thing that after I looked at my videos recently, there were some things that I spotted that I didn’t report on before and some of the websites actually looked a little bit more dull for me after some time. I don’t know why I was so amazed by them initially. And I think Crowdin would be one of those. Maybe it’s probably because, yeah, Crowdin is a good example. So now that I was doing some design for my own website, which also doesn’t look any spectacular, I think actually Crowdin would be the best comparison to my website. It’s very minimalistic, very little color, which makes it look a little bit more bland. So we do have some things here and there, it’s very normally I would call this clean, it still is clean. Don’t get me wrong on that. But just based on my experience, and based on the other things that we have on the tier list, so this is our tier list that are reshuffled just now. And you do understand one thing, the way I’m going to go about this is the this is basically the ranking against each other. So if I put something at the bottom, so the worst fear would be the D tier. It doesn’t mean that it’s like the worst thing ever. I think I did check some other websites, which then didn’t allow me to try out their TMS. And their websites were even worse than probably the worst thing that we’ll have here on the list, need to understand that this whole list will be real, I mean, relate it in relevance to the other things here. So it’s comparing these TMS against each other. So let’s say you have all the visual, TMS is good, it still means that there would be someone who would be probably worst compared to the others. But anyway, let’s continue with Crowdin. And I did take some notes before so Crowdin, looks bland doesn’t show product. It’s not much information, whereas back to the Crowdin. So yeah, I was also surprised by this think the animation here just quickly. These things here look good. This is okay, this this illustrations are okay, they’re on the color. But again, they look bland. And they don’t show anything from the UI. And if I’m not mistaken, the UI was not bad. Especially I remember the editor was good. This thing here is okay. Customers say that’s fine. Fine, fine, fine. This is also fine. So going back to our tier list, where I would probably start, I would put, because I have sort of an indication that indication of sort of an idea how the other TMS TMS is ranked and where I would put them think I would start with putting Crowdin to either B or C. And again, we’re only focusing on the website. I’ll think I’ll start with B. It’s kind of middle right? Now. Next we have as the language cloud problem is that as the language growth no longer exists.

Andrej Zito 

Now, it’s RWS Language Cloud. So they did change a few things. Some of the things like this one, this thing here still remains, they just change the color. Here, I’m not sure what I’m supposed to do if I’m supposed to refer to my old video, or look at the new thing. And I think, in order to be fair to the others, but I’m also looking at the other websites right now. Huh? So anyway, that’s the Language Cloud.

Andrej Zito 

Okay, back with. So what I remember about Language Cloud, yeah, so the hero section was not that great. Probably one of the poor ones. Maybe it’s because it’s just a sub page of the whole sdl.com. But yeah, it was it was it didn’t really stand out that much. And then there was a lot of these green. You remember the review? I was complaining about the green, especially this thing here. There’s a lot of stock images. And the here key of the buttons. Every button was just green, right. So it wasn’t any spectacular. Nothing spectacular when I look at this one, so they definitely fix the hero image, I mean, the the hero section slightly. At least color wise, it looks better. There’s still this big thing, I don’t know why this page looks very minimalistic. To me this is a lot of a lot of text. And again, it’s just the name of the tool, nothing special about it, you need to go through a lot of text. So when you open this, there’s nothing that catches your attention with the benefits that you’re going to get by using RWS Language Cloud. So in that sense, nothing much has changed. What can we translate more intelligently? Okay, and then we have some things here. I don’t know this part sort of blends into this one, maybe spacing out a little bit more with help it. And we can we have some stock images here? Of course, we had the horse showed the images. That’s what they used to do before. This thing at least changes the background color. Yeah. Okay. So without knowing too much, I can close this video. So compared to Crowdin, I think this is a tricky one. I think Crowdin is still better. So I will put SDL Language Cloud below that.

Andrej Zito 

Next one, let’s go to Phrase. And again, I’m going to actually look at the website, the current one, I don’t think they changed much. So everything is the same. So I remember I really liked the hero section. Then after the second part. I said it was a little bit too clunky. Is it the clunky, cluttered or messy, you know what I mean? It’s too, too much too many things together. But otherwise, color wise, it looks good. It looks fresh colors. The rest here is good. This is where I complain about this text me too much. And again, it’s too close to each other. And then my next comment was definitely about the reviews. So there’s a lot of these reviews, then we have reviews here and then we have more reviews here. So it’s pretty much very heavily relying on the social proof things this is the part where I bought there was supposed to be some text but I guess on purpose there’s not much text, which is funny thing because not only think about it, there’s so much whitespace here and there’s nothing else whitespace here. I also don’t like this part, but and I didn’t like this part of much she didn’t stand out that much. Otherwise it was pretty good. So compared to compared to these two, I think it’s still better than Crowdin so I would put it to tier A. Okay, let me look at my comments about Phrase. Nice first impression, good hero image, resection too crowded too crowded later on as well. So many reviews. Okay. Yeah, just what I mentioned right now.

Andrej Zito 

Next one, we have Transifex. Now remember Transifex, there was the one where on LinkedIn, I wrote that their product is just way better for the first time. The product is better than the homepage so still nothing changed here. I know that they mentioned on LinkedIn that they are working on this including this images that was the main thing that I pointed out on like these things here. I have absolutely no idea what it what it’s supposed to represent probably their clients and maybe hint that they worked on the localization but it’s really just like some dummy mock up pictures and it just looks bad it’s like. Yeah, looks bad. Huh. Hmm Okay, otherwise besides that, what else did we have here? Oh yeah, images.

Andrej Zito 

This website,if we don’t get here where we have probably I would assume stock images. This this website gives the same similar wild vibe as Crowdin which is not much use of color. And the color here is if you of course if you ignore the hero section as we go further. It’s it’s like this washed out colors. Be saturated. I think. Don’t quote me on that. And yeah, And the rest here is white. So yeah, I also don’t like the fact that the footer is the same color is almost either the same color or a very similar car color as to Section B for that. So it’s only separated by this one. So it looks very, very white. So this will be tricky think or maybe not even that tricky, because I think I would actually put it on par with the crowd. And when it comes to the homepage, does it make sense? What else is there right there? Transifex super weird hero images, hero section ugly. The rest is quite clinical and blunt. Yep, just what I mentioned right now. Okay. So that is Transifex.

Andrej Zito 

And I think this is going way faster than I thought. I thought I would be here debating for quite a long time where to put something but so far, it’s going pretty well.

Andrej Zito 

So I’m happy to continue on with Text United. Text United, I do remember that there were a few things which I’m pointing out. So starting from the top, I mentioned that there’s too much text, it’s not very visual. And this is another example that reminds me of my own website, this is where I need, I have a lot of work to do. And that is to make the site more visually appealing. So to me, this is so much text. This is moving. That’s nice effect, but not that complicated. And again, this effect, I think is lost, because there’s so much text, so much text that I think I was talking about these sections. Oh, this is something that changed. I was just looking at my videos that I did previously when I was doing the review. And I remember this guy was had a colorful image. And now and this guy had a black and white. So now I see that they made it consistent, which is good. Which is good, good. Good, good, good. Um, I didn’t like this part. To me, color wise, when you look at the section, especially with this one, this is sort of a new color. It’s I don’t know if it’s a different shade of the purple, or it’s some sort of a pinkish color. But this thing doesn’t go well together. I think this is where I said it was misleading. Because it doesn’t have five stars, as it’s suggested here. And this part is just this and this. Yeah, this is the ugly form. And this is again, the angled divider, which I have no idea why. Okay, we have something here in the left, top left corner, but it’s curved one. And the bottom right, we have the let’s say the opposite corner covered by something new. But it’s not consistent. It’s not another curved thing. It’s it’s a straight angle here. So I don’t understand this. Now. Where would I put Transifex?

Andrej Zito 

Transifex. I think Crowdin is still better than Text United. And think I did I look at it for the second time. I think Transifex I would maybe even could lower with Text United. I think Crowdin is, I think Crowdin might be better than Transifex and Text United. The first thing, the first glance, well, this is not my first lens. What am I talking about? I looked at it so many times. It’s just bland but otherwise, it’s okay. This one was okay, here it is good. This one, it’s not that great. And what was the last one? Transifex and this one was? Maybe I think I will put Transif- to I think maybe here and let’s keep Crowdin there together with Transifex and we’ll see later on.

Andrej Zito 

Okay, translate5. So this is the one. Oh, I think they changed something. I think these companies were announced before. This is again new approach.

Andrej Zito 

I would say to list out these companies. Right below the header. I think this did change something. I was complaining about the hierarchy of the text. I think that this was still slightly bigger than this one. But now, it looks almost the same. So go back. So I think it’s, it’s even worse now. And images here. It’s just like, light or something exploded in the background. I don’t know. So this is not good. FYI, this is an open source project. So we should be mindful about that. I don’t want to share my opinion on open source projects. But yeah, this. This to me is too crowded. This thing here looks very amateur thumbnail. The thing in the background, it’s like the thing that you would maybe create in Word with those weird gradients. Not a fan of that this. Again, not much spacing here on top. Then we have these these references. Social proof. Again, it’s on the background with the tree and the city and the glare behind it or to Halo or whatever it is. Not a fan of it. And log. Yeah. So where would I put this one? Would this be a B? Or would this be I think, well, is Text United still better? I think RWS is definitely better than this one. Is Text United better than it? I think it is. If I don’t look at this final form. Am I being too aggressive for this? Or no? I’m trying to think. Yeah, this is so so cluttered. Yeah, I’m actually going to put it to the final one. So that’s the we are 123456. We’re almost halfway through.

Andrej Zito 

Next we have Lokalise. Okay. So this is the one where I definitely like the illustrations start this see, this is a super clear hero section. You can’t miss it. This is, this looks so good. This looks good. This, I like this as well. So much whitespace, super clear. What can you do? I like this drawings that are not super perfect. This is again, good. The same style. I mentioned that I don’t know why this is blue. We have a new screen from the logo yet. But okay, this looks good. And this is just a final CTA. So we’re Lokalise. Is it better than Phrase? Would it be the S rank or no?

Andrej Zito 

Or is Phrase. What did I mention about Phrase? Too? Yeah. Yeah, I think I think I would put Lokalise to S rank compared to Phrase. What am I? What are my comments, nice illustrations as more balls a few new things that. Okay, show some product animation. What was not okay for me? Think it was the hovers? It doesn’t do anything about me. That’s okay. I think I was mentioning the interactive elements, but otherwise, it looks good. Yeah, I think to me, and the reason why I mentioned that it has more balls. What I mean by that is that it has more personality. So it’s not like the typical maybe nicely executed but still sort of standard template, SaaS homepage landing page. And to me what brings a personality are those illustrations and especially the fact that they are not perfect. So I would, for now, put Lokalise into S rank. The best one.

Andrej Zito 

Now, POEditor, POEditor if you watched some of the reviews that I did previously, you would notice that after I reviewed POEditor, I was pretty much comparing everything to POEditor.

Andrej Zito 

But, now we are mostly focusing on the website. And here’s the thing, this is what I mentioned before, maybe I’ll cut it out. I don’t know. I’ll mention it again. When I was looking at my videos, when I was thinking these notes here, when I was looking at the videos, I was sometimes surprised by some of the things that they said are good, but now after some time, I don’t consider them that good. But okay, going back to POEditor. POEditor was one of the things I think when I just scrolled through it, it’s not that much information here. Maybe that’s good. So, what I definitely like about POEditor is the colors. Colors are quite funky. So that’s what I like, again, I think I mentioned here because the UI is so good. I would rather see prefer to see the UI picture here rather than the part again, because it’s just the big logo. But that just means I think maybe they made this button slightly bigger. Did they raise the editor? Hey, guys, how are you? Hey, guys, how are you? No, I’m trippin. It looks to be the same. Yeah, this looks good. One thing that I noticed one thing that I think I didn’t pointed out last time was this part. Because you have these funky colors here. I think maybe it would be better if there were, if the next section following it was not so colorful as well, because then it’s all colorful. Maybe this purpose. I don’t know, to me, it would be better if it was maybe you were colors, different shades, different tints, whatever, it’s just a small thing. Then we have this bunch of all these clients. impressive list. Then here, they showed the UI. The other thing that I was complaining about is that when it’s here, you cannot see much you kind of like get a sneak peek. Yes, you can see what’s going on, but it’s not very clear. But when you open it, it looks very nice are here all these things here some tweets or whatever the this is? Start your software localization project now. So I think and they still have this thing here, which I didn’t get because see, this looks like two dots. So typically, normally when you have the carousel, each dot represents one slide or one change. And to me this looks like oh, there is actually okay. So there are three pages. Yeah, this two means it’s weird, but this was the only thing that I mentioned that I didn’t like now after second glance I think I would put this on par with Phrase. I still don’t think I still prefer Lokalise I think than POEditor.

Andrej Zito 

Maybe it’s the whitespace that’s tripping me off this text to me it’s too small. Yeah, I think it could be made slightly better at least for me. Okay, this is my personal thing. So I’m going to put POEditor right here.

Andrej Zito 

Next Smartcat. So this is the last PMS are being graded I reviewed. I was a little bit surprised that nobody from the team reacted to it. But that’s okay. I was shaking Smartcat again, and I think Smartcat is to me, probably the best website ever. I mean, not ever but among all these TMS and it’s actually something that I’m I I’m not doing it yet, but I have it in my backlog to use it as a reference I really like this website is is what I would call visually beautiful display of your UI. So these screenshots here are amazing. Colors are there’s good uses of usage of the colors. This thing here I already mentioned during the review, I like the way they did the reviews in a different way. Not just typical carousel. We have these different backgrounds. I love it. The hierarchy here is super clear, big titles. The text is nicely readable. So yeah, I don’t know what I pointed out. I don’t even know what I pointed out during interview. But by the way, this lady, of course, is also a stock image. I found her when I was looking for something from my own thing. But yes, without a doubt, Smartcat to me is number one. So I will put it up put it first here. But I’ll leave it there together with Lokalise now.

Andrej Zito 

Next XTM Cloud, this will be the tough one. So XTM Cloud. Quick refresh. This thing to me is like, the worst headers ever. This is slick, super cluttered, like I don’t know, whoever suggested this. This again, this whole hero section is wasted again, on… I mentioned this obsession with their logo. I don’t know why. Like, this is the big logo. And then they just put one text, which you cannot even copy. Because I guess it’s all part of the soul link. Yeah, I didn’t like that. This one was fine. I like the fact that they showed the product here. That was good. Again, this big section of here. This bar, I guess. Okay, XTM connectors, fine. This is the hierarchy, which I didn’t like. And this part, if you remember how the other let’s see the resources section of the homepage, look, look, look for the others. I think it’s still looked more polished. And let’s say consistent, the style looks consistent, more consistent. They are definitely using the same course here and there. But it looks slightly less consistent. And this is the part where I said that I have no idea why they would show a login screen to get someone excited about their app. So this will be a tough one. Crowdin, Transifex, I still think they are better. Is this C or D?

Andrej Zito 

I don’t think it’s D. Probably. But wait. Compared to wait. So this has changed RWS. Where is RWS? RWS now looks better than XTM I would say. So let me check Text United. Text United. Yeah, so watch extol the colors are a little bit off and the form. I hate it. Um Should I actually put Text United and XTM Cloud to the D? Is it? But I think it’s still better than translate5, right?

Andrej Zito 

This part was good. I don’t like this part. Okay. I don’t like the hero section. Like this. Steel connectors. This is okay. Okay. Okay. I mean, okay, maybe it’s not the same as translate5, but I wouldn’t put it any way higher. Definitely not Crowdin, Transifex. I think those are better. So I’ll put it into D or C. Okay. We have three more.

Andrej Zito 

Memsource. Memsource is the one that I reviewed the very first, I was already familiar with their website. So think about Memsources is that when I talked about clean SaaS templates for the homepage, I would say Memsource is executed on that. The best but my comment was that it still doesn’t have that personality. Which vocalizes so here all is good. The buttons, everything was good. This was good. This was nice and clean. The homepage looks very good when it comes to colors. This looks clean. This is how Get started now. Much easier to do this cover more. Yeah, and this is the block where I like their thumbnails or featured images. Now, where would I put it? I think it belongs to the category is for Phrase and POEditor it’s the it’s the ones that do it. Well yeah, I think definitely.

Andrej Zito 

Okay now Wordbee. Wordbee. So Wordbee, what I say about Wordbee? I think I mentioned the here key issues that I definitely don’t like this separator with like shadows That’s weird. Images. This is the funny thing because here you can technically think about it okay word we have some personal on it because they use their their, their how you call it in English. Not mascot mascot mascot something or whatever. Or it’s just to be I don’t even know their character. Wverywhere but um, yeah, and this drawing Seuss illustrations are kind of cute. That’s good. This I would not show that because this looks horrible. Even with the background, it’s like a complete mess. Alright, client portal. Now, where would I put this one?

Andrej Zito 

Okay, we need to look at the I don’t think so. Is Crowdin and Transifex better than Wordbee? I think they are. Let me look at Transifex. Transifex this right here? Transifex has the think it has the sections done better.

Andrej Zito 

XTM Cloud. Why did I put XTM Language Cloud so low compared to Crowdin and Transifex, right? Yeah.

Andrej Zito 

This is the part where I’m going to have to think a little bit. So far, it’s been going pretty well. Wordbee, Wordbee. Let me maybe compare to Crowdin. Where is Crowdin? Crowdin. Crowdin this definitely better. That’s for sure. Crowdin is better. Yes, that’s conflict. Now is Transifex better? Or is it the same thing? I think Transifex still better. So it means Wordbee needs to be C or D. I don’t think it deserves the I was quite critical to Wordbee but compared to this one

Andrej Zito 

Yeah, this is just so messy. This messy as much it’s not that messy. Not what’s up messy. So can I see? Probably Okay. I’ll do final review. So memoq final one. Okay, so I really like memoq. I had high expectations of it. I love the colors. I like these things. know what it is? But brown. This looks good. This strap this shawl thing I would say diverse. This looks good gender community transfer business. This section again. This is what I was talking about. See like all these things look like one consistent style except for this lady. What would I put it? I think it’s I think it’s on par. Is on par with Memsource? Is this S or A? I don’t think it’s S rank. For some of you, for those of you who don’t know, S rank is the best one. Of course that’s, that’s why it’s on the top. It’s like superb or sugoi. Okay. But what was actually wrong with this? What are my comments? Great course on functional issues. Testimonial not so nice.

Andrej Zito 

They fixed it this morning. Yeah.

Andrej Zito 

I still think I would probably put it to a I still think it’s it’s not where Smartcat is. I think Smartcat is more visual. And show us more of the product. We actually don’t see the product here at all. Markets markets, yes, market. This market this is just about and localize. Does the let’s say the standard think Witter style and personality thanks to their beautiful drawings. So maybe it’s just that the style is not speaking to me that much. It’s still nice. Of course, the colors are working great together. But I think it’s there where it should be. I think it’s tier A.

Andrej Zito 

So looks like we have the final rankings when it comes to the homepage design. So there will be two more videos where I’m going to bring the project management interface. And then probably the editor even though I’m not using the editor as a professional translator. And then we’ll do a final wrap up where I’m going to rank with TMS as a whole package. Again, focusing only on the design and my personal taste, and intuitiveness and consistency of the TMS. So Smartcat, Lokalise. I’m happy but I think they both belong to the top. Tier A these are all great homepages. There were just a few things that I didn’t like that didn’t speak to me. So that’s okay. Crowdin, Crowdin, Transifex. There were some issues among the two. Maybe I would say Crowdin is better slightly, but they’re more or less the same. They’re not on this level. And then we have SDL Language Cloud, which is weird to comment on right now. Not that it changed. Text United. Yeah, that was not the great. XTM Cloud not that great. Wordbee not that great. Hmm. Now this is this is where we maybe need to rethink this. And the only thing I’m thinking about is this is the new RWS better than these three? Words.

Andrej Zito 

At first glance, first glance it looks looks good.

Andrej Zito 

I really hate this site. I’m probably biased but I don’t like XTM’s website. And maybe I’m just trying to force myself to be nicer to Wordbee people. But I also don’t like this website. But it’s not that they do those things banned.

Andrej Zito  

Yeah, next night, it also doesn’t do I mean, except for this thing. So this, okay, maybe I should focus on the hero section and do it based on that. That sucks sundek approach. XTM Cloud sucks. Text United sucks when it comes to the hero or the first impression when you’re above the fold. What else do we have there Wordbee? Sucks. Transifex sucks as well. As do an RWS Language Cloud, it’s just it’s just a pitch walk. Oh I don’t know. Do we want to put more people here under the your no this is good. This is good. This is good shisha I think among these four in the seat here I would actually say that RWS is the best but that’s only because they have so much information here it’s not their homepage. Text United it only go like a bit. XTM I don’t like this. Like this. I don’t like this. I don’t like this like this. I don’t like this. Okay. That’s a lot of things that I don’t like. Is it biased? I’m probably biased. Wordbee.

Andrej Zito 

The hierarchy is just weird. I would actually say that Wordbee is better than XTM Cloud, which is surprising to me.

Andrej Zito 

Okay, can I try to remove myself from this question? Try to look at it objectively. I still don’t like this like wrestling person hears. Oh.

Andrej Zito 

Looks like I don’t know. I just I just don’t know. To me. It looks like a big mess. I would even say Yeah. It’s a big mess. Electrons like five.

Okay, now what do I do with SDL Language Cloud? This looks decent. I mean, it looks sort of decent like, piece. I would keep it here. Text United. Do I move it down? Or no? I think Text United looks more will be here. Except for this part. So I keep it there. Not final question of the day would be? Do I keep it there? What is or no? I’m not a fan of it.

But at least this separation is good. Is SDL language called better than the Wordbee? Yes. Visually? Yes. Even though they have done they don’t have that much information. So maybe let me look at Text United. Text United better than the Wordbee.

If they didn’t fuck up the hero section, then it would be easier. Just good go. Hate that form. Hmm. I think there are pros and cons for both. Okay, I’ll keep it like this. This is the final list when it comes to the homepage, okay. Tier S on the top, Smartcat, Lokalise. Tier A. Phrase, POEditor, Memsource, memoq. They all have great websites. There were just so some things that I didn’t like. Tier B. Crowdin and Transifex. A few things which I don’t think are good when it comes to Crowdin.

Wait, was it too harsh and Crowdin? The hierarchy looks good. Maybe I was. Yeah, I think Crowdin is better than Transifex. But I would still I would still not put Crowdin to these ones. These ones really do the carbon sink and everything well. So yeah, that’s fine Crowdin, Transifex. D or C. SDL Language Cloud that’s that’s a tricky one. Text United, Wordbee fine. And final tier D, translate5 and XTM Cloud. And that’s it.

That is the end of the first official ranking of Andrej Zito when it comes to the homepage of the different TMS platforms that we have in the industry. Let me know below in the comments. If you agree or not, what would be your let’s say top five, what would you put into the S tier or A tier? If you want, you can also create your own ranking, there will be a link in the description. I created this as a template. So everybody can use this. It’s only limited to the 13 TMS platforms that I put there. But I think you can also add some of your own if you want to play with it around. If you liked this video, don’t forget to give it a thumbs up and share with your friends, colleagues, anyone who might be interested in this. But definitely be sure to subscribe so you can be here to witness the next three videos as we go deeper into what I would say is more important when it comes to making decisions. And that is how the project management UI looks like how easy it is to create projects. And then finally how you can use the online editor. And then finally, we’re going to have the ultimate final ranking of Andrej Zito’s first experience of the different TMS platforms can continue. So stay tuned and I’ll see you in two weeks. Bye bye!
