From the first day I started using GlotPress for translating WordPress into Dutch and Frisian, I fell in love with how GlotPress facilitates the actual process of translating. Before GlotPress I relied on PoEdit, but I felt very little love for how PoEdit worked. GlotPress on the other hand, as a webtool, makes translating software as/with a team an actual possibility.

GlotPress is based on BackPress, but it is still in early stages of development. Stable enough to provide us with a platform for teams to translate, but it’s certainly not a finished product. As a translation expert / moderator on the StudioPress forums I installed a GlotPress installation for translating Genesis, and when Joost de Valk from Yoast.com mentioned to me he was working on making his WordPress SEO Plugin fully translated, I suggested to him he’d start using GlotPress as well.
