The Powerhouses: Locize and Supertext

Locize, a trailblazer in software localization, has earned its reputation as a go-to platform for developers and companies looking to enter new international markets.

Supertext, on the other hand, has carved out its own niche as a leader in translation, copywriting, and proofreading services. With a carefully curated team of over 3,000 professional translators and copywriters, Supertext has remained steadfast in its mission to free the world from bad copy and ensure that brands' identities remain intact as they venture into new linguistic territories.
