How are costs calculated?

Costs are calculated based on these metrics:


For each word in your project, excluding versions. The cost for the number of words is recurring every month. The charge for words reflect costs for storage and network usage.


Every modification done via editor (added, updated, deleted, copy) manually or via file import or API gets counted (excluding save missings, translation orders and overwriting versions). This cost reflects the usage of locize and enables us to charge less in times you use locize less.


Download of translations from our CDN to your users get accounted. This costs are only charged if you directly use the translations served from our CDN.

Private Downloads

Regular downloads are public. So those translations would be visible to public even during development. To avoid leaking confidential informations during development (eg. new features) you can use private publish options which only enables downloads using an API key - so the translations are not publicly accessible.
Private downloads occur when using the "Fetch private namespace resources" endpoint or the "Fetch/filter the (unpublished) namespace resources" endpoint.

While fixed plans are more common - variable prices are fair.

cost comparison

There are no permanent big raises of costs which were introduced by having to switch to a bigger plan because your plan reached a limit or because you needed some feature that was locked behind a paywall.

What does this mean for you?

  • Never being forced to be auto upgraded from a $49 to a $199 plan just because you cross a limit (words, pageviews, languages, users) just marginally (your real usage would be around $50 - but the plan forces you to use the "large plan" starting at $199).
  • Never pay a bigger plan just because of that one feature you need most but was not included in your current plan
  • Costs are based on your projects size and success
  • Costs adapt to your usage: having months with less modifications (usage of locize app) you pay less
  • Costs grow slower the bigger your project gets
  • No limit on users
  • No limit on languages
  • All the features - no paywalls
