Node.js app internationalization and localization

Node.js is a tool for executing JavaScript in a variety of environments. JavaScript had humble beginnings as a language that lived only in web browsers, but the Node.js project has expanded its reach and helped make it the most popular programming language in the world. Node.js extends the creative potential of people with web development experience, enabling a new generation of developers to create servers, command-line tools, desktop apps, and even robots.

Best way to localize Node.js apps

The first step is to extract the text to translate into language files. This process is called internationalization. The most popular i18n library for Node at the moment is i18n-node. It can be used to extract the text to translate into JSON files.

Once you have internationalized your Node.js app, use a translation software localization tool such as WebTranslateIt to manage your localization workflow.

It is easy to translate a Node.js app with WebTranslateIt. Create a project, upload your source language file in the File Manager and translate it on the Translation Interface.

The tools included in WebTranslateIt, such as Batch Operations, the Translation Memory or Machine Translation can help you translate that file automatically, faster and cost effectively.
