Free and Pro versions are available
Loco accounts are free and you can start using it straight away. The free plan has some limits, but it's perfectly good for at least a couple of small to medium sized projects. Once you've finished a project, you can always delete it and keep going for free.
If you outgrow your free project quotas, we have a flexible range of paid plans for high volume usage.
Most things you can do via the Loco dashboard can also be done via the API, letting you automate as much of your workflow as you need. The most valuable function of the API is pulling translation files into your software during build or deployment processes.

Only if you want
Loco integrates with several machine translation providers including DeepL, Google Translate and Microsoft Translator. Using these services requires an account with the relevant provider. Loco subscriptions don't include any usage of third party APIs.

You won't have to worry about any of the technical aspects of translating software. The Loco dashboard offers a convenient user interface for translating texts. Your clients or colleagues can simply log in and all your work will be in a format they can use.
The Loco dashboard includes tools for tracking progress and assigning tasks to other team members. You'll always be on top of what's been translated and can ensure your developers have the latest content in the right format.
Loco isn't a replacement for whatever you use to manage editorial content. It's aimed at translating the parts of your site or app that a CMS can't help with.
If you use a platform with customizable themes (like WordPress) Loco can help you manage the translation of your theme and plugins. We even have a WordPress plugin that you can use without a Loco account.
