One of my projects uses software developed in-house to gain translations from the community. It's functional, we're fully translated in 8 languages and partially translated in another 11, but I'd like to find out if there are better tools available.

I also think it would be useful to have a list of the best translation tools available as per the needs of an open source project (where some translators will make a small number of poor quality contributions).

Reading similar meta questions, it's unclear if this question is on topic.

Is it on topic? And if so, how can I ask the question to make sure it doesn't get (many) close/down votes?


Any questions that ask for software, libraries and apis, and other tools for open projects are off-topic. You can find a little bit of buzz about here:

Should we rethink software recommendations?

    An answer with 3 upvotes (one of them was mine and I would like to remove it but it's not possible) is not an authoritative meta decision in my opinion. – Abhi Beckert Aug 25 '15 at 21:43

    @AbhiBeckert You can flag it for mod attention in that case :) – Zizouz212 Aug 25 '15 at 21:44

I would say it's not; it's far more at home on website recommendations or software recommendations. I don't think we should do tool or service recommendations at all.
