Context in localization

If you deal with localization and expect accurate translations, remember – context is the king. The more context you give your contributors, the better translations you get. It seems like a clear and simple idea, yet often translators are left to work out of the context. As a consequence, there are lots of back-and-forth interactions and missed deadlines you could avoid.

To stay agile during localization, invest some time and provide context before the translation starts. This will pay off in the long run. This article includes a brief overview of all the ways to provide context in Crowdin. So that you can always be sure your translators have an excellent work environment.
