For a non-tech-savvy person, creating an SRX file with the segmentation rules might become a time-consuming task. You need to go through the list of specifications and compose the rules using the XML vocabulary. On the other hand, merging and splitting the strings manually might take an even longer time. Luckily, there’s now an intuitive way to add custom segmentation rules, test, and apply them to similar strings automatically.
In this post, we’ll take a closer look at content segmentation, discuss why it is important in localization, and give you step-by-step instructions on how you can quickly add custom segmentation with the Segmentation Rules Generator app.
At the end of the year, when achievements are evaluated, and the big goals ahead are all set, we start to look for ways to optimize the usual processes. It’s a great time to rethink how we are doing things daily, and localization processes are not an exception. There’s always a place for improvement.
In localization, we believe productivity depends on how many routine tasks you can automate and the technology you use to do the rest of them. We’ve assembled a collection of Crowdin Apps to help you with the full-scale management of your localization workflow. All of them are free to use and can be installed for your Crowdin and Crowdin Enterprise projects.
Translating your website is an assured way to appeal to millions of potential customers around the world and thus to promote your products and services to a wider audience. Making it multilingual and understandable for the global community is vital. What if we say that website translation does not require the involvement of busy engineers and a tedious preparation process?
Crowdin introduces JS Proxy – technology aimed at helping teams effortlessly localize websites. No manual source content export or translation copy-pasting.
They say you can’t improve what you can’t measure. A pretty obvious statement that gets trickier if applied to the translation quality control.

Read on to learn how you can configure the app for your Crowdin and Crowdin Enterprise projects and track the quality, productivity, and efficiency of translation with the industry-standard metrics.
