Tolgee is a localization software and translation management system designed to help developers and teams make their web applications multilingual. It aims to simplify the process of translating and managing content, providing an easy-to-use interface for both developers and translators.

One of Tolgee's notable features is its integration capabilities with various web frameworks and content management systems, making it adaptable to different development environments. This enables seamless integration into existing projects, reducing the time and effort required to implement multilingual support.

By centralizing translation and localization efforts, Tolgee helps maintain consistency across languages and facilitates updates to translations as the application evolves. It also provides version control for translations, ensuring that previous translations can be referenced and restored if needed.
