Localize Raises $1.1M in Seed Funding

localizeLocalize, a San Francisco, CA-based business translation platform for both large enterprises and SMBs, raised a $1.1m in seed funding.

The round was led by FG Angels (via AngelList Syndicate), with participation from Kima Ventures, zPark, and Matchstick Ventures.

The company intends to use the funds to continue to grow the team and scale their translation software and localization platform for startups.

Led by Brandon Paton, CEO, Localize provides a translation automation platform via a copy/paste Javascript snippet. Following the snippet addition, advanced routing workflows for content help automate the process, allowing to adapt a product for local customs and preferences (like tone, colors, or layout design).
An API makes Localize programmatically accessible to developers while the dashboard provides a workspace for collaboration among in-house translators, 3rd-party translation agencies (with real-time quotes), community members, and business translation services.
Localize has now served over 70 million pages from enterprise customers like Uber (driver recruiting), Intuit (QBO Labs), WeWork, Airbnb, and Microsoft LATAM, plus more than four hundred more in over 40 countries, with content in over 150 languages.
Recent product launches include a partnership with Textmaster and content labeling, which are the foundation for language-specific media switching, a quality-assurance workflow, and improvements to in-context editing.
