Why is the pricing so complicated?
We are aware of the pricing could be confusing in the beginning - but guess it will make sense when you start using the service.
You will get charged on your monthly subscription date. The items are:
  • Words -> The costs for every word (all languages) stored in the version (normally latest) with most words (the word count is calculated by splitting the text by spaces and newlines)
  • Modifications -> Any translation (key/value) added, updated, deleted, imported or copied via UI or API (also for empty values)
  • Downloads -> Every translation file (not word) that gets downloaded from our CDN (if you’re using that feature)
The price per unit go down the higher your numbers are. For details check out the pricing page: https://locize.com/pricing.html (scroll down to the details).

An example:

during the trial
first month
second month
You'll import 3'000 words for 3 languages: 3’000 words x 3 languages -> 9’000 words * 0.004 -> $36
Assuming 15 words per key, these 9'000 words are grouped in 600 keys: 600 added keys -> 600 modifications x 0.04 -> $24
Assuming 2 namespaces per language, and 300 downloads: 2 namespaces x 3 languages x 300 downloads -> 1'800 downloads x 0.0001 -> $0.18
This means you would be charged for: 9'000 words => $36 600 modifications => $24 => free during trial -> $0 1'800 downloads => $0.18 => free during trial -> $0 base fee => $5 total => $65.18 => $41
We suggest to import all your existing translations during the trial, this way all generated modifications are set to zero on subscription. The trial ends after the 14 days or as soon as you subscribe.
Let's assume in this month, your production website is completely integrated with locize (so you're generating normal traffic downloads) and you're just fixing a couple of typos.
You have still 3'000 existing words for 3 languages: 3’000 words x 3 languages -> 9’000 words * 0.004 -> $36
Assuming 10 typos in 10 different keys: 10 updated keys -> 10 modifications x 0.04 -> $0.40
Assuming you're equally generating the same amount of downloads for each language: 2 namespaces x 3 languages x 10'000 downloads -> 60'000 downloads x 0.0001 -> $6
This means you would be charged for: 9'000 words => $36 10 modifications => $0.40 60'000 downloads => $6 base fee => $5 total => $47.40
In this month you decide to add an additional language, and remove some old keys.
Starting with your 3'000 existing words for 3 languages, you'll remove 500 words per language and add an additional language: 2’500 words x 4 languages -> 10'000 words * 0.004 -> $40
Assuming again 15 words per key, you would have generated approximately 30 modifications per language for the removal of some old keys and approximately 160 modifications for the newly added language: 30 removed keys x 3 languages -> 90 modifications x 0.04 -> $3.60 160 added keys x 1 new language -> 160 modifications x 0.04 -> $6.40 totally 250 generated modifications -> 250 modifications x 0.04 -> $10
Assuming you're equally generating the same amount of downloads for each language: 2 namespaces x 3 languages x 10'000 downloads -> 60'000 downloads x 0.0001 -> $6
This means you would be charged for: 10'000 words => $40 250 modifications => $10 60'000 downloads => $6 base fee => $5 total => $61
We know all those cost units can be confusing - but this is the only way to more or less get a fair pricing for all the different projects out there. Overall you will see costs below competitors while providing a lot more features. There is a 14d free trial you can start using without any obligations -> on the billing page you will have an overview over the costs of the current month.
A little advice: be aware that modifications and downloads are set to zero on subscription.
