POEditor is a collaborative web-based software localization tool designed for translators and software developers who, through localization, want to make their products and services available on a global market. An API is available for developers to integrate the software's functionality into their own applications. Methods include listing projects, viewing project details, adding terms to a project, updating language and more. The API uses RESTful calls and responses are formatted in JSON.
Of the many APIs we published this week, six were highlighted on the blog by our team of writers. In this post, we’ll launch those six into the spotlight, which included the Flexpaper API. Flexpaper is an open source document viewer. Functionality allows documents to be annotated: highlighted, commented, underlined, and drawn on. The API displays in HTML, HTML5, Adobe Flash or any combination of the three.
POEditor's goal is simple: "A simple way to translate your software." POEditor accomplishes this task through a global community of translators who can work on needed translations or launch projects of their own. POEditor developed as a browser-based software localization tool. However, developers can now leverage the platform within existing sites and apps with the POEditor API. The API calls project related data and allows developers to track progress and users to work on projects.
