Documentation on how to translate software with POEditor

All POEditor users get a free plan, which can host up to 1000 strings, just by registering. If you need a plan with more strings to manage the localization of your software, you can subscribe to a paid plan.

How we count the strings

The number of strings in an account is the sum of terms and translations in all the projects hosted on that account.

For example, if you have just one project in your account, with 10 terms, translated fully into one language, and just 50% completed in a second language, you have 25 strings in your account (10 terms + 10 translations in the first language + 5 in the second language).

How to find out how many strings you need

Import the localization files with the source language to your POEditor project(s), add all the language you want to localize to, and then have a look at the text at bottom of the pricing page.

Available plans

The available plans are listed here. If you need more strings than the largest plan has to offer, we can make you a custom subscription, just contact us. The cost for every additional 10 000 strings is a flat $10/mo.

Who should buy the subscription

All the strings added to a project are counted against the limit of the account hosting the project. So the subscription has to be on the account hosting the localization projects, either purchased by that account, or by another account, added as payer.

Other team members (contributors, admins) do not need to purchase a subscription.

Payment methods

The standard payment method is by credit card. If you subscribe for one year for the Enterprise plan, you can also pay by wire transfer.

Billing cycles

As previously stated, the standard payment method is by credit card. Payments are recurrent, and you can decide to pay monthly, every 6 months, or yearly.

Discounts

Paying in advance for 6 or 12 months comes with discounts: 10% and 15% respectively.

Invoices

Invoices are generated automatically upon payment, in the account paying for the subscription. They can be found in the account's billing section. If you want, you can send invoices to an additional email address.

Note: The string limit is not cumulative from one billing cycle to another. It represents the maximum amount of strings you can store in an account, at any given time, for as long as you are subscribed to that plan.
