Case Study: Harri




Harri, a key player in the Human Capital Management (HCM) and workflow management industry, faced a common issue as it expanded internationally and work with international clients already in multiple markets. Wanting to reach various markets, the challenge was to translate app strings and weekly app updates efficiently into multiple languages.


The manual extraction of strings for translation was time-consuming and resource-intensive. Harri was in search of a solution that could automate file exchange and, at the same time, provide control over the review cycle.
