Online translation platforms

Online translation platforms

What good online/Web services for translating software do you know?
Please give a list. :)

Such a web service enable contributors to help translating a software in the Web. The maintainers of the software to be translated will then pull the translations from the web service when they need them.

There is only one criteria I have: The web service should not force users (i.e. the translators) to execute any proprietary JavaScript or other proprietary client code.
It's OK if the source code of web service itself (server-side) is not published, as it doesn't threaten the freedom of the users.

I am not sure if it meets your criteria, but Weblate seems used in several important projects.

100% FLOSS, but you have to host it yourself:

http://pootle.translatehouse.org/

These 2 are very useful too but proprietary - I have no looked at the legal state of their JavaScript:

http://transifex.com/ - Free to use for FLOSS projects
http://crowdin.com/ - Not as familiar with that one as with Transifex.

Pootle is a great mention, the feature list looks amazing. Instant bookmark. I have never seen a Pootle instance in the wild so far. Do you know any project (preferably a game) which uses Pootle?

I like Weblate, too. I know it from Minetest. Weblate is useful if you can keep it simple and only have PO files and not a clusterfuck of 100 different translation formats. ;-)

Transifex is almost certainly proprietary JS. There is tons of scripting, there is no indication of license anywhere and the fact they don't brag about how open they are is telling. ;)
Can't access Crowdin right now.

I think Libreoffice is being translated with Pootle, see: https://translations.documentfoundation.org/
