Based in Montreal, Canada, Tutor With Me was founded in 2011, and conceived as a multi-lingual platform from the start.

However, localization quickly became difficult to manage - particularly in the early stages of app development when localization significantly slowed progress.

In early 2012, the Tutor With Me development team began to use Locale to solve the problems associated with multi-language support and content management.

Andrew Gardener, Tutor With Me co-founder & director of development explains:

Locale is a powerful tool that made it possible for us to organize and manage content more efficiently. Since we plan to offer our services in multiple languages in the near future, Locale makes the whole process easier, and allows our translators to work in an user-friendly environment.
