Upgrade to Poedit 3

Version 3 is a major upgrade and as such, its Pro features require a new license. If you have an active Pro+ subscription or purchased Poedit Pro on or after November 12, 2020, your license was already upgraded for free.

Upgrade pricing with 30% discount is available to customers with older licenses.
Subscriptions are 30% off in the 1st year and have a 15% discount on all future renewals.

Terminology search

The new Terminology tab in Poedit’s sidebar provides a quick way to check consistency of your translation. You can search previous translations within the file or even your entire translation memory. You can create a personal glossary too.

Smart placeholders in pre-translation

Machine translation is now much smarter about recognizing special-syntax placeholders in the text and preserving them in the translation unmodified.


WordPress support for Gutenberg and JSON translations (FTP).

...and more

  • Customizable file extensions for extraction (e.g. treat .html files as Twig templates)
  • Configurable quality checks: disable categories and mark warnings as false positives

Common Questions

Which plan should I choose?

The Pro and Pro+ plans are personal licenses for individuals and can be used for both commercial and non-commercial purposes. The license is valid for one person and can be used on up to 3 computers (whether running Windows, macOS, or Linux). These personal licenses cannot be transferred to or shared with other persons.

Pro is a one-time purchase with 12 months of updates included; Pro+ is a subscription with more powerful machine translation and with all upgrades free.

The For Teams plan allows organisations to manage the license for all team members centrally. Unlike with personal licenses, seats under the Teams plan can be assigned to employees, revoked or moved to another employee as your needs change or employees leave the company. You can remove or add more seats at any time.

What happens if I cancel my Pro+ subscription?

You’ll still have a personal Pro license. All Pro features will continue to work, except for pre-translation and machine-translation that will stop with the subscription. You’ll also stop receveing updates to new versions.

What does 1 year of updates mean?

When you buy Poedit Pro, your license includes one year of feature updates and machine translation. Afterwards, you can continue using the version you have, renew right away or wait until there’s more new features. It’s totally up to you.

When will I receive the license key?

As soon as you make a purchase and your order is accepted, your license key will be emailed to you straight away.

What payment methods do you accept?

Checkout is powered by Paddle. They support major credit and debit cards, PayPal, Apple Pay and other payment methods.

I need an invoice, where can I request it?

You will receive an invoice by email with your purchase.
