Frequently Asked Questions
What is Android and iOS app localization?
Android and iOS app localization is the translation of the app strings into different languages, while maintaining cultural relevance.
What is the difference between app localization and internationalization?
Internationalization starts earlier in the app designing stage. It is the process that prepares the app’s software in a way the makes localization possible; adapting the app to be available in different languages. App localization, on the other hand, involves the engineering – and linguistic – changes of an internalized app to be fit for a specific locale. In other words, internalization paves the way for app localization and app localization builds on internalization.
What are the countries to localize your app to?
In order to decide on what countries to localize to, you need to conduct in-depth market research in the countries with the highest downloads for this type of app. You can study competitors, or if you have already launched the app, you can analyze its downloads.
