Mobile App Translation

Speak the language of your users

Mobile apps need to speak the language of the user, as they are often used in personal settings. Even enterprise apps are localized so as to reach the maximum number of users across the world. Mobile app translation enables better user experience (UX) – in fact, it is strongly recommended on app stores such as Apple’s and Google’s. These app marketplaces are available in hundreds of countries. Developers can easily take advantage of the global access these stores provide with app localization. Translating your app helps in its discovery, download, and use. It also contributes towards building a more engaged and loyal user base.

How to manage the Continuous translation/ Agile localization?

Mobile App Translation

Whether you’re localizing for Android or iOS, note that mobile app content is dynamic and is sometimes updated several times a day. Hence, translation of this content is near-continuous too, or needs to be. Below are the few tips to help your product team to ensure high-quality and uninterrupted translation of the mobile app.

  • Use tech solutions to manage translation: Technologies such as plugins to connect directly to code repositories such as GitHub, GitLab, Bitbucket OR straightforward integrations with various native SDKs such as iOS and Android Studio etc., or with app stores, make it possible to reduce manual hand-off files and many other human touchpoints, thus reducing scope for errors and speeding up work. The translations are delivered over-the-air (OTA).
  • Integrate the localization team with the app development team: If the teams are in sync from the start, they know what’s expected of each other and fully appreciate why they need to collaborate, and thus improves quality, reduces friction, and is quicker on the whole.
  • Work with the right app localization company: It must understand tech and translation to scale when required, and must have enough expertise in your domain as well as the required resources in the languages you’re looking to translate.

-Translate visible as well as invisible text. This includes all the UI text, the underlying code, and any user support information such as help text. You need to research the right keywords in every locale which people may be using to look for the product/service that you offer. This process is called multilingual search engine optimization (SEO). With the release of every new update, there will be new content to be translated.
