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.
Mobile app localization is the process of adapting an app's user interface, functionality, app store listings, and all connected content elements that need to be localized to meet the cultural and language expectations of different geographical target markets.
Mobile app localization consists of various services such as translation, localizing the code and user interface(UI), and testing for translation quality as well as functionality. However, a preliminary study of your target market is needed to understand which variant of a language is required, how users tend to use apps, the demography, and soon. Our App localization consultation team can help you understand the critical details if you are not familiar with the concept or don't have skilled resources.
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.
Whether you are creating native Android & iOS apps, hybrid or progressive apps or even web apps, you need a centralized translation management system.

The promotion of your app on app marketplaces in the language of the user is equally important to increase the reach of your app to native users.
