Applingua is off to GDC 2016!

We may only have the word ‘app’ in our name, but over the last five years we’ve been fortunate to work with some really beautiful games on the App Store. Take Alto’s Adventure, for example, we worked closely with the developers over at Built by Snowman to not only translate their captivating game, but also ensure the experience in other languages rivalled that in English....

Translators, Likes and Facebook

In September it was rumoured that Facebook was going to make changes to the ubiquitous Like button. Come February, what we thought might be a drop in the ocean turned out to be something much bigger. Mark Zuckerberg made waves when he announced the decision to expand on the Like button with six additional buttons! In the social media world, it was an important decision...

Celebrating 5 Years!

An incredible five years ago, I sat down at a spare desk in my parents house and started working on Applingua’s first website. I had just moved back to the UK from Munich and didn’t have a penny to my name. One thing was clear to me at that time from my previous job, software localization was far too difficult for developers. I was convinced...

Please Apple, It’s Time To Support Arabic*

Hi Apple, Long time no speak! We are just asking again if it would be possible to add additional language support to iTunes Connect. We’ve spoken about this before, on our blog, on Twitter, in person at WWDC, but it’s almost 2016 and we thought we’d ask once more. After all, it is Christmas! 😉 Some nice new iTunes Connect changes, but Arabic is *still not supported* as a...

Apps in Welsh – The Welsh App Directory

About a year ago we pitched a project to Welsh Government which we hoped would increase the number of apps available in the Welsh. I’m happy to report, a year on, not only was our proposal successful, but we’ve now translated over 50 apps into Welsh. App translation and localization is obviously our forte here at Applingua, but working with a language such as Welsh, which...

Applingua’s most useful iOS 8 feature

We’ve all been using iOS 8 for some months now and despite all the whizz-bang showcase features, it takes a while until your favourite feature really stands out. For us, it’s Apple’s iOS language selection list. We’ve been translating apps for nearly four years now and we know by sight all of Apple’s previously supported languages. However iOS 8 introduced support for hundreds more and learning what each language is, without...

WWDC 2014: Session Videos

“To take your application to the next level, you simply must localize.” That’s how Xcode Software Engineer, Zolten Foley-Fisher, began his session at WWDC this year on Localization with Xcode 6. We couldn’t agree more. This year’s WWDC broke ground in so many ways, it’d be almost impossible for us to list them all here. Naturally we’ve been digging through the WWDC Session Videos to find...

Ask Applingua: How long does it take to localize an app?

Perhaps the most difficult question we get asked here at Applingua is how long it takes to localize an app. You’ve heard the expression, ‘how long is a piece of string’ right? “How long does it take to localize an app? What’s an average number of strings? Will app localization or translation impact my release schedule?” Let’s try to give some indication of what’s involved...
