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...

Our Localization Rates Are Changing

Over the last three and a half years, Applingua has been proud to offer one single rate of translation across all languages. It made it easy for our clients, easy for our translators and easy for our accountants 😉 As it has always been our mission to make the translation process as smooth as possible we’ve been absorbing the additional costs of doing this for a while,...

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...

Ask Applingua: How do I Decide Which Languages to Localize My App Into?

Of all the questions we get asked by developers, this is probably the most common one. It’s the million dollar question (though no localization should ever cost that much!), and there’s never going to be an easy answer to all of the questions surrounding your choice.. “How do I know which languages my users speak? What if I pick the wrong languages? How do I...

Ask Applingua: How Can I Trust Translation Quality?

It’s difficult to judge the quality of something when you don’t really know what you’re looking for and when you can’t speak the language it’s written in. This is especially the case when you’re entrusting the reputation of your app to a third-party, without many means of checking their work.  How do I know that the quality of the translations I get back is going...
