Supporting unsupported languages in iOS

Old blog post! Since iOS 8 all languages are now supported, including Welsh! Yippee! Read here for more infomration Remember when we wrote about Apple and the unsupported languages issue? Occasionally we get asked to translate languages we cannot support. It’s not that we don’t want to, it’s just that Apple hasn’t yet included native support in iOS. Ironically, Applingua HQ is based in a country...

Localization Myths – The Truth About Localization

Hello, iPad mini

Few of us were surprised, we all knew deep down that Apple would one day introduce a smaller, more affordable iPad. Well here it is, the iPad mini featuring a 7.9″ screen and mostly the same...
