Localization best practices?

Charmaine Anderson 5 years ago updated by Ezra Weinstein (Administrator) 5 years ago 4
Can you advise what is the best method to localize one's app, should one try to include all the localized text and voice into the same app and allow the user to select their language preference, or do most people create separate mobile apps for each country/language supported and upload each localized version of the app into the app store?  Also if you can recommend someone or a company that does app localization that would be awesome. Thanks for your insight.

Hi Charmaine, I think the best way to do this is to have all the text and voice into the same app and allow the user to select their language preference. Here is a quick tutorial on how you can do this using InteractBuilder:

Thanks Alin! I will try that. My only concern with integrating localized audio into the same app is that it will increase the file size and download time, I guess this is a good reason to build smaller apps if you use this method.  
Well you can easily make the app with one language then duplicate the app and change the audio behaviors target. But only if you have a big amount of audio files and you want to keep you app as small as you can.
