What should I get translated?

Localizing your app naturally starts with the app itself. When it comes to OSX apps there's quite a bit to think about. If you're sending directly to a translator (not Applingua) then you need to think about extracting the strings in your XIB files into plain text .strings files.
How long does it take to localize an app?

How long does it take to localize an app?

Simple answer: How long is a piece of string? Better answer: Each and every app is different. Different in size, in type, in target market. Each of these differences have an effect on the time it takes to localize an app.
Which Dialect Should I Choose?

Which Dialect Should I Choose?

There are several languages which have certain differences depending on where they are spoken. The classic example would be Spanish. Spanish is spoken in 20 different countries worldwide, each with their own regional twist on the language. Sometimes dialects are as simple to compare as British English is to American English, but other times the two dialects differ so greatly that one would not be so easily understood by the other.

Testing an App on Your Own Device (iOS)

Testing an App on Your Own Device (iOS)

It is possible to install a development build of an app on your own iOS device for Quality Assurance testing.

This post looks intimidating but it's actually pretty easy!
