In addition to translation, Stepes also provides localized app testing services, spanning functional, linguistic, and cosmetic validations.
Two Ways to Translate Your Apps with Success
Stepes provides our customers with two ways to translate their iOS or Android apps.
If you’re only looking to have Stepes translate the user interface (UI) strings of your app, all you need to do is to send us the string resource files. For iOS, this is the localizable.strings within your XCode project folder, and for Android, this is the strings.xml file within your Java project resource directory. Once we translate the strings into the designated languages, you’ll need to take care of putting these localized resource files into the appropriate directories for your app to load the foreign language text properly. You may also need to run the localized app to check for text truncations and other localization related issues. Upon receiving your testing report, we’ll then implement the changes and redeliver the updated resource files for you to build the final release.
End-to-End App Localization Services
Many of our iOS and Android clients don’t have the technical resources or localization expertise to know how to get started with app translation. The good news is they can rely on Stepes to take care of the entire localization production end-to-end. Stepes provides full-service app localization solutions so our clients can focus on what they do the best, developing better and more powerful apps. In this case, Stepes will take care of translation, compile the localized app, perform app testing, and build the final multilingual app for you to release to the App Store or Google Play market.
iOS App Localization
Stepes offers highly streamlined translation and localization workflow for iOS apps that are distributed using the App Store. Apple has done a great job isolating and organizing the language resources in logical structures so translating iOS apps are now easier than it’s ever been. Stepes localization engineers are highly experienced with iOS Internationalization and Localization with XCode. In addition to translating Localizable.strings, we regularly process NSLocalizedString, Main.strings, and Info.plist.
Android App Localization
Stepes is an undisputed leader in app translation services for Google Android. This is because Stepes itself is a translation app for mobile devices. We have in-depth experience translating a variety of Android apps. Android has published guidelines for UI strings to make the translation process easier. If you use standard UI terms, many of the translations are already available in Google’s standard resource library. This will ensure clear and consistent translations of common UI terms, while at the same time saving cost. Stepes provides translation and localization app testing for all Android applications.
