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...

Ask Applingua: How Difficult is it to Support Localizations?

If you’re an app developer, you may be reluctant to localize your app and hey, we get it. Maybe you’ve heard that localising your app will open a can of worms, or maybe you’re concerned about the possible extra work involved. “Will it take long to adapt my UI to make localizations possible? What about future updates? And how will I even support non-native users?”...

Dydd Gŵyl Dewi Hapus! What We Learnt About Building An App in 24 Hours

You might not be aware of this, but we’re proud of our Welsh roots here at Applingua HQ. Despite regularly translating apps in over 25 different languages, we’re often saddened by how few Welsh language apps there are on the App Store. Unfortunately Apple don’t make it easy either, as Welsh is still officially unsupported by iOS devices. However, where there’s a will, there’s a...

iOS7: Our Favourite Redesigns!

Redesigns – everyone is at it these days. Apple redesigned their mobile operating system, we redesigned our website and now our daily apps are following suit. God guys, copy cats much? 😉 And nothing quite says Christmas as the snow white of iOS 7. It’s been out for a few months now and we’ve had some time to really put these apps through their paces, here...

Time For Something New – Redesigning Applingua.com

Applingua has been around for a few years. A few people know about us now (hi mum!) and we’ve had a couple of iterations of our site. They’ve always been a static HTML site with a WordPress blog attached, but this time we decided the time had come to make it bigger, better and prettier, so we decided to go for a complete WordPress install....
