Decide where to focus
Translate those text strings
Translation doesn’t need to break the bank. Get your text strings localized with one of these easy options:
Google App Translation Service: Purchase professional translations through Google Play’s Developer Console.
Of course, you can always find your own translation vendor, or see more options in this guide.
Consider the culture
Considering cultural contexts is important when fully localizing your app. Start with your title, description and icon, then test what works best for your users.
How to localize
- Title Make sure your app title fits the local market. Keep your title focused: it should be unique and accessible, avoid common terms, and reinforce what your app is about.
- Description Descriptions should be short and sweet, with the first sentence summing up what your app does and what users will get from it.
- Icon Take a look at different examples in each market you want to target. Users in Asia tend to prefer the cute and the colorful, while for US and European users, keep icons simple and focus on one or two features.
