Lightbulb [TO ALL APP DEVELOPERS] How make your app multilanguage - 99translations

Hi XDA Developers!

I wanna present all of you very usefull site.
With this site you can have your app in many languages very, very easy.
This is 99translations:



Only that you must to do, is create a project named like your app, and include all phrases from your app.
A volunteer (or with some cash, everyone can set how much want in $ for translate one word in profile)
from other countries can open your project and translate phrases to own language.

I worked (for free) with this site at "Buddycloud" project - a Symbian social app (mix of Twitter and iRC):



Translating process is very, very easy. Translator can use a Google Translator for help:



Also project author having many, very useful tools. For example if you need one specific translation, you can choose your translator from list ("People tab")

More info for app developers you can find in "Tools" tab:

XDA is about developing and is for developers. Any user that recognizes that will gain the most benefit from this site


 
This is and always will be a site for developers, pure and simple. Without them we are nothing, without them there would be no reason for XDA Developers to exist; we should never ever forget that. Without them this place would not be called XDA-Developers but something else, e.g Mobile Phone User Support Services For Ungrateful Nerds.

No problem. This is in our interess having apps in own language. Not many apps here are translated to polish. Not every developer know how organize translations... I know that translating some apps is hard or impossible.

It's hard to standarise this process. This advice/thread for sure will help translating many apps for free and in organized way.

I think i posted this in tight section, because this advice matching to any app or other project. I reported to mods to move thread to better section (General?).

I hope this advice will be accepted and good received by our dev's.

Well, it's hard to tell. Maybe developer can give access to his project only for selected, trusted ppl (knowed from forum for example).
People will make translation for own advantage (and other ppl speaking in the same language). For sure developer(s) can check translation (with built-in Google Translate tool) correctness before include it to app.
It looks lil'bit fondly, but i belive that someone who take this chellenge will not screw it.

Some incentive to translating can be free license (Epocware gives me few free licenses after i translated few they's app's).

If any developer need more details, then can ask developer "Elvis" (on 99translation site), im sure that he will helpfull (i translated BuddyCloud for him).
