The process of localizing Xcode strings for multilingual applications is a costly and time consuming aspect of app development. Developing Mac and iOS apps can be a lucrative venture, but the most critical part of marketing the app to a global market requires localization.
Typically, there are four processes involved in localizing your apps:
1. Making your strings localizable in Xcode.
2. Extracting strings from code and interface files.
3. Sending strings files for translation.
4. Processing the translated strings back into your app.
Each of the processes involved can take 85+ hours or longer depending on the complexity or size of the project. With TraductoPro, the process becomes virtually automated. You simply import your Xcode project, order your translation in the language(s) of your choice, and your strings are localized in a matter of hours.
Why is TraductoPro different than other localization tools and services?
If you are hiring a service or provider to localize your Mac and iOS applications, the control of your project is passed on to the provider generally on a project by project basis and can be very expensive. With TraductoPro, you control and manage your projects and order translations through the project panel and the costs are nominal compared to other types of localization and translation services.
Since TraductoPro is an app for your Mac, it’s easy to use. You can store and export all your Xcode project files as well as create App Store metadata and all your multilingual marketing content in one interface. TraductoPro also handles macronization – automatic conversion of strings into localizable strings, duplicate strings, and automatic export of localized resource files back into Xcode.
