In order to improve the revenue and downloads for iOS apps, they must be localized in the world’s most popular languages. Why? Because most users prefer to download apps in their native languages. Multiple statistics recently published solidify these demographic behaviors among iOS device users worldwide.
How much does it usually cost to hire a localization service provider?
The costs can range from $45 to $75 per hour to have your Xcode strings localized by a programmer or developer in the U.S., and translation of the app can cost $1000.00 or more depending on the size of the project. If you intend on localizing multiple apps in multiple languages, you can see how costly this could become.
If you are an iOS or Mac app developer who is new or experienced with the localization process, and have tried to localize your app on your own, you already know how much time is involved in the process and you may be thinking you need to outsource your Xcode localization project if you need to translate your strings in multiple languages to improve your app’s marketability and sales. Professional, native translators are always a necessity if you want your apps to truly appeal to geo-targeted users.

Streamlining your iOS and Mac app localization while saving money.
Typically, the most time consuming process in localization is making the Xcode strings localizable. Most developers we’ve received case studies and feedback from already developed their apps in one language because they either didn’t even consider localizing or they didn’t want to consider the process until after development due to the time involved and/or the cost of hiring a localization service. We all want to bring our products to market in the fastest way possible at the least cost.
TraductoPro was developed for all of these reasons. We wanted to bring a streamlined, automated process for localization to iOS and Mac app developers along with certified human translation services because we knew that internationalizing apps would be a major concern in the future. Since U.S. downloads of apps only make up around 28% of the world’s market share, all app developers would need to consider localization to reach users in groups among the remaining 70% of the app market.
The primary benefits of using TraductoPro to localize all of your Xcode projects is the ability to manage multiple projects from one interface. You can localize in multiple languages in half the time it would take to do it on your own or the costs to hire a traditional translation or localization service.
Don’t forget about localizing your website and marketing content.
It is one thing to localize your apps, but what about your website content and other marketing documents? This is important for search engine optimization in other countries you intend to market your apps to as well as advertising or reaching app store users you intend to geo-target. Save yourself the cost and improve your return on investment more quickly by adding your content for translation along with your Xcode projects in TraductoPro.
