London Regional Group: Translation for mobile apps

6 September 2022 7pm – 9.30pm BST ITI Networks face-to-face London

Ever thought about what it takes to translate and localise a mobile app?

Mobile phone apps, also used on tablets, are becoming increasingly popular. LRG member, Daniela Ford, will talk about this new and growing area and present some of the challenges associated with this very interesting field and translation opportunity. Originally intended for email, calendar and contact databases, apps have expanded into areas such as games, factory automation, GPS and location-based services, and ticket purchases. Daniela will explain how to identify localisable strings from code and how to translate them. Participants will work on exercises in small groups; for this exercise, those who translate into English can translate into their source language(s).
