Localization of Android Apps

If you want to add another language for your app do the following

  • Create a new folder e.g. app/src/main/res/values-de
  • Add strings.xml into this folder
  • Translate the content

The cool thing about translation in android is that you can do it incrementally: when there is no translation for a string resource in a locale Android will automagically use the value from /res/values/strings.xml
