Multiple Language Support in Android Applications

Hello everyone. We will speak about how to support multiple languages in Android Applications.

Android Operating System runs on millions of devices in many regions. In these regions, people speak many languages. If you develop an application in your language, you can not publish your application around the world. Even if you publish, people around the world will not use your application. Because of this, you should support multiple languages in your application.

So, how can you support multiple languages? Will you develop another application for every other language? No.

You will develop one application and in this application, you will give multiple language support.

So, the system works like this. Android operating system considers English default language. You will develop your application in English language. After that, you can support other languages. But you should be careful. You will consider supporting multiple languages from the beginning.

If the device language of the user is English, Android Operating System shows your application in English language. If the device of the user is another language and your application supports this language, Android shows your application in this language. If your application does not support user language, Android shows your application in English language again.

For example, you developed an application in English language and you supported French language. If the device language of the user is French, your application will be seen in French language. But, if the device language of the user is German, your application will be seen English language. Because your application does not support German language.

So, this article was about Multiple Language Support for Android Applications. I hope that it was usefull.
