The not-so-fine print.

Don't forget to mention this promo when you request your first localization. You must send us your strings and pay for the project by July 15, 2015. That gives you plenty of time to get your project ready for localization! Use our free knowledge base tools to help. This discount is for new clients only.

What's the dev portal do?


The more we know...

Our translations are better than most because we make a lot more effort to answer translators' questions and give the proper context or screenshots in-line as they work.

If you don't send us context (shame on you!) we do our best to fill in these blanks for you.


The right tools for the job

Our translators use in-house tools that preserve your code and tags unchanged.

Updates are easy too — just send us your latest source strings and we'll take care of the rest!

Common questions

Which languages should I choose?
The most popular 10 localization languages are… Spanish, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Japanese, Korean, Simplified Chinese, Russian, and Dutch. It depends on your target and your budget, and especially who is already downloading your app. Check iTunes Connect and select languages based on countries where you are already popular. Those are the best markets for you to start with.

How long will it take to localize my app?
It depends on the number of words in the app, not the number of languages. (We assign each language to a native, professional app translator from our team, and all translators will work on your localization simultaneously.) Generally, an app of 500 words will take just 3 business days. 5,000 words will take a couple of weeks. We're much faster than your QA period, so that's a good time to begin when all your strings and error messages are finalized.

What about my app description?
Yes, send that too! It counts for the promo. And don't forget your KEYWORDS. You'll need those to be localized for discovery in the App Store.

What about updates to my app?
We handle those too, and it's a snap! Just send us the latest, complete English strings. You'll be charged only for what's new and changed. We never charge for duplicate lines.

What about my Android app?
The discount is valid for all types of apps. Did we mention we don't charge for duplicate lines? If your Android and iOS app share a lot of identical strings, it shouldn't cost much at all! Promo is good for one project, which we define as all the translations completed on a single invoice.

What about my Windows app?
Really? You are a unique 512 pixels reader! Yes, we localize anything with strings, including websites, Windows, Java, even Symbian. Just let me dust off the ol’ typewriter and we'll post your invoice within the fortnight!
