If you are developing mobile apps for an international audience, you should plan ahead for the language translations. Here are four tips to make the process easier for you:

  1. Use the minimum number of words. Spanish, Portuguese and French translations use 20-30% percent more words than English so the translations may not appear correctly on all screens.
  2. Have a professional translator test it. After testing the translated app, the translator should tell you if it flows well from a linguistic point of view.
  3. Steer clear of slang, colloquialisms, and sports analogies. They may not translate well (if at all) into another language.
  4. Consider navigation. Some languages are read from right to left so you may have to create two design templates.
