Language affects users’ experiences—and our apps’ success. It’s time developers (and not just designers) consider localization a part of their job. This talk sheds light on localization from an Android developer’s perspective and calls attention to the problems and the solutions that are in place.
This talk is aimed at Android developers of all shapes and sizes, irrespective of their level of technical expertise.
