Apple iPad Localization and Translation

Damian discusses iPad translation with Pat Walsh of DiaryPlan.

iPhone and iPad Localization for Apps

Yesterday we got our hands on one of the first iPads in Ireland at the Guinness Enterprise Centre’s Open Enterprise day for new software development start-ups.

It was a tough day — 08:30 to 19:30 — probably one of the most exciting events we’ve attended. Congratulations to all involved.

The keynote speaker was Jonathan Siegel, founder of the consultancy ELC Technologies. ELC build cool applications from FunnyOrDie to ESPN and Nascar. Jonathan showed a great passion for software application development and how the iPhone and iPad had broken the mould and opened up some very exciting development opportunities for software companies.

He demoed the new iPad and some of their applications. Apple have already sold over one million iPads worldwide. The iPhone technology currently has an installed user base of some 80 million users.

We discussed iPad Localization and iPhone app translation and how this was the next challenge for the platform.

Pat Walsh from Diary Plan and Damian Scattergood, STAR Translation, Dublin discuss the iPad localization process.

Make an iPad App

The interactive session with Collin Ruffenach took a brief look at the iPhone and iPad marketplace and then dived into the dirty work of building an iPad application. With the help of a few iPads in the room, a brief overview of XCode and the iPhone SDK, we got a glimpse of how to build your first application.

    For iPad app localization, I suggest using an online tool to help the translation process, for all you developers: https://poeditor.com/. It engages several translators on the same project and it also has an automatic translation function.
