Create a Multilingual app

AppMachine offers its users a multilingual feature. This way, you can translate the content of your app into several different languages. If a user’s device is set to one of the languages you’ve made available, the app should automatically show the content in that language. If the user’s device is set to a language not supported by your translations, the app will shown the content in the default language.

This feature will be available to Pro subscriptions only and will work as follows once it becomes available.

  1. Open your app
  2. Go to Settings > Advanced in the left vertical menu
  3. Under Localization > Languages enter all the languages that you intend to support in the app.
  4. Under  Localization > Default Language select the language the app should default to should the user’s phone not be set to one of the languages your app supports.
  5. Go to the Content in the left vertical menu.
  6. At the top right of your screen you will now see a dropdown menu that has been filled with the languages you plan to support in the app.

    PLEASE NOTE: If you’ve already filled the app with content, then you should set whatever language used as your default language.
  7. Once you’ve filled all the content for your default language, select the language you’d like to translate your existing content to from the drop-down at the top right.
    You will notice that all blocks with translatable content will feature an exclamation point. Areas within the block that need to be translated will have their labels in red until that content has been edited and saved.
  8. Add the translated content to all your blocks. (Don't forget to translate the block's name!)
  9. Do the same for all the languages you plan to support.

PLEASE NOTE: The multilingual feature is not yet available for Pro blocks. Also, this feature has not yet been extended to the default texts in the app. If you plan on using a language that is not yet available in our translation library, please contact us at support@appmachine.com so that we can arrange for these terms to be translated (preferably by you).

    The "Configuration" block does not show the options for choice of languages!
    the "i" button at the top of the app does not show languages.
    How should I proceed?

    Thank you

    "If a user’s device is set to one of the languages you’ve made available, the app should automatically show the content in that language. If the user’s device is set to a language not supported by your translations, the app will shown the content in the default language." There is no option to change the app's language in its settings.
